Here you go Gramps.

Whether you've just started up again or if you've been killin' it for a long ass time, I've got the one stop, all encompassing thread for ya.

No more declarations about how you're back to the skate game before your feeble ass is out again. Just fucking post your old ass shit here.

I'll help you start by posting some old ass shit from back when I was coming up

Here's what happens when old fucks try to get in the Skate game

Fuk yes, thx fo psting MindField!  I lost my digi copy when I spilld Four Loko all ovr my old ass iPad 1. LOLZ  :o :o :o :'(.  Talk about some classic old skool sk8ing, man that takes me back. The day after I saw it, I ebayed my razr scooter to some Japanese business man and used the money to buy a bunch of Alien Workshop hats, t-shirts belt and coin purse.  I just wish I could find more footage of that Kirchart kid.  He must of quit for skool or sum shitz because I don’t ever see him on teh Barrics.

That NZSkate video with the dramatic Kiwis was entertaining.  The irony reminds of an occasion when my Mom was in town and we were out somewhere and some dudes standing in line right ahead of us were being obnoxiously loud and vulgar.  I decided to throw out the following tongue lashing “Hey! Watch your mouths you fucking cunts, my mom is standing right here.”  It shut them up but the hypocrisy took a few seconds to sink in after finishing the sentence.  Road to Hades paved with good intentions.

The feeling of old guys skateboarding is probably the same one would get going down on a girl after soccer practice.

It is a sour patch.

When my dad got me a Kamikaze for Xmas I was pissed until I figured out how to hurt myself on it.  I was one of about 4 people at the Del Mar Skate Ranch in '86 watching Mullen prove I would be ungnarley for life.  Fuckin old guys trying to have fun, we are weak sauce.

Don't let this out but this May marks year 36th? on that stupid toy. I get progressively worse each year. Fuck it. It's still a blast. I never really stopped but time has a way of slowing your body down. I'm not going to ever pretend I will be able to skate like I did when I was 20 again.

I'll be 38 in about two weeks, so that means that according to that Skate Rock China Yardsale clip, the Phelper's been skatin' for as long as I've been alive.  Can't do nothin' but respect that!  My plan is to skate until I can't physically stand on the board any more and gross out as many people as possible with my "skating" along the way.  :P

Post by: Jay on February 05, 2013, 05:35:06 PM
Hi. I'm 32. I still skate... or maybe I started skating again, depending on how you look at it.

I started at 15, sucked for four years, stopped when I was 18 because drugs and alcohol (and frustration), started again at 20, sucked a little less when I was in my early 20's (thanks to living in San Francisco), stopped when I was 23, started again at 25, stopped when I was 26, started again at 28, and then finally stopped again at 29 besides for transportation (I gave up on doing tricks and going to spots/parks) and then started skating "for real" again last month. My 7 year old daughter skates with me now. I'm psyched to have a skate homie again.

I debated even posting here because there are a bunch of pros who are well over 30 as well as just regular skaters. I really didn't think about my age until now, but I figured if you're taking roll, I might as well.

Oh, and maybe it's just because I've only been out of skating for three years, but I used to hear people say that it takes longer to recover from falls when you're old. I fell hard several times last night and it doesn't feel any different than how it did when I was younger.

Jay, That's awesome. I'm 44 and just got back into it last Sept after not skating since my mid 20's. Got back into it after my kids started. I here you about skating with your kid it is great. Love taking them to the parks around hear. I'm having a great time with them and it's something we can do together, got my son in lessons and he's progressing ever day. So fun to see them so stoked on it.

Got ampped on it after watching some Local guys hear on you tube who are my age and older and still ripping, figure I got many years to skate as long as I stay strong and healthy. Wish I never stopped but stoked that I'm back at it. Don't mind the hard falls either makes me feel young not Old!!!

I'm about to be 36.  I skate every day. I work at a skate shop/park so that helps out.  I started when I was in second grade.  My first board was one from Ames.  It was a Valterra board with a dragon on the bottom of it. I still own it even though it's beat down.  It's the first thing you see when you walk into my house. I'll never forget just bombing hills as a kid learning how to just stay on.  That first time getting down the hill was the best feeling ever.  And learning how to ollie was like this perfect gift. Kids these days spend way too much time trying to become trick machines, that they forget the fun of just riding and carving, and even the simple act of popping onto the curb and off.  Just give me a boom box and a curb and I am good to go for hours.   We have Old Man sessions at the park I work at and it's always fun to skate with the older rippers.  Seeing them destroy the bowl is the best stoke!  Just keep rolling.  Who cares if you are the old dude at the skate park who can just ride around as long as you are on that board that’s all that matters!

I'm 50 this year, skated since 1977, never gave up and no -I can't do an inward, nollie heel flip disaster nosebleed puree wankburger. I still get out there though, and teach kids at the local park. Amazing how many of them are trying inward, nollie heel flip disaster nosebleed puree wankburgers but can't do kickturns both ways. Just sayin' However - this got me thinking (a dangerous thing) and now I'm writing a book on adult skateboarding. Go figure. I need help from all you older types though. I have an online survey out to ask about your skating habits and how they've changed as you got older at http://bit.ly/Z8R4EK (http://bit.ly/Z8R4EK) . Filling this out will give me a lot more info so I can make sure what I'm writing about is not BS. Spare me a couple of minutes and head over there and answer some questions will ya? Thanks. Lee.

great to see some more old guys posting about how ugly and gross they feel about still having to push around some useless kids toy. 

someone at work asked me the other day about slams and the healing process, as well as if i see myself stopping.  i told them that if i were to stop, i would go quickly, like this guy.

35 in two months, did a bit of rolling around as a kid but got my first setup in early 95'
Ianucci 101 deck, Menace Big Dog Wheels and Venture trucks...

Mainly skated street until they rebuilt Henley miniramp in 96'
Dropped out a few times (mainly due to a broken ankle) but always seem to keep coming back.

yes i have!  i rolled up on it a few years ago when they were building it, on a vancouver road trip.  they told me it wasn't going to open for a few weeks but if i wanted to stop by on my way back, they would let me shred it.  it's fun. been to it about 4 times now.  it's never been busy when i've gone either.  usually i'm just getting out of the car, skating and then heading on so the sessions aren't really hard.  maybe that's what makes it fun and it's really just a shitty park lol!   last year i stopped on the way out and back so i do like it.  i placed a "skaters" sticker on the sign there, day one, that's still holding up! 

the newer BC parks are much nicer. Merritt is great.  i've skated some of the old small town ones like Lumby, Coldstream and Vernon and they are interesting for a stop. invermere has a nice new one too but if you make it that far, you might as well come to calgary.

Turning 41 in July, started skating in 87 stopped around 2000.  Started back up cause my life sucks and skating made me happy most of my life.  Looking at a pending divorce and a job that sucks, but getting back on my board makes me happy again.  Why did I ever stop in the 1st place?  Ohh that's right I bought into the bullshit of becoming an "adult".

@killaclev; I'm beside you. I'm turning 32 and coming back into it after a 12 year hiatus. I just never found a comparable sport that I truly enjoyed like skateboarding. I never really had a skate park available to me when I was younger, and now they're everywhere. The youth don't mind because I'm not hitting their obstacles or owning the park. I give respect. If anything, returning to skateboarding is helping me to reflect on my life and the pursuit of happiness. I bought into the concept of becoming an "adult" too. Fortunately, I figured it out before it all got out of hand. I have a goal with this return, and that's to progress to the point where I can travel to, and get a line going at Burnside.
