good one

For some reason I started looking at getting a old school reissue board in the last week - like 9.5" x 32", discernible nose and tail, 60mm wheels, something I can push around on without getting into longboard territory - and then out of nowhere my college roommate who I haven't seen in 4 years texted that he was going to be in town and had stated skating again and we should meet up at the skate park.

I still have my last board which I remember setting up in 1996 and has mostly been used to move heavy objects since I started my first "real" job in July of 1997. He's 41 and I'm 40 and we spent two hours skating and laughing about how winded we were from simple things. I was stoked that I ollied onto a 5" high curb and didn't fall, I landed a couple of (stationary) kickflips, etc. Now I can barely walk.

He told me about this video which got me way more excited than a lot of the ones above due to feeling much more attainable:

If it's any consolation, I've routinely gone through what your second paragraph throughout my mid 20s.

This past march I had my most decisive of "i am decisively going to start skating again" moments. I'd say after maybe the first three sessions I was back to a comfortable state. But then I went away for a month, but I come home tomorrow and hope I don't get lazy and stop.

Having finally visited skate-spot world capital Barcelona in this time, I am def psyched to get out skating and subsequently be disappointed by personal inadequacy very soon!

i'm 28, am i too old to learn to sk8 for the first time?

Ric Flairy (clouds), Friday, 22 May 2015 14:24 (four years ago) link

(lived on dirt road until 15; too embarrassed to try learning after that)

Ric Flairy (clouds), Friday, 22 May 2015 14:27 (four years ago) link

No way you could totally learn to skate at 28. You'll be great. Don't wait!

Sorry got carried away, but seriously, I think you could pick it up quickly.

from batman to balloon dog (carl agatha), Friday, 22 May 2015 14:51 (four years ago) link

oh yeah i don't think there's an age cutoff to learn any skill, mostly just wanted to spur conversation :3

Ric Flairy (clouds), Friday, 22 May 2015 15:08 (four years ago) link

I was surprised to learn a few years ago when I considered taking skating back up that the cost of entry is still pretty much the same. Decks and trucks and wheels have barely risen in price since I was a teenager.

(I ended up ruling it out because my body is a piece of shit now.)

never too old clouds! go for it!
skaters have the best clothes too imo

i like watching sk8ers just casually skating down the road on their way to wherever - that languid dip-down and pushhhhh. you can clock a good skater from a mile away just by the way they cruise. and even in a group, usually there's one or two who have it down and are super cruisey & somehow just get the natural physics & others who are stiff & push-push-push in a way that makes you tired watching all the effort

I was surprised by this as well - completes were perpetually like $100-110 and are maybe $120 or so now. Though there does seem to be a nostalgia/you-probably-have-a-real-job-now tax on reissue old school decks like the Santa Cruz Tom Knox cop beater I've been drooling over.

I saw this the other day and realized at the peak of me skating I could have totally heelfliped a set of three stairs and became simultaneously stoked and depressed that an 8 year old girl in a fairy costume was doing the same.

So cool! Reminds me a friend back in the 80s who had a pink Mullen deck.

(can't believe I found an image of one this time around. I've done a lot of image searches for pink Mullen decks that turned up nada. I almost didn't believe my own memory. )

A small victory for people power (for those who don't know, the skaters mounted a successful campaign against getting booted out in favour of commercial outlets).
