Yesterday I went up to a skatepark around Pittsburgh called B-Cubed. It was the first skatepark I have ever been to, and it was freakin' awesome!
When we first got there I just kind of carved a 6ft. quarter and part of a box jump. Then I started rolling the box jumps and before I knew it I was getting about a foot or two of air off of them. After that I started doing the three funboxes. I was able to clear all of them except for the biggest one, but I was clearing it with my front wheel. Once the skateboarders left I got a chance to do the bowl. Let me just say I hated it. It had a crappy tranny and it was way too small. Once I got done with that one of my friends found a new line: come off of the 6ft. roll in and then hit the box jumps. I did that a couple of times until I almost went off the side of the first box.
Pretty soon, it was just me, my two friends, and two skaters. We pretty much had B-Cubed to oursleves. I then tried to manual the medium sized funbox. After about 10 tries I finally got it. Then it was time for the 4ft. mini. I just carved for a few minutes until I did my first fly out. Then I tried to drop in but I wrecked because I didn't have my weight into the tranny. I attempted to drop in again, and I did it fine. Finally, I went over to the 10ft. vert. I carved for a long time and I finally got the guts to fly out. I was going to drop in, but it was closing time, so I left (in one piece thankfully).
Thanks for reading my story and feel free to share your own first-time skatepark experiences.
