Who's a midlife skater Dad?

I've been catching the skateboarding bug recently and am thinking of getting back into it. I was never good, but there's no time like the present! And I can learn with my kids.

I still skate around the driveway and can still pull off the occasional kick flip. I’ve actually been thinking of setting a goal to actually drop into a quarter pipe this month. In all of my years of skating I always did it on the street so didn’t get much time with ramps and such. But as a nearly 40 year old…I’m thinking there is no better time than now to do it 😂🤣 I did however buy a helmet, cause I need my brain now.

@Clifford I've always skated street, but I think I would have enjoyed vert more.

I finally learned how to do kickflips in my early 30s. 😆 Although I did the classic mistake of learning stationary and then it didn't translate to rolling. 🤪

@groovestomp yeah, street was my jam. Kick flip was absolutely the last thing I learned and even then I’m only hitting it 1 out of 10 times I bet.
