Managed to have my first proper slam on the min-ramp at skateboarding the other night. Tried to roll back into the ramp going the opposite direction from usual, lost my balance, spent a few microseconds of bullet-time in mid air before thumping onto the wooden floor of the ramp. Ouch.

I’ve a nasty bruise / friction burn type thing on the bit of your right arm that you lean on when sleeping / playing games / using a computer keyboard / mouse / and it’s proving to be a pain in the ass. My right hip is pretty sore too, but I hope to be back in action this weekend for some practice if the weather is good.

Despite a bit of pain, it was good to get my first medium sized slam out of the way. Maybe it’s a rites-of-passage kind of thing and next week I’ll be that much better. :o)
