Age Is But a Number
« on: February 22, 2019, 06:14:11 AM »
How old are your favorite skateboarders?

I always get shocked to realize a skateboarder is currently 42 years old

(I’m pretty sure Reynolds is 42? Born in 1977?)

How old does that make Gino Iannuci or Chico Brenes? Those guys were established in the early 90’s when Reynolds was a kid still...

How old is everybody?

26 going on 40

Most of my favorite skaters are around my age which is depressing.

R. Kelly and Aaliyah vibes.
it's funny, Reynolds didn't get fame til later but he's possibly older than Carroll and maybe the same age as Chico and some of them. Kelch was older, Rick Howard must be older [Blockhead was 89, right?].
most of the golden era pros are 41-44 now. Ricky Oyola and Puleo are a tad older.

Bobby Worrest, the one true Bobby, is what like 34? so that's the answer. The answer for everyone.

My favorite skaters tend to be mid-twenties-ish. I like guys like Louie and Ishod who are good enough to skate everything and young enough make it look easy.

I just turned 34 and am basically just as good as I've ever been, as most pros my age have been falling off for a few years. I'm practically flow level by now.

Reynolds was from Florida. With so much of the industry based in Cali, a bunch of guys based in SF or So-Cal became pros pretty young. Carroll was 17 when Girl was started and had been pro for like 4 or 5 years at that point. No one ever expected this longevity. Carroll is two years older than Reynolds though, but Reynolds wasn't a big name until like 97, while at that point Carroll had been a big name pro for like 6 years. Chico is the same age as Reynolds.

I think Rickk was the oldest of the people who started Girl, and he was 19 or so.

Check the date on your search results. Use math.

uhhh those are right ages. Easier method: check date of birth. reference that date with the current time. Date of results shouldnt matter.

Reynolds DOB: June 6 1978 (40)
Worrest DOB: May 16 1986 (32)
