back on a skateboard at 42

well I've decided to start skating again after 23 years.I thought I would just jump back on but that's not the case.my balance isn't what it used to be.I haven't bailed yet,but I'm not ready for the skateparks.I'm going to build a mini half pipe in my garage so I can get used to the transition before I go to the park and get laughed at by 7 year olds.It's tough to be a newbie again at 42 but I'm sure it'll come back.The only fear now is missing work because of broken bones.I'm glad I found the site though. It's good to know there's other guys in the same class is me getting back into it.I'm still not sure what kind of skateboard I want. I don't know if I should go with the new thin ones that all the guys are riding or the old school fat boards I used in th 80s.The newer small board seem kinda scary but course I havn't been on the board in like 23 years .
