skateboarding saved my life

Recommended Posts

Anyone here start skating at an older age? Moved to a new city recently and just picked up a board and just cruised around and did shitty ollies. I tried to skate when I was younger but didn't have the patience and am realizing I had pretty severe anxiety that discouraged me from a lot of things. Any tips starting out? Not expecting to get really good but I'm already having a lot of fun

Skate by yourself until you get skate buddies that you feel comfortable trying stuff around. Then you will progress quite quickly.

What shoes do you guys skate? I like the look of blazers, busenitz, half cabs, and the matchcourt slips but care more about comfort and durability than I do aesthetics. Currently wearing authentics and can tell these won't last through me trying to learn how to ollie.
