Could never kickflip, but could heelflip pretty well.

Opposite for me (maybe landed 3 kickflip clean ever, but had the rotation bit sorted, heel flips I just kinda booted the board out from under me)

These polls are about which ones you can do, not which ones are semi-impressive, right?

Correct

Could never get my feet moving quick enough for a kickflip. Really fancy getting back into skateboarding again.

Swim a length (25m) underwater

  • Yes
  • Yes, when I was younger, but not now
  • No

Ok at kickflips. Much better at pop shove-its

(I was always too scared to do this)

Can’t do any of these but am quite athletic. This is just a thread for semi-impressive feats of showing off!

I could do a first length underwater by diving as far as possible. Tried to claim that this counted but it doesn’t

There’s a small skatepark on Jesus Green in Cambridge. Next Fenino we’ll shred it up.
