    Backyard pools

    Discussion started by dirtroad - Aug 12, 2001

    I was lucky enough to find out about a pool that is only 40 minutes away. Today I finally got some directions and I went and skated it in the heat. It was worth it though. This pool was super nice, a right hand kidney with a love seat. It was about 9 or 10 feet with a 3 foot shallow end. Just thought I'd share my luck with the few other pool skaters out there.

    i'm sketchy at skating pools. i did manage to find a really nice pool 5 minutes from my house that was so secluded no one would ever know. my own private pool. it's about 10 on the deep end, 10 wide and about 20 long and transitions are drawn out so they're alittle easier but, it's rather nice. took two weekends of shuvelling shit out of it and scrubbing to get the dirt out of the bottom. it was well worth it. put sheet metel over the drain. i hope it doesn't get fucked and filled with crap again. oh yeah. it's 4 at the shallow

    Your description of your pool is very similar to the one I went and skated.. except that the coping sticks out pretty far. I tried to get up to a backside grind on it in the deepend but that shit was freaky. Best trick so far by me was a rocknroll on the love seat, and a backside grind. Carving is satisfaction all in it's self.

    nothing compares to skating pools. actually i usually only end up skating every few months when a pool or a new ramp or park comes around. i'm not that good at pools. the best tricks i have is grinds and i can roll in on some. falling in a pool is no joke though.
