Iím 28 and it changes from week to week. Sometimes 4 times sometimes I donít make it out. But I would say on average 1-2 times a week. Who knew you you would get so busy as an adult.

32. 2-3 times per week. Maybe 4 if Iím really feeling good. Iíve had about 7 knee injuries so itís pretty hard to maintain more than 3 per week on a consistent basis.

Edit: this is definitely the summer schedule. When days are shorter I usually canít make it to my local park after work before it gets dark. So itís 1-2 times per week: once on the weekend and maybe one time trekking a little further to a park with lights.

24, and I try to at least skate flat every day. Actual sessions at the park or street spots maybe twice a week, which I know is pretty weak.

25, once a week, twice if I'm lucky. I work a lot and it's disappointing how hard it is to stay consistent when you're not out skating every day.

33, this week I've been biking to work and skating everyday because I'm teaching a skate camp that hits up different parks around SF and Ft. Miley. I usually skate pretty heavy 5 days a week if the surf isn't rideable. If there are waves my skating is more mellow.

I switched to soft wheels about 4 years ago and that has helped me stay on my board. There came a point where it was extremely painful to have to powerslide while bombing hills on hard wheels, soft wheels let me control my speed through carving.

41. I skate about 2 - 3 times a week, but mostly surrounding the weekend. Ever since I started working full time at 18 years old I've barely skated during the week - 8 hours of anything is all I have in me for a day, at that point I just want to chill, eat, and go to sleep. It takes a lot of motivation for me to do anything on a day that I already worked a full shift. But I'm also super burnt out on skating where I live, so that affects how much I want to skate.

29. My two physical hobbies - skating and basketball - destroys your knees and hates everyone over 25 so I usually have the capacity for one at a time. I skate alot in the spring and fall and hoop indoors in the summer and winter.

When I am skating its about 3 sessions a week.

35. 3-7 days a week usually depending on circumstances like weather and work. Iím hurt right now so all I can do is push around for a short period before pain starts setting in, so less for the next 8 or so weeks
Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is ďYESĒ
I quit skating for a time due to piling out

thereís also a thread about this in skate questions.

39 soon. six days a week. lately four times during the week, flatground and ledges. and park with mellow transition or street again, saturday and sunday. I still hate skateparks but Iíve been getting tired of skating the same street spots all the time so decided to start hitting up parks a little. my sessions are usually one to two hours.

43 and I get 1-3 sessions in a week, but I Slap while at work everyday so that counts for something, right?

Yeah i'm 27 and I wish I could skate more. I feel super guilty that I'm on Slap all day and only skate on the weekends. Been logged in far more than usual lately. Making up for lost time, its nice to be back.

30 and 2-3 times a week. Basically all low impact stuff and slappies these days. Doesn't mean I can't fuck myself up. I make warming up on flatground look like a damn warzone.

43 and 2-3 times a week. It's so hot here that I kinda hate it right now, and I got my first flat spot since coming back to skating, but I am pushing through.

31.

3-5 times a week, usually super early in the morning. I run a restaurant so I'm constantly on my feet but I'm happy with how my legs are holding up.
