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

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

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.)

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

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.

one time i went to see my grandma in the hospital when she was just waking up from surgery and the first thing she said (really feebly) was “neil… what does… your shirt say” and i had to say “skate and destroy” in front of the nurse and my whole family

lmao

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.

hint: it's exactly what it sounds like

She didn't do a backfoot heelflip though. If nothing else she just kicked out a beat late. Still a normal heelflip otherwise.

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. )
