24 and when my meniscus isn't fucked a skate every day.  I'm lucky though and live near a skatepark in a city with a million random spots.

Just turned 29, only recently been properly back at skateboarding again.
From skating once or twice a week Iíve managed to feel comfortable on a board again (after a few injuries) after about 3 weeks of skating. I had already found a good lot of my go to tricks coming back in that time too.
Now itís been about 3 months and Iíve just started learning new tricks and PROGRESSING for the first time in the last two weeks. Iím getting hurt a ducking lot- Iím hobbling home from an all day session at the park and Iím equal parts excited about the Skate today and sore as fuck.

Skateboarding: come for the fun...stay for the drama.

26. everyday if its not raining or i'm injured. only really sesh 2-4 times/week tho. i hate skateparks.

i find if i don't push a little or ollie some curbs everyday i lose what little tricks i have
I started getting a lot better when I went back to college and started taking a lot of math classes when I was 31.

I figured out how to figure things out better, if that makes sense.

18, i try to skate every day as long as the weather is ok. if i don't have time to go to a park or hit the streets, i go and fuck around in a parking lot near my house just to stay somewhat consistent.

I'm 36.
I skate 5 or 6 days a week.
I live in the mountains in Hokkaido though so in winter it's more like twice a month but then I'm snowboarding (what a kook) basically every day.

37. Blew out my left knee almost a year ago. Torn ACL or meniscus, not sure which but had about 12 ounces of trauma fluid drained out back in December. Need surgery but uninsured. As a result all i think about is how much I want to be skating.

42. I go through phases where I'm all in and phases where I am consumed with fishing or running. I'll always love skating and will never quit.

I went out today after being off my board for 4 months (been fishing like crazy) and didn't notice any major issues with being away. Basic lines weren't an issue and I never felt like I wasn't warmed up so being off for so long did not make a difference.

36. One night a week after work and a full weekend day every three weeks or so. A wife, a three year old and a full time job fill a lot of time.

40, once a week.  twice if i'm lucky

A skate session lasts about 1-3hrs.  Usually I hurt the next day so i just sit at my desk and recupreate.

42.  If I'm lucky I get to skate at least once a week.  Sometimes twice.  It's so freakin' hot and muggy here lately.  If it's not near triple digits its raining.  Still I try to at least get in one session a week at least.

28 and 2-3 times per week as long as the weather is good. Mostly just flat, street and occasionally bombing hills or bridges

This feels eerily familiar.

44 and I pretty much don't skate anymore since a compound ankle fracture at 39 got me shook.   :-X
I still cruise around a lot though. With my kids or for transportation.
I keep returning to Slap cause I still follow skating kinda....old habits die hard.
anyways considering lately my knees hurt without me doing any sports, hanging in the towel might have been the smart thing to do.....even though it feels a bit shameful to admit it.

the other thing that sweetens the loss a little is that all my old buddies have stopped skating too, so I don't feel like I'm missing out on too much.

32. It used to be 5 times a week until I thought it would be a great idea to open a skateshop. Now it's once a week.
