    Longboarding is pretty fun. I have a buddy that got really into longboarding, he was never a skater though. He finally convinced me to go with him so i borrowed his brothers board and i beat him down every hill lol. If you learn how to bomb hills on a shortboard then big hills on a longboard aren't very scary.

    This thread is old, but I used to skateboard back in high school. I got tired of eating it.

    32 years old, still skate 3 times a week, weather permitting. I've probably gotten out of it 2-3 times for a year or more at a time and every time I pick it back up, I regret staying away for so long. I bring a suit and skate on business trips!
    I encourage anyone who used to skate to go buy themselves a new setup or a longboard and just cruise for a couple hours and you'll be hooked again. I just bought a new setup and went with risers and big wheels. It's mainly just for cruising

    I used to skate every day and live for it. Now I'm older and more lame. Once in a while I screw around with it in my garage. I still have an eye open for sick skate spots, and I always point them out. I think it drives my wife crazy. Ha ha.

    I wish I had some of my decks from the late 80's. Just even to hang them on the wall. Those are a couple of beauties.

    I still get the "punk skater kid" looks from people occasionally. Doesn't matter that my kids are in grade school and I have a mortgage etc .... Haha
