    Longboarding is a different thing. I personally donít think it makes a lot of sense outside of the endless beachside flat pavements of California, but itís definitely a very accessible and fun form of skateboarding.

    Plenty of boardwalks and flat spots for longboarding here, think it's supposed to be one of the best cities for it. It's just a bit rainy and colder than Socal

    Right you are then. So what are people's views on grown men on those scooters then?

    Yeah not to put you off but it's a difficult fucking sport. You'll need to do it every day to get anywhere
    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.
    Now bear in mind I have not set for on a board in over ten years but I skated for about 5 or so in my teens and did a little bit in my twenties but I'm 100% certain I could hop on a board tomorrow and pop an Ollie within my first 1 tries (I'll say 10 tries for a kickflip).

    It is hard to be really really good but it's not that hard to be ok. I'm sure you'd have fun rolling about and you'd probably be able to learn to Ollie and no comply and shit relatively quickly.

    A kickflip is probably beyond you at this stage as it takes serious dedication but just riding around popping ollies is fun. I've been really tempted to buy a board again myself recently.

    I can vouch for the ollie, I never really skated properly, but I think I can ollie better now I'm older.

    I've tried a couple of times, even in a full suit, still got that ollie in me!

    @MrFlay Maybe this is a mid-life crisis thing but I have had the same thoughts of taking up skateboarding at the age of 37. Never did it when I was younger but it looks fun and something I can take on with my son as well as being decent exercise. Donít plan on doing anything crazy but the odd trick and cruising seems like it could be within my grasp.

    How did you get on? Any tips for another late beginner?
