Never too old to skate. J Mascis still does and he's cooler than anybody I've ever met. Here's some proof from his music video to "Over It". He's a long grey haired rocker who is 47. Never too old to skate. Maybe I am too young to skate. They used doubles for most of the tricks, but yeah, still cooler than I'll ever be.

Got home from riding this weekend & watched the Bones Brigade Autobiography. Got quite motivated to head over to the local skatepark only to remember that I tossed my last board that busted on me. I hit up amazon & found this:

Hard to argue with a 15$ complete. Some quick googling shows it's same company as powell\peralta. So we'll see.

Let's hope I don't poke my eye out with that thing

Just started skating again. Feels so damn good. I'm still very rusty, but I'm progressing bit by bit and loving it.

The Positiv board is just about done. I did finally get some new shoes. Gotta say, DC has some good stuff, and at 25$ on Amazon, I couldn't complain.

Quick clip from today at the local park. Crappy park for sure, but beats sitting on the rowing machine.

Bring it!

I am with you - 40 yrs old, used to skate when I was a kid but took it up again a couple of years ago. I twisted my ankle skating a bowl with my nephew this spring, but those heal! Someone suggest tapping up first - totally.

I went to an indoor skatepark for the first time in almost 10 years. So weird to not have to wear a helmet. Of course a little over an hour in, I snapped my board doing a flat ground 360 flip.

The next day I picked up an Almost deck. Its got some carbon fiber in it. Lots of good pop. Different concave that looks mellow, but flips nice. Its also the widest board I've ever skated. 8.25". I had skated 7.5 - 7.625 up until this past year.

Decks and shoes are also officially destroyed in a month.

Well the Almost deck has started cracking already. I got proactive and bought a new setup from skatewarehouse.com. I wanted to buy from the local shop, but I got carried away with sale items and color matching. I ended up with a nice setup for 70$

Skatewarehouse blank deck 8"
Jessup (only stuff I've ever used. The factory was a few miles from my house)
Venture horror low trucks
FKD bearings
Mini logo 54mm wheels



The local indoor park updated their place so I'll go check it out Saturday.

got home from a two week work trip
over night flight and then an internal flight, lots of traveling
wife drank all the beer, no in for dinner or after yard work this arvo so I skated up to the bottle shop for a 6 pack
am new to skate boarding so still getting the hang of it.
Mrs Hay Ewe bought me a regular plastic board at the begginging of the year, its a start, but I would rather take that to the shops than cycle and worry about one of my bikes outside the shop

Even if I skateboard daily for about 25 years I was never any good, this guy takes it to a whole new lever, not only his execution is stellar but his "Boundary pushing" is remarkable..
