We have got some exciting news for our local skate community here in San Diego. Most of you have probably heard about the world class skate park is being built in the valley of our very on Linda Vista. The park was designed by Site Design Group from Carlsbad, CA and will be 35,000 square feet of skate heaven once the park is completed. Located at San Diego Recreation Centers 7064 Levant St. San Diego, CA 92111.
What Makes it Epic
The park will be equipped with a competition sized vert bowl, massive street zone, snaking ditch run, transition snake run, flow bowl, and signature full pipe. The coolest thing about the park is that all of these features are weaved into the natural terrain and landscape it was built on.
Why it’s Great for The Community
The park also doesn’t obstruct pedestrians or create any obstacles, because they have built a pedestrian bridge directly above the skate park that spans over the width of the park. This will be San Diego’s largest skate park and in 7 short months the park will open on August 15th. Until then, we can all live vicariously through the “Sims” like people in these photos!
VL skate outlines the five mistakes beginners make when trying to land new tricks and how to avoid them! The first two are not fully learning the trick and moving on too fast. These two go hand in hand! Muscle memory is the most important thing when getting a new move down. You can try it 100 times and land it 20 times out of that but without creating the proper muscle memory, you won’t be able to retain the trick. The third mistake outlined in this video is losing motivation. It can be discouraging to try something over and over again and not get it, but you can always move onto a different trick and come back to the one you are stuck on another day! The fourth mistake is getting burnt out. If you feel yourself getting tired or frustrated-take a break! The fifth mistake is comparing yourself to others. The only person you should compare progress with is yourself!
You have probably heard of Aaron Kyro, professional skater and Youtube Star. He is known for his Youtube Channel called Braille Skateboarding, where he has many tutorials and skate videos based of his own self-taught methods. In this video above, Aaron helps you build a solid foundation for all of your skating and fundamental tricks. He covers turning, stopping, and everything in between. These are the fundamentals Aaron goes over before diving into the most common tricks-ollies, frontside 180’s, backside 180’s, pop shove it’s, front shove its, heelflips and kickflips. Stick with Aaron and his strategical order of learning the art of skating, and you will go far! Or at least, improve.
