I’ve been watching Neil progress over the past year or so. I’ve seen him go from tentatively carving a four foot bowl to hitting the coping in the deep end of this eight foot monster. He said to me that it’s all about getting little wins each you skate, pushing yourself just a little bit harder, getting out of your comfort zone. It’s not necessarily about learning some epic new trick at every session, it’s about walking away with something more than you started with. It could be as simple as getting your grinds a little smoother, getting your frontside Indy airs a little higher, or dropping in from a new height. It’s about goals and challenging yourself, a lesson I’ve been trying to apply to my own skating as well as other aspects of my life. Thanks Neil.
