Ages?

Post by Pro In Training » 29 Jun 2005 17:26

Just wondering how old everyone is and how long they've been practicing up 'till this point. Also wondering their a.d.d. ranges.

I'm about 15 and have been practicing for a little under a year. My a.d.d. range is around 2-3 a.d.d.'s maybe.

No, I meant a.d.d. range as in "trick point" range.

Add isn't an acronym. It's just adds.

I'm 18 and have been freestyling for a year and a half this past Monday. My add range is 0 - 7. Of course normally I hit 3 - 5 in my runs.

actually i'm under the impression that it is an acronym, it stands for additional degree of dificulty. it's just that everybody says add because it's so much easier that you never hear the full thing

I am 20.

Add range - well it depends on what I'm doing. Sometimes - especially if I'm drilling a particalur move - say quantum sets - it might be between 1 and 2 (quantum set toe>repeat) othertimes it might be all 5s or 4s and 5s.

I really don't let adds effect my game very much unless I'm trying to hit a specific add based combo - like beat my tripless record or whatever. I guess in a circle with some players who were going hard I'd focus on going genuine so 3s to 6s.

I'm 18 and I've played since 2000 and my add range is 1-4 usually. Maybe I should work on getting an easy 5 for myself. Oh well!

I'm 21, and I started playing a few years ago. I'm occasionally comfortable stringing 2s, and occasionally comfortable hitting the odd 5.
