I started doing rock-n-rolls in pools around New Years Day. I stand up too much, slide down the wall, almost die and bail about eight out of ten attempted. Saturday, Lance and Salba were riding with me. Lance leaned over and said - “Stay closer to the wall and inside the pool. Turn as you approach the lip…” Salba told me to approach the coping straight on. I did just what they said and it clicked. I did a few and the next day Brian Fick took this image. I am happy. I find it interesting that I can still learn at 48 years old. I feel like I’ve accomplished something. I’ve always wanted to do rock-n-rolls in backyard pools. I can die happy. Thanks Lance. Thanks Salba. Thanks to Brian Fick for the image. Skate and learn something. - Ozzie
