This morning I took some advice from Jon and didn't do tons of ollies at the start. I got right into my line. This gave me more time to work on it. I did: ollie, 180, fakie oliie, and a shuv-it! It was slow and loser looking - but the more I do it the easier it will be and the faster it will get.
I finished with some kick flips - not landing them yet - too scared.. and they weren't working as well today as they were the last few times.
Time was up- off to the beach to frolic with my boy in water while Jon had his go - it didn't go well for Jonny. He had about five good tries before he hurt his leg a bit. Hopefully, he will feel better enough to land his trick before we leave.
