Old Dudes Post Up Here...
« on: November 14, 2013, 06:16:32 PM »
So, I kind of like coming here, but as a 38 year old skater I find it a little difficult sometimes to relate to the people who post here (skateboarding culture today in general), and the things that they like to talk about/post.

I know that a while back someone started a thread for older posters and people seemed stoked on it, but it got swallowed up in the never ending cycle of "Pro's that have been arrested" and "Elissa Steamer Is Gay" threads. I was hoping we could get another one going and keep it going; maybe even get it going strong enough to get it stickied?

 so I guess I would say, maybe check in and say, "what's up?", share a little basic info about yourself, and maybe we can have a place here at SLAP where we, the older dudes can come and check in and talk about what we want to without having to sift through a bunch of shit that doesn't interest us.

Try taking 25mg Zinc per day with 1mg Copper to balance. Zinc helps increase testosterone production. Raise that and the sex drive will take care of it self.

35
Scumco 8" (sometimes up to 8.25)
Indy 139
Bones Stf
Swiss 6
Mob

Engaged but good as married
No kids
Work pays the bills and I live comfortably. Gonna switch it up in a few years.
Favourite skaters, Stranger, Robbie Gangemi, AVE, Dill (deal with it), Gino, Heath and Klein, Chris Miller, Neal Hendrix, Mike Fraiser, Mike Daher, Westgate, DelTorre, Gall, Oyola, Barley, Kareem, Pontus, Hensley, Puleo (I know, I know), Rudy, Gabe, Henry, Sheffey, Drake Jones. That enough for now.

Prefer street, parks for warm up or lazy session, after a few heavy falls my transition confidence is waning. Very few friends that still skate.
Skill level, some days I got it some days I don't. Still learning every session.
Edit: Back to the Future was what got me into skating. Someone else mentioned this and growing up that was true for nearly all my skate friends.
