Heath Kirchart #9.

No refund.

I always liked the thumbs up photo.

I've been skateboarding a lot lately, but I've been skating like crap. It's kind of a bummer. I was sort of doing OK for me up until this last week. I set up a new board and it was good for a day until I realized my shoes were done. Now I'm breaking in a new pair of kicks so it's going to take a little bit before things feel right. Tricks don't seem possible that I used to be able to do easily. I'm talking simple stuff, too. I know it's more mental than anything plus wear and tear from work. The office has been similar to final exam time at college for the last two months so my brain is fried. Work has calmed down now so I'm finally starting to unwind. I guess this is what happens when you get older.

I feel ya, I just set up a new deck (Billy Marks) and can't get used to it, tail feels weird and my simple go-to small ledge tricks (50-50's and FS noseslides) have gone the way of the dodo. But I'm old so I just say "three more tries", see what happens and either land it or go home for a beer as its been crazy humid here the last two weeks. oh yeah what shoes?

Another pair of Huf 2s. I forgot they took forever to break in and then they were awesome until the soles got holes in them. They also broke in really weird, like they wouldn't grip right and my feet would float around on ollies. Some tricks are feeling good, others not. Things are getting better.
