Well, I did the monkey plant! I tried to then turn before I pushed off and I couldnt even get my hands up on the coping then. I didn lots of hip plants, splat lol. Do I need more speed or what? I am flexible, but I guess I should be turning from my hips more then my shoulders? I'm not sure...... But I plan on getting this down in 2 months!!

I guess this is a hard move cause the skateboarders cant do it. But I think for them its harder.

Excuse me, i used to go in and back out until i learned to pump and carve. which is what i was doing on the first two pics. I go round a couple of times, stall, go round a couple more times, then exit. That's a very tight 10'/7' panda bowl.
For power, I depend a lot on the initial drop in and pump/air on the hip, then its a lot of the slalom move, crossovers, pumping, and more air.

i live for bowls and verts. my inlines are perfect for it too. i don't understand your comment.

Dave, I think you are mistaking my post and taking it personally. Dont worry, you are doing great! But if you take a person of the same level with trucks versus blades which dont have trucks, there is no comparison in carving potential. Then again, you can grind easier, drop in easier cause your for-aft balance is much easier, get bigger airs. Choose your equipment based upon what is the main goal. I like to carve first and foremost. Trucks are best for that. You can grind up a storm. If you wanted to go fast, you would need speed inlines, aggressive inlines are too slow for that, etc. understand? Not that you cant carve at all, but you dont have trucks and trucks are made to carve. Thats all....... Show me the video of you riding around the bowl on the lip sideways like the skateboarders do then. They will be able to do it easier, its cause of the trucks. You will make mostly large arcs. I'm sure one day I will be able to jump and grind a rail, but cause of my trucks and wide wheels base, that will be much harder for me. Understand now? I have yet to see an inliner carve like a skateboarder or rollerskater. I dont see inliners doing sidestance either! That would be really hard.

If I had inlines, I wouldnt be able to carve either but I'm sure I could jump some rails.

A lot of inliners have a harder time carving due to anti-rocker or freestyle setups. Much easier with flat. I've seen inliners carve very smoothly. They were probably cone skaters before discovering aggressive!!!

That's why I gave all my nylon anti rocker's away. Freestyle or anti rocker setup don't work for me at all in the bowls. I can't do that slalom move or turn while stuck to the side of the wall.

I'll get videos of me flowing around that panda bowl when the snow clears up here. And plus, while I can go around a couple of times, the effortless part hasn't come to me yet. I can flow around about 4 times tops before my gasping azz has to come up for air.

But it is getting easier.

And RD, no offense taken.

Yeah, I want to see some vids! No blader goes into the bowl where I skate. Maybe in and out. I couldnt do it on blades. But if you do, do sidestance I will pee in my pants lol. But I skate with my skates cause they are FUN. If I were really into performance, I would get speed inlines for speed, aggro inlines to grind, etc. I just like the way my trucks feel. Sorry if I ruffled your feathers. Too much work/school, trying to skate, too little sleep lol.

Naw, hell na. No ruffles here! It's just taken a long time to get any semblance of it down, I was just proud, as in... ahem! Lookie here! LOL

Sry if I came off as upset. Big hug!

This discourse made me remember this one dude who hits the parks every now and then, he has a pair of totally worn out xsjado's with the freestyle mook frames, and the guy is every bit as good as a lot of the pro's I see in the vids. The guy drops in the 10' backwards, (jumps in that is) and rides around to the 11' oververt and hand plants that mf.

He can actually carve that wooden bowl at ULS fakie. I thought it looked awful tough, and commented on it. He said he'd just learned it that day and was stoked as hell.

After all this talk and my new found panda bowl routine, I realize now why he was so excited. I'll get vids of him next time I'm out there and I see him. The dude will blow your mind. He rips around the entire round area backward, doing that backward slalom stroke real fast, and after 3 or 4 passes, he rides up a coping, all fakie, and then just drops back in forward, body attitude (position) never changing. Arms at his side, like "hmm dee dum, nothing special here, just a little upside down backward skating up in the air..."

(Dangit Fablemaker, that's been stuck in my head now ever since you told me to 180 out like that....LOL)

Yeah, that's what I'm talkin' about. I'm not confident enought to do an entire bowl fakie, but I'm working on it.

When I say "an entire bowl", by the way, I mean hitting every corner, hip, pocket, lip, etc., from all directions. I make a point of trying not to do the same thing more than twice during a run....ooops, I'm coming straight up to the deep end again...what now?....okay I'll manual up it, or I'll alleyoop it instead, or I'll go up and try to cess down it....you get the idea....

This is my way of getting comfortable with any angle, any situation, and being able to make quick decisions in the middle of a trick.

I will have to see this summer/spring if I can carve. Last summer I did what I would call carving in a around a skate park in SLC. I just basically rode the entire park on the bowls never going over any lips. It is a LOT of fun and I can do it wicked fast. I am also learning to carve on one leg this winter at the rink. Will be harder on aggros vs slalom setup, but intend to do a LOT more one leg stuff on ramps.
