So, After seeing a image set of Skateboarding Maids by Suzushiro, i decided to order trucks, wheels and bearings for my old deck.
I've been cruising around for few weeks now, have tried simple tricks like Shuvit and Ollie, but haven't gotten the hang of them yet.
I've fallen few times but thankfully i haven't hurt myself too badly.
Anyone else here who skates?
Tips on how to build up confidence? and is it too late to start when i'm pushing my 30's.
i'm a late skater too, I've been doing it off and on for years now, got back into it earlier this year when an old friend gave me his board, i'm far to fat to be doing this properly, but I always try to find a big empty car park, and just find a nice flat section and practise on there, work your way up, try olling over cans or bottles first, once it clicks it will be second nature, but its that first moving ollie that is the toughest (or I found it to be)
