Default 1080 launch

So lately I've been trying out this new, crappy, walmart bought, ahrd palstic, 1080 launch I got when I was 7 - I am now 15.

Believe it or not - the thing is great. I mean, I can;t go up it yet, it was to slippery, but going down it was fun - admittingly into grass - and I fell alot a few tiomes, so I think it was okay.

So, I also wanted to include ehre soem tips I have found useful - If you can, when tryiong out new things, like 180s or 360s, PRACTICE AT HOME, if you can - and stand in grass, and then do the 180, or whatever, onto the cement until you can do it fine.After awhile will come a natural confidence, and you can start doing it from cement to cement - then you can try skating faster and doing a 180, etc. Just keep at it.

Anyone else experimenting with launches and "kick boxes" lately?

EDIT: Now to include and crappy photo from a stopre website.. why do they always have to have people using it in the ad?

Nice, any tips for going up? As I get towards the top, I can never seem to get over it. But going down on it is very fun and easy.

my friend had one. To get off it, u just gotta get enough speed. Like a kicker. And, the problem I have is that I get too much speed, and when I hit the ramp, it moves! So, if u wanna use it, brace it against a crack in the sidewalk and go full speed.

my friend had a damaged sidewalk, so it was good for bracing ramps, but I got a scar on my shoulder from when I tripped over a crack. Cool scar though.
