Pairs Shenanigans

Every time I skate with my pairs partner, it is an adventure. We never know what kind of trouble we are going to stir up and what new bruises or wounds we will end up taking home with us.

On this particular day, we were trying to practice an alligator-style pairs camel spin. Needless to say, it didn’t quite go as planned. We couldn’t get into the right position, so we weren’t balanced. My partner lost his footing and ended up tripping on my blade. He took a hard fall, and our friends that we in the lobby told us afterwards that they thought my partner had seriously injured himself. He did land on his spine, so there’s that.

Watch the video to the end. I added a little leg move towards the end of the video. Don’t worry, my blade never got near him, even though it appears otherwise.

Yup, this spin is going to be a beast to learn. Anybody know a chiropractor on call?
