Wilson continues to excel in skateboarding, trying and failing and trying and succeeding. Each time we visit the skate park, which is once or twice a week, he improves. He continues building on the skills he’s developing, even when it means pushing through the pain of a hard fall.
Here’s a video of Wilson learning to drop into the skate bowl. This isn’t something I can show him how to do, only explain how I think it should be done, stomping on the front of the board to fully commit to the drop. He had to build up the courage to give it a shot.
As you can see, he was injured in his first attempt, but after about two minutes, he tried again and fell again. A minute later, he tried a third time, and he nailed it. Now he’s able to drop in on any ramp in the skate park, which has opened new possibilities for him to try new tricks.
