On Thursday I'll be 34. I've been skateboarding since I was 11. What I have found over the years is that you always progress and regress at the same time. I don't do 13-stair handrails or ollie down huge gaps anymore. The truth is that when you get older you don't heal as fast. In that sense, I have regressed. With snowboarding, I don't hit huge kickers anymore either. Same reason. However, with both skating and snowboarding my flatland, curb, bench, box ability is better now that it ever was (and I used to be a sponsored amature skateboarder) b/c I spend more time on it than hitting huge-ass stuff. Tony Hawk is pushing 40 now. Danny Way is exact same age I am (well, he is a day older), and they still rock the party harder than anyone else. The key is just do what your comfortable with. One day that might taking mellow runs down blues, the next it could be working 540's in the park. The mountain is your canvass, paint it the way you want to, and you'll always have a smile.
