just over 20 for me too.  got my first board on boxing day 1986, and, since it was a snowy winter, actually got to use it in the first week of 1987...

I didn't want to add another topic, but yesterday marked 20 years on a skateboard for me.  It was so damn windy I ended up leaving after an hour, but I had a blast, as always.
yeah im at 22 years i think, ive always had a board but really started skating about 1986.

If I hadn't stopped I'd be at 20 years.  From 13 to 22 then starting back up at 28.  I can honestly say that I have a better time rolling around the park now than I ever did growing up.  I was never very good at skating, but now it totally doesn't phase me like it used to.

does the benz take diesel?

my friend has a 1950's something benz that runs on diesel. its kind of a pain the ass, but his car is sweet.

No.....it's a 6 cylinder that runs on regular unleaded.....it's in good shape and pretty small as in 1975 the body style gained some weight and became a little more bulky than the previous years.....it almost reminds me a bit of an early BMW 2002 but a Mercedes instead......I'm going to check it out tomorrow afternoon.....I'll let you know what's up with it when I get the chance....

also......How have you been Mikey?

I joined the club just days ago. Started in '91. I can do every trick I could do in high school and plenty that I couldn't do then. golgo13's vid was inspiring indeed. I wouldn't be surprised to see Danny Way still megaramping well into his 40s and beyond.



Skate videos have been downhill ever since 411VM #20

I'm 27.  Landed my first ollie on Rosh Hashanah '89.  Got my first real board in May 1990--a Naked I bought from this dude who lived in my neighborhood.  1992-95 were the best years.

Funny to think how all those years of skating led only to prolific message board posting.

Damn, same here... I skated through '85 without knowing about the industry, or any formal trick knowledge. When 86 came around, I got saturated in it.
