FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator.

I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum

3rd slalom session:

front and back cross go pretty smooth now - back fish is working out nicely to. I do have trouble looking backwards.. i just sortof look trough my feet and go with my feeling of distance. (any tips there?)
started working on front snake with my wrong/left foot / omg the clumsyness !!!
also tried to tell my feet to do front cross with left foot leading... they simply refused to listen.
managed 1 foot slalom for 3 cones ^^.

Tried out the 80 cm.... fish and cross go ok if i brake a bit, but snake's a lot harder. If the wind didn't move my cones, my feet did .

When i get better at this... i'll put one cup with a few cents in it on the floor ... new street artist / tourist attraction

First: good work again
Second: try looking over your shoulder and turn your upperbody a bit, so you can see the cones.

rofl !!!

Here's a tought ... put up some loud music, do your thing and then your bf goes round with the hat.

Oh and don't forget to put on your skatelog t-shirt + pass out the cards.

Come to think of it, do the manufactures ever do promotion tours?
