Charlies bmx beginning
Tim contacted me for a coaching session for his 13yr old son Charlie.
Charlie has a local skatepark but wanted to learn the basics of park riding.
Along with Mark Atkins, we worked on carving the ramps, riding out and dropping in.
We applied these techniques on various ramps, beginning small, spread through out the park. Charlie hadn't ridden a bowl before but in a short while he was pumping figure eights around it and riding out too.
We rode the street section too working on park etiquette and linking ramps together. After 3.5hrs Charlie had reached physical tiredness and we ended our session with him smiling like a Cheshire cat.
high 5 Charlie.
