After a 38 year break, I started to skate again. At 15 I lived on a skateboard then got a motorbike and everything changed but I always had a passion for skateboards.
I don’t want to jump off the stairs or slide down rails like the street skaters of today but just roll around smooth undulating concrete. It’s the nearest thing to perpetual motion with the aid of gravity and weight transfer that can glide you along and give a feeling like no other, you can forget about the gas bill. This is my video diary of me starting to skate again.
