So maybe it’s a midlife crisis but I’m finding myself suddenly interested in Skateboards. Am I too old at 45, having never even touched one before? Who knows! Perhaps it’s because suddenly I’m fitter than I’ve ever been at any time in my life that I might actually be able to ride one without making myself look like a complete idiot.
I’ve seen some electric ones getting around and although I’m sure they are loads of fun if you know what you are doing, they are also reasonably expensive, and also of questionable legality. So if I do get one I’m think start small (and hopefully relatively cheaply).
I’ve also seen Longboards getting around as well. I think if I was to try one that is what I would get. I have no interest in doing tricks or going overly fast, really just interested in it as a way to get around and for a bit of fun but not too much fun. Seems like there’s a myriad of choices. I’ve watched a bunch of youtube videos and of course looking at Ebay to see what’s around. Seems like you can spend from not much, to bloody heaps. Eg this http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BLACKHAWK-40x8-8-8Ply-Maple-Deck-ABEC-7-Longboard-Cruiser-Complete-Skateboard-/112163507405?hash=item1a1d774ccd:g:UMQAAOSw8gVX~sMT just randomly.
Tell me I’m crazy or if you have any ideas or suggestions, fire away
