|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
Tell me about your father, Joyless Man, user PES?
He's just misunderstood (and dead)
Oh dear. I'll err see myself out.
Oh, I'm okay with it
Right you are then. So what are people's views on grown men on those scooters then?

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
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!
In what scenario were you ollieing in a full suit?!

I was gleaming the cube the other day in a particularly radical fashion.
MrFlayed if he ever sets for on a board, amirite

@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?
