I've broken 3 boards in 3 weeks. This is the most I've skated regularly in years, and now the most boards I've broken in probably 13 years. This last time, I bruised the fuck out of my heel, and kept skating, but felt super off balance...But I kept pushing it, and broke it kickflipping off a ledge on the last trick I was going to do at the park. I wanted to land it 3 times in a row, and I of course broke it on the third time. The other time was a 360 flip, and the time before that was a big spin.

Being old allows me to just go buy a new board. I'm thankful for that part of being old.

Hey Slap forum.

39 years old.

I haven't posted here since 2010 I think.

I was widowed in May of '10 so obviously that changed things being left alone to raise a 5 year old boy. He's almost 10 now though and some of the dust has cleared.

I've skated a little bit on and off over the last few years but I'm ready for a big comeback this year. Quit smoking cigarettes and starting to feel better than ever.

Props to everyone here,

I have seldom visited Slap Forum but I have become so disillusioned with so much of skateboard media that I felt it was best to seek out where the real discussion is.

39 Years Old, Chocolate Elijah Berle, Thunders, Spitfire. I have skated pretty much through since I was 11. Had a couple of dry years 17-19. Much of the last 10 years I have skated fairly solo.

Have 3 sons, none of them are really interested in skating. Maybe one day. Still read Transworld, sometimes Thrasher but it embarrasses me, the Berries seems like a cult, Ride Channel is watered down skateboarding. The only thing that I read that seems good is Jenkem and Quartersnacks. I am on Instagram not to post but to follow skaters. Watch plenty of skateboarding videos still. Love checking stuff out on Youtube but miss the time when videos actually meant something. Watched Plan B True (fun) loved Supreme Cherry.

144p, I'm almost 20 years younger than you and you're doing some tricks that I struggle with. I can't imagine being in my 40s catching kickflips, no complying gaps, and doing pivot fakies and back D's in lines! Major props

...I know, I don't belong in this thread...but it's pretty inspiring to see what your older guys are pulling off

like butthole sniffer eating that wooly bear caterpillar. woah

I guess I could have posted this in Skate Questions. But who else is gonna know besides old farts.
Common knowledge, every grab changes names b/s vs f/s: indy/frontside, backside/lien, mute/slob.
So what the heck is a backside Stalefish called?

Backside stalefish.


I think the naming rules are rather fluid. True, a backside grab turning frontside is probably a lien, but if you were talking about an Indy/frontside on a straight launcher then "Indy" would refer to an around the foot grab. Similarly I've always been told that mute vs slob was solely about the grab. You can turn frontside or backside but if you "stink bug" it with your front arm, then it's slob. Around the foot, mute (tweak for Japan).

Hello fellow old dudes. Hope that everybody is doing good. Only a few more weeks until spring starts. I can't wait. Woke up today and it was -8 degrees outside. Not fun. I've kinda been feeling like a hermit this winter. Pretty much just go to work and then hide from the cold for the rest of the day and watch old skate videos or organize my shoe collection. I injured both my achilles tendons in the middle of October doing something fairly stupid on my skateboard. So for the last month and a half of decent weather I was basically just able to push around in pain. Feeling better now. Super stoked to be out skating again once the snow and cold takes a hike. I saw some of the younger dudes I helped get into skating this summer out a few days ago skating a parking lot in the freezing cold doing ollies and stuff. Totally reminded me of my group of friends and I 20 years ago skating no matter what the weather was and being happy just to be on 4 wheels. Oh that skateboarding nostalgia.

To all the old heads that posted some footage on the past page or two. Great job guys! You dudes rip! That stuff definitely helps to motivate. I'll be on the ol' shred stick sooner than later. Usually around March weather starts getting decent again for me. Few more weeks, few more weeks ;)

Later dudes!

Im sure I've said it before, but it's rad you film.  It was never part of my program....when I was young only the good guys did it...and when I was older its been more just happy your out skating.  With iPhones now though I should get on it.....truthfully though when I see the footage sometimes it's.....'thank god I never filmed..' i would have quit..

Somtimes I shake my head at myself taking the time to film mediocre tricks at crappy spots.
Others I step back and realize as we get older it helps to have things to work towards, and to have peers that inspire, regardless of skill or style. That maybe in some odd way I am helping get somebody off the couch to roll around a bit because they saw someone else who reminds them of a time when it was frequent and fun.
My ego is pretty minimal and I'm not fishing for compliments by posting myself, I think the number of aging skateboarders is growing and the cliche of turning into a bowl troll or painfully stepping on a board 3 times a year is disappearing. More guys are skating at a higher level into their late 30s than say 10 years ago.
I also have a complex running a shop that I won't turn into the loudmouth behind the counter always rambling about the good old days and barely touching a board anymore.
Today is just fine for me and it keeps me motivated to progress even in small ways.

I'm so glad this thread is still going...This forum is terrible for the most part (admittedly I still come here but don't usually post hahaha), but thankfully most of the bullshit that goes on hasn't made it here.

As for me, I recently turned 40, I blew my shoulder out at work, spent my winter at an indoor park skating smallish tranny, and whatever else...I'm just glad it's spring and I can skate some street and not go anywhere near a skatepark unless I feel like skating a ramp or I visit a new one that I've never been to before. I have a few good friends that I skate with all the time and we're looking forward to some fun times this summer.

Keep this shit going guys.

That's totally proper.

Monday I turn 38. I got kicked out of a curb spot tonight by an old man security gaurd before really even getting warmed up. On a positive note, it doesn't look like it's going to rain tomorrow.
