It has been several months since I have posted anything to the blog.Â I’ve been thinking a lot about the importance of setting goals and following through with them.
I set a goal in 2010 of landing a double cork.Â I had my single cork down really well and was able to do boxcutters, double fulls out of a cartwheel and double fulls out of a round-off.Â It was time to push my abilities and apply my double twists to my corkscrew.Â My very first weekend I attempted double cork I landed 3 but they were terrible and were probably cheated in some way.Â I didn’t film them since I didn’t expect to land them at all.Â Unfortunately After that initial weekend I was no longer able to land them anymore.Â I added them to my list of tricks to practice and I kept trying to improve them each and every time.Â Pretty soon I was able to land them fully rotated and then fully rotated and on my feet.Â By late 2010 I had landed it but not without briefly putting one hand down.
It would have been easy to stop there or back off but I didn’t.Â In December of 2010 I technically landed my first double cork but again my hand only barely missed touching the floor and it was off balance.Â I wanted to land it completely solid and I really wanted to land it with others at a large gathering.
In January 2011 I had a setback due to a fractured foot.Â I didn’t know it was fractured at first but knew something was wrong with it. After getting my walking boot off I just taped it up and continued to compete and trick but I was not able to really practice my double cork until a couple months later.
Finally at Loopkicks Camp 2011 it all came together and I landed what I considered a clean double cork.Â The feeling after months and months of practice is indescribable!!Â The icing on the cake was doing it in front of my friends and some of the most respected trickers in the world. (Check out the Video Here)
Sometimes when a goal takes a long time to accomplish it is difficult to see the daily progress.Â We have to break our goals down into smaller goals and take each step as a victory on our way to our ultimate goal.Â This is not an easy thing to always do but sometimes it is the only way.Â Keep dreaming and pushing your abilities and setting your goals and whatever you do… “NEVER GIVE UP!”

It’s the Monday after AKA Grand Nationals in Kentucky, and I had a great time. Â I came home with 3rds in traditional weapons and team sync, 2nd in creative weapons and 1sts in musical and creative forms. :D Â I am happy with how I placed. Â I got to see all of my friends from the circuit and Michael Guthrie (2nd person ever to triple cork), and my good friend I haven’t seen in three years.
Looking forward to the US OPEN coming up! Â Hope to see you all soon Â :)[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CumegwR9EM4[/youtube]
