    I skateboarded for a few years in my teens. Stood on one for the first time in ages a few years ago and had no muscle memory whatsoever, it was like I'd never done it before.

    Yeah not to put you off but it's a difficult fucking sport. You'll need to do it every day to get anywhere

    The only good thing about adult skateboarders is the joy they spread to the world at large when one of them falls off and faceplants in public.

    68kgs at 170cm is maybe a smidge overweight at 40, and thereís a definite dad spread emerging round the waste, but I doubt anyone would describe me as fat.

    So what do you do for a living thatís so admirable forum adonis Joyless_Man?

    @You-can-call-me-kal very similar to you actually. I don't feel the need to dribble on about it for internet points on Eurogamer though.

    @Joyless_Man you've found your own thing to dribble about.

    Ever more desperate and try hard with every post.

    Are you trying to get your little 'most funnierest' 2019 gold star or something?

    I do regret that one time I put whoever it was in their place for talking bollocks about brand tracking by waving my considerable willy around. It was a little gauche.

    Just so you know, randomly sniping in completely unrelated threads making jibes about my presumed style and weight also doesnít win internet points. Nor does flouncing off an Internet forum because someone disagreed with your terrible evaluation of a football player and holding a grudge about it for literal months.

    @You-can-call-me-kal I made a flippant comment about transfer fees going a bit mad and you, as usual, took it Uber seriously.

    I just think you're generally an odious, pedantic, cocky twat and that was the proverbial straw. All makes sense now though. Definite small man complex going on with you. Bet you're nice as pie IRL you're just projecting.

    I would genuinely delete my account but I can't remember the email I used to sign up for it. So if a mod can ban me pls that would be great for one and all.

    Otherwise it's going to be too tempting to come a sniping.

    There was a time I could do nearly everything Matt Hensley does in the opening scene of Shackle me not. We would consider ourselves semi pro because the local skate shop would give us stickers.

    Nowadays I would probably die so I stick to watching people on Instagram and lust after deck artwork. I'll get my boy on a board soon and use it as an excuse to buy my ideal skate setup I could never afford.

    The song from the black and white section of public domain still gets me pumped up.

    So here I am, doing everything I can
    Holding on to what I am
    Pretending I'm a superman
    I'm trying to keep, the ground on my feet
    Seems the world is falling down around me
    The night's are long, I'm singing this song
    Trying to make the answer's more a maybe
    And I'm so confused, about what to do
    Sometimes I want to throw it all away
    So here I am, growing older all the time,
    Looking older all the time,
    Feeling younger in my mind
    So here I am, doing everything I can
    Holding on to what I have
    Pretending I'm a superman
    I'm trying to sleep,
    I lost count of sheep,
    My mind is racing faster every minute
    What could I do more,
    Yeah, I'm really not sure
    I don't want to run in circles but I can't quit
    And I'm so confused
    I've got a lot to do
    Sometimes I want to throw it all away
    Controlling everything inside
    Feeling weak I don't feel right
    Telling me I have to change
    Telling me to act my age
    But if all that I can do
    Is to sit and watch time go
    Then I'll have to say goodbye
    And I'll be sure to watch time fly, to watch it fly-hy-hy
    So here I am,
    Growing older all the time,
    Looking older all the time,
    Feeling younger in my mind
    Here I am, doing everything I can
    Holding on to what I am,
    Pretending I'm a superman

    I don't want to get anywhere. Why is everyone so absurdly serious about fun stuff? Oh right, I forgot, dead inside. No achievement points, no point.

    Yeah not sure why everyone is trying to ruin your dream here Flay. You go to that skatepark and you do that skateboarding.

    I think people more mean just be careful. I bet it's super fun once you get going but Christ i know i'd seriously injure myself within an hour.

    You did kind of ask for perspective, but if you want to skateboard then knock yourself out (probably literally).

    Like any hobby itíll only start to be fun once you can actually do it reasonably well, so if you donít plan on ďgetting anywhereĒ with it then I canít see much point. Like buying a guitar to play 3 chords badly

    Exactly my era- a well off friend cobbled together two VHSís and pirated all the Bones Brigade videos for me and I watched those fuzzy wobbly videos to death.

    I know a few skaters who used to be sponsored and none of them have knees in a good shape, it's just like the downhill mountain biking that risks are there but part of that is the appeal. Last time I dropped in on a half pipe was the late 90's and I was more into rugby and later motorcross but those have dangers as well.

    Just don't be a hipster or hippy skater.

    Skating is probably the most difficult hobby I could think of taking up as a hobby as an adult.

    As a kid you can shake off the various bumps, bruises and scrapes. As an adult that elasticity and flexibility of youth is no longer there.

    To get past the point of tentatively pushing yourself about to being comfortable riding a board about is going involve a lot of pain.
