Hey man, thx for the response and much respect to your return. It is also extremely encouraging to see your experience being a positive one.

 As you may have guessed, I was a bit ambitious and ended up having to tone it down..which was not a choice. Ironic part is I suffered my worst injury, yet I can't tell you how it exactly happened! I stubbed my front foots big toe bad just while cruising.  I guess I hit a rock or something? dunno.  Had to get the heating pad out for that one. I only missed a few days from it but couldn't attempt a toe-side flip for over a week.

Nonetheless, I am exactly 6 weeks in and I am surprisingly doing better than I ever thought I would.  My thing was I immediately had great pop and learned basic flip tricks fairly quick (had my 1st kickflip after 3 days in the beginning when I was going real hard) but I had no sense of balance or center of gravity. While my toe was bruised up, I focused hard on finding that. For about a week, all I did was cruise, manual, and I bought this awesome 90's balance board from a little east coast shop off craigslist.  After that Im starting to feel a lot more comfortable and more consistent in general on the board. 

I've most recently landed some fairly decent b/s flips and b/s cab flips.  I have noticed I am very comfortable doing tricks fakie. For example I can fakie 360 flip on occasion, and getting the flick is not much trouble at all.  However, I have yet to land even a single regular 3 flip ever.
Anyway, as my 'break' comes to an end, I am going to try and take video inventory of everything I was able to learn. Also, a friend of mine is going to record me doing the flatland tricks I have learned. I was going to try and record it myself in a little garage space, but I realized that's super lame because you are forced to do the tricks almost stationary.
