Around 8 or 9 years ago through a mixture of my final year at Uni, getting a job and moving city i (foolishly?) stopped skateboarding, but thanks to digging through a box and finding an xbox 360 copy of skate 2, I’ve been inspired to start up again. dug out my old board and started getting back to grips with it all.
I’m 30 now, living in Leicester and looking for tips on building my confidence, getting back my bag of tricks and seeing whats changed since 2010. surely there’s a few others who’ve been through the same thing? I’ve got myself a new board and been down the local skate park (Viccy park) and i remember why i loved it in the first place.
used to skate Nottingham, Arnold bowls, Lady Bay and Mansfield plaza (which was brand new then!)
went looking for the old sidewalk forum i used to lurk and ended up at this fine establishment. so any advice or tips to help me start looking cool in front of a barrage of kids on scooters?
