I wish we were cool like the french and Calle them Gyros…
Here we go.
You may know me as being obsessed with esk8 from my journal thing.
I went on a sort of ebike tangent here with the spouse thread.
And I went off the deep end with Onewheels a long time after starting a thread kinda of like this one.
So what gives.
I am super set on boards to ride.
Most of the boards are running and are feeling great.
All kinds of flavors.
And both of the Onewheels are also awesome.
It’s amazing spring time and the weather is awesome.
So with all that it was time for something on my body to crap out.
And it’s kinda tricky this time.
My neck is jacked up.
I may have a bulging disc, and I show signs of degenerative disc disease, and I have pain on my neck and down my arm.
And as the universe would have it riding and facing the same direction increases the pain.
So this has put a super damper on my riding.
I’m not like totally out of commission. But I am not super epic riding like I would be if my body was cooperating.
So I’m taking Heavy duty NSAIDs and will be starting physical therapy.
But still may be a while to find comfort.
I wish I was out riding right now…
In my riding deprived depression one of the crazy ideas I came up with is getting an EUC so I can ride something that I ride facing forward.
That should on fact remove some of the discomfort I get riding.
I have been riding switch a lot.
It’s really hard for me on the boards. I go super slow.
It’s a bit easier on the Onewheels…
All this has me considering getting an EUC seriously for the first time.
I would like to hear from folks that have gotten into them too.
@longhairedboy you have had one for a long time right?
@Arzamenable you dabble?
@Evwan you just got one right?
Is it hard to learn?
Am I going to fuck myself up?
Am I going to negate any benefits to my neck the first time I eat it and get whiplash???
I am still riding a bit everyday, less, but still. So I am still out there taking the risk of riding.
But maybe. If I get a EUC I’ll get to riding more sooner…
