I just got a catalyst 112 skate, and ive ridden it twice so far this season, ive found it to be pretty easy to get up on, and to do dock starts, etc. As of now i can do a few lipslides, small ollies, and pops of the wake. Im thinking about taking off my fins, and just working on lipslides, and some old school slides out side the wake. Its just a blast to ride around on, but very hard to do tricks, I just wanted to know how long it took you to do some of the harder tricks,(shov-its, w2w, etc) Also what are some of the best tricks you are landing now.

landed a few pop shuvits after I started working on them. Haven't got them consistent yet. I stuck one pop shuvit 360 at TSR about.. a week ago. Haven't been there for a while though, but every week my ollie gets a bit better, just have fun and also get the Snap dvd Razz

I would be landing consistant shuvits if I had access to a cable park. Behind the boat it takes too long and I only get 5 or so tries a week at it.

That's true, it's a huge advantage to be at a cablepark, especially on non-busy days. If I really get a load of energy on a good day I'd probably have at least 60 attempts before I go hungry, then an hour after that I'd go back and try some more pop - shuvits (bs, fs, bs360)
