Cool picture. I'm not quite sure what I'm seeing though...

Handstand? Falling from handstand? Kicking up into a handstand? A picture to give the illusion of a handstand ;)?

same,   it seems much more like you're trying to make ppl think you did a handstand there rather than you actually can hold one.

I see what you guys are saying, but it's probably
just a late pic of me doing it.

1.  I always bend my legs when hand standing

2.  If I couldn't hold it out, would I really try something like this? :D

You have already made the decision, you will just spend the rest of your life figuring out why.

Um, nice? Maybe you should get a better controlled handstand before doing it randomly on roofs, and btw age isn't as much of a difference as you think, I know a ten year old who can do one handed handstands, round-off backhandspring double fulls etc. Theres a major difference in skill between someone dedicated to the sport, and someone just trying to look cool. No offense but just about anyone could replicate that attempt with no training, and yet you are "only 13".
Sorry to be rude but there's a lot more to this discipline than attempting to show off.
A state of mind when you are performing a physical movement that is neither too simple or too complex. Your focus rules out all other mental processes, your mind has no time for words, worries, or distractions. There is only timing, spatial awareness, and the feeling of satisfaction as you land

OMG!! Your like so cool for doing that and yet your only 13!!!!

That was the kind of response you were looking for. But this is the response your going to get.

Anyone can do a sloppy handstand on pavilion roof. Its not impressive regardless of age. Im sorry if you didn't do it on purpose, but your title makes it seem like you only have the intention of showing off. And that will earn you no respect around here.

yea, honestly I think many many more 13 year olds can do handstands than 20 year olds. You havn't had as much time to get fat or destroy your body yet. And most 13 year olds are active, spending their free time out of school outside riding bikes around and playing sports. 20 year olds get wasted and smoke cigarettes and weed and eat fat sandwiches.. and even play video games too! Obviously that's a major generalization, I'm just saying you're not gonna find too many 13 years old smoking and drinkin everyday.

So embrace your youth and train well. Consider yourself lucky, you're starting with a clean slate. Many older traceurs have to first overcome all the damage they've done to their bodies previously.
