A new vid of me
« on: May 06, 2012, 12:03:34 PM »
Haven't got time to make much video's lately (two kids a wive and work are very timeconsuming ;-) ) but I had a week holiday last week so decided to put something together with footage I shot of a little session I did on Queensday, Holland's national holliday. Usually a day everybody get's loaded but having the above mentioned timeconsumers that wasn't an option.

Cool video, went through Amsredam a few years back on Queens day, it was madness.

Thanks.

Yes,especially Amsterdam is party 24/7 on queensday.

About the playground, the playground is near a school for kids with special needs who come from all around the city. The neighbourhood around the playground don't have a lot of little kids, so most of the time this playground isn't used much (apart from me and some youngsters who train with me)

Thanks Anarkyman, still working on them but it's coming. If you persist and take your time I'm convinced anyone can learn them. Being a bit older is kinda drawback with these because of thinking to much and seeing to many risks but it can be overcome like any obstacle.
I'm training hard now for the urbanathlon in Amsterdam so more endurance training but flips are fun.

Yah, good idea on practicing the flips there. I might start doing that at the playground I'm starting to go to but they got mulch instead of sand grr. I like that idea of walking ontop of the bars, I can put that into practice also.
