Front flip. I keep hitting the knuckle and either falling onto my face or sitting down. Fun though.
Kinda annoying that its 2am. I’ve just really got into editing this snowboard video and its record store day tomorrow and I should really be getting up early so I can go buy some vinyl and see my brothers band play.
And then I should probably be awake for work although thats not really the main priority here.
It’s not fair that girl boarders don’t get that much press in the skateboard mags but when there’s an opportunity to get in in the mainstream then do this pile of crap instead.
Honestly its just bad journalism and kinda weird, I mean I know lots of skaters in their 20’s but honestly most skater boys are exactly that, boys.
Also this just encourages and even suggests all girls should sit about spectating instead of getting involved. I get enough of this shit from girls without the mainstream media putting it out there.
"Now you’re looking the skate part, it’s time to get on board. Not literally. Do not, we repeat, do not, attempt to mount a skateboard unless you are a professional. We tried it once, and it did not end well. If you feel like really blending in then, sure, bring along a deck, but it’s an accessory NOT a mode of transport."
That part made me want to track down the writer smash my accessory, sorry I meant skateboard, round their face. Or be sick. I don’t know.
Sorry about the swearing. Censor as you wish or improve. I kinda feel like this has killed my braincells. Also I’m kinda angry.
[addition by emily!]: Yeah I am in total agreement here and I’m happy to say that it appears, for once, that the people in the comments agree. I advise you to go comment and add your voice to those calling them out- we’re nearly six hundred strong, don’t forget that we can actually do a lot. Drown out their idiotic article with real female skateboarders and remind them why this shit ain’t ok.
Here’s a really shit quality photo of me. ‘Cause this jacket.
Wow my boots are fucked. Hope my new ones arrive in the week. Actually the outside doesn’t look that bad.
I am basically really enjoying backside spins onto the box right now. Scary to learn but now I’ve got it down. Just a few clips from tonight, I’m going to make a proper edit soon.
New trick I got down tonight. I’d never tried BS 180s onto a box before so I’m pretty happy with getting this and not landing on my face like I thought I would. Thinking 270 on next week.
