Those skills are worth bragging about. cool!

Me, after a few months of little riding due to winter weather, I've
been getting out again. My brag is that although I've lost some
endurance, my skills from last year are still intact. I know it's not
much of a brag, but I'm glad not to be losing ground.

this board!

Today I sideways wheelwalked one and a half revolutions, which is over
two metres on a 24".

Go Ivan!

Just a few days ago I did a fun little stunt:

I wheelwalked up a short yet super steep driveway, 1ft wheelwalked a
quick U-turn, and glided back down with my unused foot off the frame.
Very fun. The tough part is preventing shoe slippage on the way up.

Ooooh! And I can almost indefinitely seat drag in front. I even
fabricated a neat little polyethylene (cutting-board) block onto my
freestyle seat as not to kill the nice handle on the concrete.

Freestyle FTW!

OK so this isn't really an accomplishment but i had a spectacular UPD
this morning. I was going a fair clip when i hit a pothole, got thrown
from the uni, smacked my knee on the touring handle, ripped my pants,
and got a bit of road-rash on my shoulder from the roll. I walked back
to the uni and the handle was partially broke, my right petal now moves
a little bit on the spindle and my wheel was bent enough that it was
rubbing the breaks.

I trued the wheel on the side of the road then rode home a little bit
slower.

I guess the accomplishment could be: right before the UPD was the
fastest I have ever gone on a uni
