Keep a diary of what you're hitting, what's frustrating you, and your goals.
so today was sweet... me and two shredding buddies had a nice 3 hour session in which my friend landed a double atw in shoes for the first time, and i totally locked my stepping clipper, and got a stepping butterfly a few times. also, i landed a smear just recently and i am working on the barfly, a very elusive four add move.

today i am going to drill my clippers, butterflys, stepping clippers, and attempt the whirl until my legs dont work anymore. oh, and the main event: tonight at my church, my youth pastor has organized a FIREHACK session in the parking lot. its gonna be sweet! haha our fire station is literally right across the street form our church, so no worries
so i jogged to my shred spot. drilled for a few minutes... then a couple of teenage girls (roughly my age) come y and sit down to watch like 40 feet away. they kept waving at me and smiling. sigh.... i was in my short shorts and had no shirt on. (im kinda skinny....embarrassing!) so i left soon after that. but i got my opp butterfly a few more times. and firehack tonight to look forward too!
hah, you should have stayed and talked to them! sounds like they were into the freestyle.calemccoy wrote:so i jogged to my shred spot. drilled for a few minutes... then a couple of teenage girls (roughly my age) come y and sit down to watch like 40 feet away. they kept waving at me and smiling. sigh.... i was in my short shorts and had no shirt on.

did alot of mods to my lavers today.... removed first two eyelets..... sharpied alittle..... and did a brocka cut that i finished over with some felt so it wouldnmt fray. ill post some pictures when i get back from worlds. hopefully the brocka will help my crank, it isnt very good. anyone suggest some stretchin exercises specifically for this problem? thanks
AWESOMEshred day today! i had two of my best footbag buddies over playin' what we call "SHRED"... like horse but for footbag. in this game, my friend hit osis>opp clipper>pickup>mirage! then, moments later, i hit a clipper>pickup>legover>mirage combo! these are tripless combos, right? someone let me know, just curious! and im going to worlds tomorrow..... so stoked.
ok..... back from worlds, which was awesome! i was so stoked to meet vasek and kenny.... wow. anyways, i got 2 josh raye 32's, and a footfighter. i am so content with these bags, and have been rapidly improving. i hit the whirl 6 times today!!! also, i hit a zulu clipper, and ss butterflys. today was an awesome day. also, while at worlds, i hit double atw for the first time barefoot, and then later in my lavers. my flipside is getting stronger everyday, and im getting pickups and legovers on both sides very strong. cheers!

Keep going dude. It was awesome when you hit the whirl in that parking lot. I'm still going for it, just not very often. I need to start drilling new tricks, and i think I might start working on the whirl on my flipside. I'm trying to do the learn new tricks on flipside first thing. Keep hacking dude. I'll see you on Friday for the Waterpark trip thingy, so cheers, and goodbye bill.

haha thanks eoghan, yeah, those midnight shred sessions in megashort shorts rule! oh, and now i have illusion locked in as well. i was looking for the blue leather lavers in size 14 all over the internet, and couldnt find ANYTHING. then, i go to the mall the next day and BOOM.... there they are. ill save on shipping too. so yeha, im getting them tomorrow. i liked the brocka mod on my current lavers, but ill probably keep the walls on these ones for training purposes. i found the best lacing technique yesterday... and ive found that i shred best in loosely tied lavers, and also if i have no socks on (although after a few days this leads to panful blisters... ouch plus almost everyone at worlds had kept their walls, so i dont want to feel weird anyone feel generous enough to post a link to a thread about spacers for stretching toe walls? thanks, and keep shreddin!
