Age of the MAS'ers left here

Postby fogiezboy » Tue Oct 29, 2019 5:55 pm

We haven't done this for a while and as this place isn't as popular as it was due to people being too old to skate be interesting to check out the ages of the dudes left here,me.. sprightly 54 ..- .

I am 41 but I stopped posting because my back kept getting hurt so i stopped skating, but now my wife wants to start so I had to take her to the park a few times and rather than just stand around giving useless advice I got the old board out again and some new £5 bearings. I am still at exactly the same level I was 2 years ago, maybe even slightly better.

But think how much better you'd be with £10 bearings!

This is the only place where I am the youngest. 39. and a half!! Hahaha.
Actually I was skating with a 60 year old Chinese guy today. I was stoked. He is riding the carver board thing and having a great time. He rides with his daughter, who is about my age. Inspiring.

I turned 58 in May but sad to say I’ve not been on board since then. I’m determined to get on board at least some time each year. I want to be able to say I was skating into my 60s.

See the bearing thread in MAS, it’s part of legend around here.

Alec.. as in Insta's Big Alec?

I get lost / confused with the username differences between here and there.

(Actually.. lets just leave it at 'I get lost / confused')

Edit: I'm going to back that last statement up with the fact that I just checked Insta and that username has changed.

God. I'm only 47. :shock:

I assumed as much - your rollerskates avatar was another clue, Alec.

Might not know you IRL, but have hung around in similar internet circles for a while now. :)
