Hey guys, so today I've been having what I call an off day. My stem slipped for the first time and I ate shit 3 times today. I don't know what it is but every once in a while I have days where I wanna ride but it seems that everything around me doesn't want me to ride or something like that. So I'm curious, do you guys ever have days where it seems like the world doesn't want you to ride?

I think we all do once in a while. Falling is normal, but I do have those days where my mind ain't quite right or my body says no. But it happens. Eat right, sleep right, keep your ride tuned and look forward.

Yup, all the time. Some days i can't do shit and when i finally land something it feels like garbage. Others i feel smooth and everything just seems to work out. Sometimes it's like a trade off too, i'll be able to manual amazing one day but wont be able to grind worth a damn.

Call it a day while you still can before you get hurt!

I should really take my own advice sometimes lol.

I tend to have off days with new tricks. Recently barspins have been kicking my ass. I can do them, but after getting a gut full of barend, a black and blue set of knees, and sometimes when i 360 my feet just wont stay on. I usually just chill out and dont try stuff so much those days, just kinda flow around and try to be smooth and do stuff i know i can do. haha
And oh gosh Stocksy! I hope you dont have that understeer problem killing you! haha be careful! turn gently! lol

Haha no my few wipe outs today weren't from my lack of turning skill, it was just being off balance and not having my feet in the right position going off of a ledge and then jumping into slippery grass.

here's a tip. who cares? fuck the indian giver is garbage crap. it's still a successful turnout. be happy you can turnout and not bummed it's the "wrong" way. there is no right or wrong in bmx. it's called freestyle for a reason

Nah dude, im the KING of indian givers! haha I openly embrace them, especially if you slider out! they can actually look good if you want! I do! lol you ever do an oppo 180 then already know how to turn out the clean way? its cool, trust me. And dont get my wrong i can turn out whatever way i feel! But what i do is if my weight is to the side id turn out indian, and if i wanna turn out (the right way) i have my weight on the other side. Just keep balance Sickdude, and focus on the turn of your head more.
