    I did a lot before I got a car. I don't really much anymore unless it's an evening out with the girls at a skate park.

    I used to skate, but my legs, knees, and ankles etc. can't take it now, particulary the left one :(  Damn our uneven pavements :mad 

    I still wistfully look at skaters sometimes though.

    If you decide to take it up again, 10,000 bonus points are yours if you wear the famous Megs mask!

    I fortunately never did a faceplant, but the first time would be with the mask on! It survived remarkably well, so I'm not putting it in any undue risk, it's going on safe display till next year.

    I won't be taking it up again, to avoid temptation I sold my board. It was sitting goading me into riding it again, kinda wish I'd kept it as keepsake :(

    I used to skate, gave it up when I went to university. Haven't really had the time/can't be bothered to get back into it.

    I never had a great sense of balance.
    my Bro-in-law still owns the old-as-F**K banana thin skateboard he got as a kid.
    never got the hang of that one or the newer wide boards.

    still, i wish i could do it. (these days, trust me, YOU DON'T WANT ME TO, LOL.)
    i don't knock kids and teens who get the hang of it.

    maybe i should buy a RAZOR....

    I used to. I broke both of my ankles when I was 19 and can't flip the deck any more.

    Last time I rode I skidded on a rock and bailed face first. Had a nice piece of gravel lodged into my hand. We have a couple of decent skateparks around here. A lot of them have closed, especially ones that were attached to a shop. I'm not certian if the one at the Major Taylor Velodrome is still open or not. That one was smooth concrete and allowed for some crazy speed.

    My uncle was skateboarding years ago and he wiped out and his bone went right through his skin on his leg, the pics were nasty.


    He got it all fixed up and went right back to skateboarding, lol.

    I used to skateboard, but I really prefer BMX bikes. I like to go off road, too much.

    My bike gets used more like a single speed mountain bike, these days.

    I liked skating a lot when I did it, I mostly just carved the bowls at the local skatepark where I used to live.

    Actually, I fucking loved it. I live near another bowl now, I might get up early on Saturdays and give it a crack again. Probably my skull :3
