yeah dude tell me about it.
i broke my wrist, now i bugg out about like falling and catching myself...or like i dunno, just anything.
i wish i would have fucked up my wrist instead of my ankle, cause you can skate with a fucked up wrist, but i still can't really skate right with my ankle.

sometimes after like a month or two long break you come back and some tricks are so much more comfortable than the last time you skated. pretty strange. sometimes.
that always happens to me but i get into diffrent kicks like ill skate alot for two months then not skate for like two weeks haha its very strange
yeah haha, just way easier to get the flip in there with the pop shove too. then i forgot how to do varial flips. and it took me fucking forever to re learn them haha
On topic of heel before kick/kick before heel,did anybody push mongo when they 1st started or is it just me, and whats eveyones opinion on mongo? i feel like it dont matter if your nailing tricks. i personally dont push mongo anymore but never had a problem when i did
i started mongo super hard but i looked at how gay it looked so i stoped haha
I push mongo when I'm switch.
I used to push mongo when I started, but then broke the habit fast after everybody told me how lame it was. Set up time and everything for tricks sucks, especially if you don't have a lot of room to get your footing right before hitting whatever it is you're going for. And it looks stupid. I mean, I'm not really big into that whole image thing with skateboarding, that you gotta look good to actually skate good, but with mongo, it just looks really bad. The kids that just bought their first World Industries complete set up and rock the skate parks, snaking everybody on every obstacle all day long push mongo. That's usually how it goes.
I have no problem with pushing mongo when you're switch, because that's different. If you're skating switch, that's like skating 2x as hard as you normally would, so if pushing mongo makes it easier when you're switch, then do it.
That's just my two cents on the whole "mongo" thing.
but watch it on video and you see how much of a dork you look like! :P
i used to push mongo but then my friend was like "dont push mongo it looks hella gay" so i just stopped.... it only took like a week
every time i see the little kids at my local park pushing mongo, i do everything i can to make them stop doing it, thus preventing them from essentially ruining their entire lives. it's just not right.
Haha, I mean mongo looks wack, but if thats how ya gotta skate, get it done.
But anyway, I got heels down before kicks too...but I cant even do heels anymore.
i did something like that, and it worked pretty good. whenever i'd skate my friend's miniramp, or any vert for that matter, i would force myself to learn all of my ramp tricks switch. after a few weeks, i could do pretty much anything switch that i was doing regular. as for street, that's another story...
