So today is our last day in New York. Super bummer, we have definitely had a blast. We skated a spot in Brooklyn we had seen from the highway, didn’t quite turn out how we had hoped. After hopping some fences, we got two throwaway clips and I took a scary fall tripping on a crack before a launch. Fish’s body is aching hard from touring almost constantly since February. I think the two days off before the Straight Jacket Minnesota tour starts will treat all of our bodies nicely. We struggled through a few spots in Staten Island and called it a day. Time to get food, shower, pack up and head back home. The trip has been a little difficult but everyone has had a blast.
New York City is amazing and has a huge, thriving rollerblading scene. It is very motivating being here. Everyday, whether we are going to the bagel shop, skating a spot, or grabbing a $1 slice of pizza we have passed by a group of bladers. There are tons of little blader kids and plenty of old NYC legends still skating. Definitely stop through NYC when you get a chance, you won’t regret it.
