Frontside Disaster

Frontside 50-50

I got a frontside 50-50 on the bowl today. I’ve been doing the frontside 5-0 to tail quite a bit but stillĀ  haven’t really liked the idea of of dropping in frontside from a 50-50.

Frontside shuv-it

Tried a frontside pop shuv-it today. Managed it after a couple of tries. I remember I used to be able to pop them pretty high back in the day.

Heelflip

Got my first heelflip back today. I did two stationary ones. I find I over spin heelflips a lot more than I do with kickflips. Maybe I could try a double :)

Backside 5-0 to tail

Got one of these on the bowl at the park today. Pretty happy about it. Was one of my favorite mini ramp tricks back in the day. I used to revert out of them but the through of reverting on my bad ankle is a bit much for now.
