I ride longboards (skateboard) and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in trying. It's a great feeling, pumping along miles of paved rail
trail or similarly flat terrain, rarely or never putting your foot down to push, or carving back and forth down hills, wind in your face, the sound of
the wheels...a very soulful experience.
Oh yeah, I didn't start until I was 36, so don't anyone think you're too old to try.
Longboarding is the skating thats cool for us "old farts" to do, and I have plenty of company.
Try it! Your only regret will be that you didn't try it sooner.
edit to add: Sorry for digging up such an old, dead post.
