I had just finished wrapping up the Board meeting when Matt Moore asked me “Can you swing by my office for a second?” I figured there was a quick piece of business to attend to.
Instead, he gifted me with this longboard! One of the best gifts I have ever received. He is a long boarder himself. And certainly one of the most empathetic, thoughtful person. He had seen form my posts that I was trying to gain skills in skateboarding. We had talked about long boarding during many of my prior trips to SFO.
Today, I am a proud owner of one.
Matt was kind enough to suggest that he ship it out to me instead of lugging it thru the airport.
I can’t wait for it now to arrive in Atlanta and commence learning more skills!!
Went back to skateboarding park today. After a long time.
You know how they say that once you learn biking, you will never forget it? Well, you can add skateboarding to that. I was wondering if I would remember anything from last year. Turns out the balancing came with the first attempt itself. Picking up speed, on the other hand, still frightens me!!
Today nobody was there in the rink. Used the main area. Made quite a few mistakes while trying to increase speed. Fortunately did not fall down – came fairly close once though. Also tried mount-dismount motion (three times) in one roll. Not coming as naturally yet…
