41. Once or twice a week if I'm lucky. Although recently went three weeks without skating somehow... kids, job, life. But it makes me want it more. Which is cool.
i have nothing to fear but jesse himself.

34.  2-3 Times a week, weather and body permitting. Iíve had some serious injuries, so if my back is feeling at all iffy, I donít even try. I do ride my cruiser almost every day, though.

I really didn't know there were actually so many 30s guys on SLAP, I kinda thought the stereotype was a myth. But I don't know what other people would really be on here. 12 year olds and retirees?

Anyway I'm 29 and I have probably skated about 3 sessions this year. I've got all sorts of excuses, but I started getting myofascial release massage done last month. I got checked and realized my body is legitimately a little warped from skating. I was walking with one foot straight and one foot a little ducked out, I'm assuming from pushing. One calf is bigger on one leg, and on the other leg, the quad is bigger, and one knee is a little higher than the other. And this weirdness contributes to my persistent upper back and shoulder pain.

Ex. (actually a scoliosis picture but I think it illustrates my point)


My idea is that after a few more sessions my body will be more evened out and I'll start skating again, but I've been running as well. Has anyone gone through anything like this?

29. I try at least once a week minimum. I work at chemical plant, so Iím on my feet all day and climbing ladders.. all kinds of vessels... My knees wonít allow anything beyond 1-3 days a week.

Yep.  Iíve never had a job that involves sitting down. I feel like if I sat all day I could skate during the week but usually my legs are fucked after work. I want to skate but I just gotta eat and put my feet up.

28. 5-6 days a week when I'm off work. 0 days when I'm on. I just spent 65 days off the board. Sometimes the hard reset's not bad for the legs.

considering skateboarding is asymetric as fuck
we all have that calf / quad / back situation but we don't all suffer the consequences as you do

on topic

28 in a couple months, weeks differ. I just left a 6 day a week job for a 4 day this week, skating maybe 2-3 days (nothing over an hour) had a few days off before starting, first thing i did was actually head to a park early morning, wound up being there for three hours and including tomorrow itíll be 5 days this week skating

29 and more or less every day but I wouldn't say Im actively trying to improve. if there was a decent park nearby or better pavement in general I would skate more
I can see why people think Slap is a bunch of retards; multiple people think Menikmati is the worst skate video of all time?

20, maybe 3 times a week if I'm lucky with my workschedule. In the winters probably once a week if I'm feeling active

I'm 21 and I skate every day however I'm typically hurt like 8 months out of the year and I live on the east coast so it's winter the other 4 so zero days a week.

I'm 27, a MSW Level Therapist for Juvenile Sex Offenders and individuals in foster care ages 0-20, and I skate twice a week. I like to skate this newer park about 45 minutes away as it has a really fun bowl. Other than this I skate across the street from my house at the elementary school. I kid you not that for the 1.5/2 hours, all I do is ollie over stuff and attempt flip tricks that I have yet to land.

I'm 32 and skate 4-5 days/week from May to November, moreso now since I'm trying to finish a video part. From November to May, I'll skate three or four times due to winter and one sporadically open good indoor park.

With everything going on in my life and the fact that I was never that good, I doubt I'll skate much from next year onward. I'm not going to be Able where I'll be 41 and killing it. But I'll still skate.

I'm 36 and skate in some form every single day, be it to work or the store; as far as a proper session, I'd say 4-5 times a week...in the winter perhaps 2-3.

27, from 2 to 5 times a week, but rarely more than one hour a session. Going to grad school really fucks up my weekends, as I lose most of my saturday and so have to count on a good sunday.

Going on 35. 1-2 a week. Have 2 kids and work full time. My son is starting to skate so the sessions are going to be more frequent.
