Okay, it was only a 3' mini half pipe, but I was pulling off frontside layback airs today.  I've tried them on the ramp the last two times I've been there and finally pulled them off tonight.  I can't wait to get to a park to try them on something a little bigger.

When I skated 25 years back, they were one of the limited items on my trick list so it was fun to pull one off after being back skating for the last 9 months.

I'm 40 and in better shape than I've been for 10 years.  Man I'm loving this.

Pads?  I'm the padmaster.  I didn't give myself the steroidal boody w/ the hip and tailbone pads I have because I was only on a 3' mini but I always play the age card and shamelessly wear my pads.  Full pads make skating more fun for me and help me go for it a bit more.

 

I'll be wearing the hip pads when I move this to a park w/ bigger walls.

About photos, I'm trying to work out hitting Glendale this Thurs in the evening (around 6) and I'll try to remember to bring my camera and then try to figure out how to insert pictures into a thread.

Was able to pull off a few this morn at a small crete park on some slightly taller walls 4-5 ft.  They were a little harder primarily because the tranny was too mellow so it was hard to stay in.  right before I left I was able to pull off an invert w/ my hand on the coping in this section where the top got a little steeper.

Still hoping to hit Glendale tomorrow night to see how it works out on some slightly bigger walls and closer to vert.  Fun, fun fun.
