Well, after a short lived retirement from skateboarding, I think I'm going to come back. The knee and leg is still shot to hell, but I am going to use my winter to do some training and fix my knee up good. Any words of encouragement or advice??

My favorite type of slalom is either flat, or very very mellow incline, S-curve 6 foot between cones. Very rhythmic and very groovy.

Ive only been slaloming for almost a year, and I love it. I only with i started earlier.
