Who all skates on here? I used to, years ago, 'till I was about 15 or 16. Thinking of picking up a board but I've literally not stepped on one in 15 years. Laughing out loud

Accident waiting to happen.

I used to from aged 11 until I was about 21. Then again when I was 26. I tried again in my early 30’s on and off, buying a few set ups, but fuck me when you come off it was ludicrously painful Cry I rolled my ankle and called it quits as that affected my job. Still love it though, always will. Most stuff I follow on Instagram is skate/surf related. Ive got some vids from when I was about 15/16, I’d post them up if anyone could offer some advice on how to Smiling

Still skating since 95, turning 40 next month.
Only get to skate every 2 weeks and don´t kill myself any more but it´s still fun and will always remain a part of my life.

I skated from about 13-21, was that tony hawks pro skater period Laughing out loud Tried picking it up again before the pandemic started and it’s so fucking fun, wish I’d never stopped. Knees fucked though (was why I stopped at 21)

Picked up skating tranny for the first time ever in August last year, and absolutely loved it. Had a similar problem as you Mod where I rolled my ankle really bad coming down the other side of a drop in on a super small bowl, but thankfully was WFH so impact on my working life was minimal.

Tried to skate through it through Oct and Nov but ankle is still pretty stiff, then haven't skated since 2020 due to shite weather and full lockdown. Looking forward to better weather so I can get back on!

Advice for the older dudes is pad up, and be mindful that stuff that you would've walked off when you were a teen will stay with you if you're not careful, but no reason to not give it a go!

Seems like we are basically all skaters then? Laughing out loud

I’ll be sure to update you all on how badly I’ve injured myself in the next few weeks. Since my last post I’ve just ordered a set up.

Death deck, Indy trucks and some ricta wheels. No idea if that’s what the cool kids skate these days but it’s what I used to back in the day. Cool Ubercool

This is dope - tech AF. Safeways used to be a class spot where I'm from too.

I'll need to see if I can find any old videos. I've got a few pics but I think my old dear has them all. There's an edition of Sidewalk magazine (does anyone remember that!?) that I ended up in too at some point. Would be cool to dig that out.
