Electric Unicycling Trick Practice Sessions – Boxes and Slopes

Another short film from some recent practice sessions focusing on boxes and slopes.

Electric Unicycling Tricks Session @ Bromley Skatepark

The week’s video comes from Bromley skate park in South London.
In the last week I have worked to get my 180 shove-it consistency to greater than 80% so decided to use this early morning visit to try and take the trick to the slopes. The ramps at this facility have a “skate-lite” surface which are rather slippery when using an EUC, although still great fun.

Ninebot One EUC Trick Practice – 180 Shove-its

Another session from South Norwood recreation ground in South London. Mostly working on improving the consistency of my 180 shove-its which are much less painful to practice since investing in some ankle and shin guards!

A short video of a typical EUC practice session in my local park. Sessions last approximately one and a half hours  (I.e the battery life) and involve  cone practice, spinning practice, slope/ramp riding and flatland trick practice.

Electric Unicycling @ Bloblands (Norwood Park) Skatepark

This morning I headed out early to ride at Bloblands Skatepark in Norwood Park. Norwood Park occupies the side of Salter’s Hill and on a clear day has fantastic views out over the city of London. The skatepark is a rather unusual creation – it looks to be a mixture of DIY as well as professionally cast concrete elements. It’s good fun to ride. At the bottom of the park there is a full sized tarmac football pitch which is a great place to practice “step off-step on” tricks.

Electric Unicycling Tricks @ Stockwell (Brixton Bowls) Skatepark

A quick video of a few electric unicycle tricks from Stockwell (aka Brixton Bowls) Skate park in South London. This historically significant skate park is great fun on an electric unicycle although it’s best to visit at silly o’clock in the morning at the weekend if you want to avoid the crowds.

Electric Unicycling at Cantelowes Skatepark

Today I headed down to Cantelowes Skatepark with my Ninebot One electric unicycle.

Electric Unicycling at Bromley Skatepark

Today I headed down to Bromley Skatepark in South London. This facility is just inside a lovely park and is good fun with an electric unicycle, although the metal and wooden ramps get very slippery with even a few drops of rain.

Electric Unicycling at Pollards Hill Skatepark

Today I headed out to Pollards Hill skate park near Norbury and Mitcham in South London. After taking the train to Norbury it took me some time to find and reach the skate park which is situated in a field below Pollards Hill. Pollards Hill affords great views over South London and hosts a Triangulation point.

This skate facility is perfect for electric unicycling with a good selection of ramps, slopes, ledges and transitions, although the park in which it was located was very poorly maintained.

I took  a couple of my latest flatland tricks to the slopes with good results (step-off-step-on to fakie, and double and triple slope spins).

Later on in the day I grabbed half an hour down at Wandle Park in Croydon to film a raised wall roll.
