I finally started hitting boxen this season (I did it a couple of times end of last season but didn't make a habit of it). I finally did a boardslide this month just days after my 55th birthday. So age isn't a showstopper. But it does cause you to think more about the consequences.
Sean, you didn't say if the box was a streetstyle, ride-on, or gapper. A small 8-foot rideon with not too much slope is the way to start. Almost no downside. I've actually cratered a couple of times coming off the heelside, and as long as it's not a hardpack day, it's not really painful. Just cold.
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
