Winter Flatground in a Food Distribution Warehouse - a web-gnar training facility

in SkateHive2 months ago (edited)

As winter surges, the ability to skate outside becomes scarce.
Web-gnar finds a pseudo skate-sanctum in the warehouse of his part time job.
A food distribution warehouse, where his job consists of stacking cases of beverages and snack foods onto wood pallets to be loaded into box trucks and delivered to vendors of the Chicagoland area.
Like a game of tetris, boxes must be stacked to omit as much empty space as possible.


This can lead to interesting arrangements of boxes.


Unlike Tetris, when you complete a layer of boxes flawlessly, that layer does not disappear.


My work here at Norman distribution will be remembered forever, and one day they will cast my stacked 90's in bronze as a tribute.

But all that being said, I got some skating in, setting up the camera and trying to get the legs back.

My edit is short, but my legs are sore as can be from that switch tre.

That trick took me 35 minutes to land, and i had to punch out at the end of the day to finish filming the trick.

Being able to skate at the warehouse where i work, and most of the time being able to skate On The Clock, is really nice. its mind numbing work, but being able to step on a board is a super luxury for me.

And all the dudes are cool there, for the most part.

yeah, the one flip trick i am missing in my edit is a hardflip.
But man these tricks were actually really hard to land.
IDK if it was because i had to film these sneaky and i was stressed out or what but I am really rusty and I gotta keep skating this winter if I want to crush it this next summer.

It really makes a difference. Last winter I made a whole part skating in my studio and the summer after I was on POINT!:
Proof of Stoke
so i gotta make the effort like a real athlete to stay in shape this year.

and im going to drag you along with me @gnarip12345!

We did one a few years ago and it was freaking dope! Maybe we can do one more?!? That would be fun hehehe!

Your style in these reminds me of Gino Iannucci, Jason Lee, or old-school Rick Howard when he was crushing it.
