Default Introduction

Hi SkateLog Riders !

I'm Alex, 33 years old from Bordeaux (SW of France), father of a 6years old princess. I started skating on the 23rd March 2013 on Remz HR 1.2, my first and only skate atm (FLT2 and currently UC Art Line Jeff Howard). At the moment, I'm mostly focused on halfpipe in most of the awesome skateparks we have around. Skating is the first sport I'm doing since 13 years (started to work early), more than 15hrs each weeks and I can say that I'm a total addict, I came to the sport after failing to comply to our local ice hockey qualification for playing with amateurs veteran. I quit smoking about 6 month ago, had a few injuries and broken bones but working hard now to get better shape and condition for longer sessions.

I'm doing a few halfpipe tricks :
  • Drop in (Micro/Mini/Medium Rampe/Bowl)
  • Frontside stall
  • 180
  • Handplant
  • Soul Stall
  • Acid Stall
  • Pornstar Stall
  • Frontside Grind
  • Fakie to Soul Stall
  • Fakie to Acid Stall

And I'm currently working on :
  • Soul/Acid Grinds
  • Backside Grind

I don't have any mini amateur edit yet, but gathering material to make one

See you soon !

Alex

Hell yeah! That's really cool to hear. I hope I inspire a lot of people to get them boots on and go blade!

You'll be needing a camcorder!
