Iím 42.  I skate on average 1-2 times per month.  Itís not much but after 30+years of skating and 3 knee surgeries itís finally taken itís toll on my body and thatís about all I can handle.  Iíd do it over and over if I could.  I have such great memories of being able to skate 8 hours a day in the Florida heat and humidity pain free.  Great times.  I may not have ever climbed Mt Everest but I know Iíve seen what my body is capable of and that is so much more than most can say.

I'm 23, I try to skate everyday after work if possible normally I get 4-5 sessions in a week, most times I skate for 45 mins to an hour and a half, week days I normally skate a manual pad or flat bar with one or two skaters that live super close to me, I personally don't mind skating alone, so at least once or twice a week I skate alone and try to learn a new trick. I try to go to a park every weekend for a couple hours or out skating with a larger group of friends.

most of my life (roughly 13 through 29) i'd be out 4-6 days a week depending on the weather in upstate ny and new england. i'd even manage around 3 a week with indoor ramps and parks throughout the winter.

I'm 30, moved to Los Angeles and hardly skate now. When I'd commute the train from Koreatown to Santa Monica,  I'd skate Lafayette on the way home and rough out 2-3 times a week. I'm working freelance in West Hollywood and I'm maybe out once a week. I work a lot, commute is long, it's not as easy to meet up with friends casually, and summer is too hot for me to only want to go to parks. I'm lucky to have Lafayette only a few blocks down otherwise I'd hardly get any skating in. This seems like a dumb lifestyle that I haven't figured out yet.

33 years old and skating about 2-3 times a week. Who would have thought having kids would take up so much time?  ???

Iím 24 and usually skate at least or 5 days out of the week. Save two to spend time with my lady.

I work early mornings into the early afternoon, so Iím able to get out everyday if I truly want to. It just sucks because I can feel my knees getting worse the longer I work at this bakery.
Oh, well..it pays the bills and keeps me skating.

36 y/o, 3 ACLs surgeries and I skate average of 3x a week (mostly flatground and an DIY).

It's not easy to have 36 but I feel better than ever. I also run 10k on thursday before work and lift weight so I can keep my legs strong due to all the ACL surgeries.

running is too good, everyone should do that.



Triple ACL gang whatup my fellow cripple. the weather hurts this week donít it?

2x on my right leg and 1x on my lefty.

never felt anything after surgery, probably because I did all the PT and shit, and like I said, I keep my legs strong in order to mitigate future injuries.
