    mind you, for the average person who doesn't skate a lot, i'd still back the original statement.

    It goes mostly for the rest of us. A friend of mine is a professional drummer. He stepped on a skateboard for the first time in years, and broke his arm about five minutes into it. Getting older ain't no picnic. Break your arm when your 16, and all your friends write dirty messages on your cast. Break it when your 40, and you can't pay your bills for a month. I live in Vancouver and when ski season gets here you start seeing a ton of middle aged people with casts on their arms and legs. When you see a kid with a cast you don't even notice, but when you see an adult with one you always wonder what the hell they were doing.

    Re: Mike wilson fast or not?

    fully understood... i can also say that while i was in my last few years at college, all the frat bros were really getting into long boards. and even though it was already something fairly regular in a college town, the "drunk guy with a cast" became even more prevalent around that time, since there was a new reason other than "oh, i got drunk and punched a wall/door." also, "bro, check out my road rash" guy started to be a thing.

    as long as someone knew they longboarded, though, it was all good with them.

    I know what you're saying Avery, but I don't think I'm too old to hang it up. The day you say "i'm too old to skate" is when you start getting old.

    Some of my best friends, P Wee & Joel Long from Bolder Ink, are over 35 and 40 and still skate, just like me. I'm pretty sure Grime still skates. Obviously Mike does too. All of us have broken an arm (or two!) but it doesnt mean it's gonna stop us from ever skating again.

    3 years ago P Wee & I were at Vail and halfway through a day of riding when we noticed the guy in front of us on the lift was 60something and still ripping. PW turned to me and said "we still got 30 or so years left of this". This is how I see it too.




    I'm also not scared to look like the old man and wear wristguards and a helmet.

    I knew he broke his arm a few weeks ago or whatever but I kind of assumed it would be healed by then. Silly me.
