I too took a skateboarding hiatus until this year. Mine was about 5 years. It has definitely been a re-learning experience for me, but I feel confident on my board now like I did 5 years ago. Worst fall I had was trying to pivot turn on a big 8 foot quarter that has about a foot of vert. I came in to fast, hung up on my turn, and fell straight from the top to the flat. I got some scrapes from it for sure. The scrapes and bruises heal, although admittedly, at almost 30 they take a little longer. However, between riding my skate deck, getting into longboarding, and riding my skimboard, my feet haven't left a board all summer except to go to work. I'm so stoked for winter right now though it's unbelievable. Maybe I should stop watching That's It, That's All everyday.....NAH! I love being stoked for winter!
Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
