Just getting back into Skateboarding for the first time in about 15 years(29 years old now), had to stop when I was 15 due to severe growing pains in my knee's =[

Anyone else skate and got any tips?

    Well best advice for ice skating is to trust the blades on the bottom of your feet once you start learning to stop. Let em dig into that ice, you’ll fall a few times but will catch on quick. Rollerblading feels weird to me because I can’t stop on a dime

  • I have a little penny cruiser I use to get around my university campus and every now and then me and some mates will go cruise around on them just to get around and hang out for a bit. I'm not really a fan of skateboards, just because I was a little late to the skating game and don't know how to perform any tricks. :p but I do like cruising around on any board I can (skateboards included)!
  • I always envied the skater kids. No balance or depth perception would make this deadly to myself. But good on you getting back into it bud. We are very close to the same age also

    Thanks man, I just finished ordering my set up and it should be here before Christmas, but I fully expect it to arrive in January xD. I've got the board and grip tape, so I've been messing around with it on the carpets without trucks and wheels. It's... Interesting to say the least :tongue: I've not broken anything around the house yet, so we'll see what happens when I start rippin' the streets again :sunglasses:

    It's never too late to learn! I only skated for about 2 years, so I wasn't overly consistent with any tricks, except I could backside 5-0 any small ledge first try, it just came really naturally to me, unlike the 360flip(tre flip), which I only ever landed once ¬_¬ So I'm not exactly Rodney Mullen on a comeback lol.
