Did the hover board technology from Back to the Future ever pan out? I would look into those for starters. Maybe check the Aerostich catalog for hover board specials and dig deep into the closet for those old Back To the Future Pizzia Hut sunglasses. Those young bucks are less likely to single you out on a sweet ass hover board anyway.


You can thank me later, its what I do... solve problems.

I skated from around 11-18 off and on. I bought another board last month to get back in the groove, Im amazed at what I can remember and dissapointed at what I can not. I say go for it!! But protect yourself, concrete is hard and unforgiving.

Nonsense, 43 here (that's nearly 30 years of skating on and off) I still enjoy it!

Good for you!

They're fun...and they're art.

I've also got a rare K2 that's way cool.

If you get tired of trying to be a youngster on ramp, go for the longboards. Few things are as sweet as a nice, easy long carving session. Every once in a while I'll see a kid commuting on a longboard and I give 'em a big

I can't ride now but I sure hope to in the future. I probably should sell 'em to raise some cash, but I'm getting rid of moto gear first...that's how much I love 'em. They've got incredibly good karma.

I still skate at 35. Makes 32 years on boards.

Go to a skatepark early in the morning, before the kids, you'll likely find a bunch of old guys rolling around. At the park in Boulder, there's hardly anyone under 30 there before 9:00 AM.

Skateboarding has given me many things, one of which is "interesting x-rays".

I boarded up a storm as a kid, way before plastic wheels and the nice stuff that is out there today. No helmet, no gear, just ride and crash.

We had a real long curvy downhill driveway and I was on it almost every day. One day my Grandmother came out and took a short ride 20~30 feet on my board. She was in her 70's a the time. Still makes me smile to picture Granny gliding down the walkway on my board. What a lady she was.

My sister....day before 8th grade cheerleading tryouts, decides to take my board down the road. It was a long steep hill and I had been on it before so I knew it well and also knew my board would go into a high speed wobble if you went too fast. She went anyway, even after I told her not to. The older sister "knows more than you, if you can do it so can I" thing. I followed on my bike waiting for the inevitable to happen and it did. She went straight down, went into a huge wobble at speed and thought she would just step off the board when it got reall bad, sort of like Buggs Bunny I guess. The term "ragdoll" pretty much describes the crash, it wasn't pretty.

Cheerleading tryouts were skipped as the "human scab" was in not condition to move, period.

Have fun with your new board.

raise your hand if your parents threw out what would be a collector's item board now.

I think SWMBO had a BAHNE.

buddy of mine down in Sandy Eggo is 52 or 53. He was a pro skater a generation BEFORE Tony Hawk (world champ giant slalom in 1975), and he's still shreading. does big air on the pipe. he's invented a thing he calls Skogging, which is a hybrid of jogging and skating, he covers 20 miles a day on a longboard along mission beach.



he rides a bike too.

me, I sucked on any kinda boarding. 2 wheels is where its at. 4 is too many.
