You're still a youngster. You'll do fine.
I never did much park skating as a kid, but I remember the first park opening in Fayetteville. My parents were never really happy me with skating (yeah, I was the kid wearing the red hockey helmet) and never let me go, so all my stuff ended up riding hills, maybe doing a few minor tricks. Used to keep the board bungeed to my bicycle as I scouted out runs after school. Great memories and no major biffs.
I was surprised at how quickly it came back to me almost 30 years later. The skills and balance were there...the only problem I had was braking.
Apparently my hop-off-and-run abilities were greatly diminished by time.
