Always stoked to see old folks who are into it! I always make sure to say "I wish my parents were that cool!" when I see a cool looking mom or dad with their kid out having a good time... especially if she looks nice

Now, I'm 26... but I look a lot older, and I just got into it at the start to the season this year. Last weekend I was taking the chair with a kid who was maybe a few years younger than me who said "it's never too late to start!" when I told him this is my first year... reminded me of the scene in Point Break with the kid at the surf shop...

"Hey man, it's cool... a lotta guys your age are takin' it up..."

"I'm 25...

"That's what I mean man..."
