Is it the amount of time since you decided to pick up skateboarding as a hobby and skate everyday?
Or is it the amount of time since you first bought a skateboard?
I started skating everyday 5 years ago but I owned a skateboard 8 years ago as just a toy I would ride on occasion, similarly to how kids ride scooters and bikes but I would always watch the x games and all these televised competitions and buy all the latest tony hawk games. Does this mean I have actually been skating for 8 years or 5 years? I'm just wondering since saying that I've been skating for 8 years sounds pretty deep.
