In my younger years about 1975 thru 1985 did everyday. I still do some these days and I get some weird looks and thumbs up from people. Probably thinking that old man is going to break himself. One of my favorite boards was the Logan Earth Ski with Gull Wing trucks and Kryptonic wheels, though I had many of them. Spent most of my time at Kona Skateboard Park in Jacksonville Fla. I miss being younger and those days.

Some cruising on the Sector 9 longboard, no hills here but I like to get out and carve the neighborhood sometimes. Skated Kona a good bit when I was younger.

How is it now? I started skating there shortly after it opened. Heard it's really big.

I love longboarding. I ride a gravity 57" board. Gotten up to about 35mph then crashed hard. Didn't help I was holding into my buddies van lol. A loaded board of some kind will be my next board.

The board I've been borrowing is a Loaded Flex 1 Dervish with Paris trucks....not sure what wheels but on the softer side. I'm not into high speed, just cruising and a few mild declines.
By buddies have the gloves and many different boards, they can do some pretty cool stuff.

I started skating when I was about 11 or 12 years old, I'm 40 now (yea, 4****ing0) and still skate when I can. I will never hang up my board, no sport, physical activity or hobby has ever come close to giving me the joy, passion and outlet for individual expression that skateboarding has. Not snowboarding or mountain biking, and certainly not "grown up" sports like running or golf, nothing. Now, that said, maybe it's a regional thing, maybe it's an age thing [GetOffMyLawn] but every time I see a hipster ******kid on a long board I just want to slap him upside his stupid poser head. [/GetOffMyLawn] I hope it's just a local thing and not representative of the scene as a whole but 90% of the time these kids are carrying their boards. srsly?!

Its gotten quite big.
Few years back when I used to skate I used to go there all the time. Fun place. Was never really good at all the tricks and **** so I just carved up the bowls.

Longboard pro tip:

Everyone on campus hates you.
