Three years is a long time not being able to jump off of my right leg very well. In May this year it will be the third anniversary of my knee injury. A complete rupture of the patellar tendon is no joke. It took a year of rehab before I felt comfortable skating and another year to feel mostly normal. But I still couldn’t jump. Three weeks ago I started a short bicycle commute and I think it’s doing wonders. Some weight loss but also knee strength. I noticed last night that I jumped off my board differently and just tried to jump up off the ground and got actual height. So I tried the flatland ollie and to my surprise I could do it. So I taped it for a couple of tries. I am stoked beyond measure to be able to do this again and at 44 getting tricks back is a slow process.
Check it out and go skate!
