    Interests besides surfing revisited

    tagging onto the reading philosophy I've been on a Ryan Holiday run lately: The Daily Stoic - The obstacle is the way - ego is the enemy - just started stillness is the key Seems to fit where I am currently as a teacher and coach

    I'm using CX Trucks on a pool king stinger deck that's 10 inches wide. I've never had wheel bite. Mostly use this for park transitions and bowls. At my age I'm not pushing to hard so maybe that's why I haven't had any issues. Ride em if ya got em! Have fun!

    Chilly - I don't drop in to either bowl, just try to build speed as I pump/carve. I have been to Lansdale but never got in the pool, it was packed with people the day I went I have to get back and jump in for a go. It seems like its a much more user friendly set up than the bowls in roslyn...

    the pic is from the Patrick Kerr skatepark in roslyn/abington. Its fun. The smaller bowl is very tight. Feel like they tried to do too much in a tight space. Can't complain as its minutes from home and At my age I'm staying well below the coping and just trying to get thru sessions without...
