Old man skateboarder problems: At home on Saturday night doing work for my job, had to leave the session early to do so. I swore there was a time when I swore I'd never be that guy...technically I don't even have to be here either- I'm not on the clock, I'm just doing work (and constantly distracting myself from it by posting here). My friends are all either still skating or heading out to the bars.


And does anybody have the link of that dude well into his 30's doing like double kink rails and shit that was in the other thread? Dude is like my hero.
Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is “YES”
I quit skating for a time due to piling out

Street in Hudson is terrible. Super crusty and low impact. But I make do when I can...there's a decent concrete park 20 min south of me in saugerties that I plan to hit up once the spring comes. But it's lookin like as whole lotta snow between now and then.

Saugerties is pretty fun man!  If I'm still around when the snow melts hit me up and a few of us will make the drive down and skate it with you!

No doubt man. I'm hoping for some melt-off so I can session it sooner!

So I signed up just to reply to this topic.  Its good to know that there are other older skaters out there still, in fact its inspiring to know that people still love skating after such a long time.  I think I am definitely most stoked on older skaters who still come out and have a good time. That gets me way more excited than any videos coming out today.  I have noticed that many posters on the forum grapple with having to accept age/time limitations to their ability on skateboard.  It is a little bit comforting to me to learn that I am not the only person to feel this way.  I am a 35 year old skater in Denver area and I guess I will post a link to my old man skate footage that I filmed last year. 

  (I got rained out so I didn't get to try everything I wanted to.)

Any way thank you guys for shredding!

back from holiday, glad to see the thread still going!

bv and skyler: congrats! filming a real street part at 40 is no small feat, just like filming one in one day.
I'll try to post some shit in 2014 too....I've stuck to tranny for the last 15 years but the Magenta vids got me hyped to film some downhill cruising stuff!!

and while on the topic of old rippers: I cannot believe how hard guys like Hosoi and Miller still go.... inspiring for sure.

I've got a 9 month old with a recently diagnosed genetic disorder and some nasty weather to deal with myself.  I try and make it out when I can, but it's been really really tough lately.  Hang in there, you'll get back in the saddle soon enough!

i've seen him skating a few times at the Cove in Santa Monica.  dude has a respectable street game and serious pop.   was never a fan of his music but respect that he loves skating

also saw Laura Dern there too once (their kids skate).  think they are divorced now though, unless i'm mistaken

fuck Satchel, that's gotta be super tough. hope everything turns out good for you.
Spike: congrats!

as for me, my second son is now 16 months. it's a blast seeing them play together but having more than one than kid really takes a dent out of your skating/personal time!
My first son is 5 and a half, and not too interested in skating, but maybe in a few years.........we'll see! I hope I get to do sessions with both of them.

Satchel, that sounds tough. Good thing is that its been discovered pretty early on. Gives you more time to adjust and get your head around the "problem". My oldest is highly allergic to milk and eggs so we have to be heavily aware of all that he eats. He is 4 now so going to nursery and other kids houses and its pretty worrying when you are relying on other people to deal with a possible anaphylactic shock. Just got to remember to support each other through the tough times, when it comes to kids you tend to forget about each other sometimes.

Paraquat, best thing to do is go with what you feel is best. You wont break it but common sense in parenting is a must. Enjoy the crazy hormones.

Frenchie, My oldest loves watching skate vids and playing with, not on, his setup. I'm counting on him to get skating so I can take him out for a roll.

Just thought I would share A part I filmed this year for my 40th birthday.
All this is from this year.
Thanks for all the inspiration you guys give me, this topic keeps me rolling for sure.


Great part, inspiring in turn. The slappy crooked grind on the ledge into the bank was real nice.
stoked!

BV - That was one of the best things I've seen in a long time. So damn good and so damn inspiring. Keep killing it homey!

Old man question-- woke up two days ago with what I can only imagine to be a pinched nerve in my shoulder.  The pain is pretty localized to the front of my right shoulder and about the size of a golfball.  Raising it above 45-50 degrees and the pain increases dramatically.  I looked on the internet and got a variety of responses, but figured I'd ask here too-- how long is too long before going to see someone?  The pain is not getting worse, but it's just there.  I tried to skate a parking garage a couple days ago and even impact on ollies was aggravating it though and going to the gym is out of the question with where the nerve is.  I was thinking about a week before checking in with a chiro or a doc.

For me it always depends on the amount of pain. If it's keeping me from sleep or being able to perform daily activities after 3 or more days I'll go see a doc. Have you tried the old RICE? (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation.) I find, especially for the last several years that ice helps a lot. I use the ice-hot soak-ice quite a bit on my knees and ankles and it makes a huge difference. If after doing that it's something that a couple of ibuprofen can't alleviate I'll go to the doc. I do think due to the amount of abuse skateboarders put themselves through we have a higher pain tolerance than a lot of people. I walked around on a broken ankle for two months because it was just "sore" and I though I had just rolled it. The Dr. thought there was something really wrong with me, he didn't understand how I could deal with the "pain". In reality though I had put a brace on it, and just limping around, really not all that different from what he did, except for the cast and crutches.

Admittedly I've been pretty bad with the ice and compression because of where the pain is.  I've iced it and we have a wrap that will work, but when it's on I can't do shit and I'm impatient.  Sigh.  I guess I just need to completely take the day off.

Docs are the same with me.  I have a really shitty back and it goes out every year for a few days.  Once I couldn't even get up so I went to the doc and he was all, "Holy shit man, I can actually see the muscles jumping in your back."  You just get used to it, but once you get it taken care of you're like, "How the fuck did I put up with that for so long!?"

Thanks man.

When I get cramps or knots like that the main cause is dehydration. Try drinking an abundance if water and cut out the coffee and soda for a day.

Appreciate the support from you dudes. And spike, the toughest thing next to dealing with the problem itself is finding the time, energy, and sensitivity to make sure our own needs are met as individuals, and as a couple. But we are managing. He's got a genetic defect that causes retinal dystrophy from birth, rendering him essentially blind for all intents and purposes. It's a tough pill to swallow, but not insurmountable. I actually started skating again after over a decade off the board right around the time we began the road towards diagnosis and it's been a huge help as far as decompression and stress relief are concerned.

Dealing with other peoples lack of awareness as you describe in your case is something we will have to get used to I suppose...
