Fucking G&S brings back memories. My first board was a G&S Neil Blender. That was the board that I learned to ollie on.

I'm 41. This pic was taken about a year and a half ago.
I didn't skate a lot last year due to the need to stay healthy for a work project.
Most of the guys I skate with are at least mid 30's, most older.
This is at a private bowl a friend (46 tears old) has at his business.


And my skate on the back of the bike...

I recently started looking at these:

Vertical laminate, super flexy..saw one in the local store and it felt cool but different.

Something for cruising for sure!

I skated in my younger years. My advice to you:

Already saw a few mentions of wrist-guards. Wear 'em, at least untili you're proficient. And a helmet, too.

Start slow (tennis court, or somewhere without cracks in the pavement would be ideal.)

Have a blast!
