Yeah, it sucks, but there isn't much u can do. I usually see it as a chance to get better at skating and heal up from the season. Thats the best thing about this sport, every year everyone gets super pumped at the beginning of the season and super bummed at the end.
Last season I got a board and tried to learn how to skate, but... When you go snowboarding, most people on the hill SUCK. If you suck too, you don't really stick out. If you go to a skate spot, most people there are REALLY good. On top of that, they're all 14 years younger than me.
