My mom wouldn't watch me jump the wood ramps we built in the street that much. I don't blame her! When she would we were jumping like 5 feet up and 20 feet out...on bmx bikes. Never rode ramps much but love the dirt.
My mom thought we would all be in the Olympic's for something or another sport?? None of us were that talented though? I had to take every kinda sport, exercise class, trampoline, gymnastics, we only wanted to ride dirt bikes and stuff. But, she wouldn't leave us alone. The first time she saw my brother do a trick, she flipped out! I bought my son a $800 Freestyle bike and motobike and whatever, his dad would buy him anything! I didn't even think of danger, I must be a bad mother?
I never had the skills to do any of this kinda stuff??? I WISHED? MY son's do and their friends could do tricks that boggle the mind. Over here where I live they still chase kids for skateboarding on the streets. They build the parks then the stake 'em out and wait until they are leaving to harrass them?? Go figure!
