Apparently YouTube knows I'm an old skater because one of Shitbag's videos popped up in my recommended list.

I recently binge watched all the bobshirt interviews and got hyped on skating again. Also just seeing older guys still ripping on instagram and stuff. I've been on and off for the past 6 or 7 years. Just busy with life and relationships. I usually just get frustrated and bored that I can't do even the simplest shit like I used to and fade out again. This time kind of feels different though. I got some cheap Kalis lites and new setup and I'm loving them. I didn't think I'd been that out of the loop, but when I went to buy new stuff and had no idea what a conical wheel was or that 8.5" boards are like a normal thing now I felt old. It seems like Hockey/Fucking Awesome are the most popular brands now but I'm not feeling them. I got an 8.2 Chocolate which is definitely the biggest board I've ever skated and it feels great. I went out and just skated flat at a school parking lot the other night and it felt pretty good. I was eventually able to still do a decent amount of stuff when I got comfortable on my board again. I also realized that skateboarding has always been more of a mental challenge for me rather than a physical one. Once I can get over the mental hump of doing something it's easier than I thought.

All the parks out here in CO are mostly a bunch of crazy concrete tranny stuff. Coming up just skating flat and ledges I feel so out of place. I have no idea how to ride that shit. I never even really learned to drop in well. Just give me a smallish ledge I can't hurt myself too bad on and some run up that isn't directly into the deep end of a 15 ft bowl and I'm good. You can keep all that other shit. It's funny because most of the older guys at the parks are the opposite and don't ever touch the street stuff.

This has to be the paradigm of how to do a bs 180 to fakie 5-0 to regular. What a treat!

I agree, choosing a size when older (and especially now) has me wondering what to do. I skated a 7.75 then moved to 7.625 blank from there. I had venture lows on it and like 52mm wheels. Seemed to work fine. Once I skated the 7.625 for a couple of months I found anything bigger felt really weird, like almost too big. I guess you just adapt to whatever.

I have a rule for my old-man skating, which is flat ground only. As I kid I dropped in on 8 foot vert. I'm trying to learn tre-flips just to get a clip. Other than that I push and do ollies and shuvs and shit. I learned fakie front 180s (fs half cab? meh) Nothing crazy. I was going balls deep ollie'ing over stuff in a construction zone like a year ago though. Once you get into a groove you start throwing caution to the wind, gotta be careful though. I rolled my ankle so bad I thought I might see bone. I also ate shit ollie'ing over decks and face planted. Elbow/arm could've been broken. Shit like that. Skating is dangerous thats what sucks about it.

Yeah I'm not really about doing anything other than flat ground and smallish flat ledges. I never really was one to huck myself up, over, or down big stuff though. I mentioned to my mom the other day that I started skating again recently and she just sent me a long text telling me I'm old and washed up and could injure myself and become disabled and not be able to walk my dog anymore, and could I at least promise her I would wear a helmet.
