    If I could think of a word that means, "impressed" and "scared" at the same time, that'd be that video :)

    Crazy crash... lucky they were wearing motorcycle helmets (!!)

    I hit my early 30s and realised that being unfit and overweight was having serious effects on my health. So, I tried out some sports. I've always sucked at team...

    Not certain but pretty sure they'd fit. I've made some crazy longboard/skateboard hybrids and the wheels and trucks always fit - need thick spacers to prevent massive wheel bite, though :)

    You're not doing bad at all, Leo. Took me 18 months to learn how to Ollie and even then I can't do it rolling at any speed.

    I need more practice. haha.

    $180k in five years is a joke. They'd spend that just on lawn mowing!

    Do you have a contact on the city council who's willing to take this on?

    I'm the first to admit that I'm a complete newbie, but I've lost about 20Kgs since I started skating. (even if it is mostly longboarding, haha)

    Perhaps also buy some ceramic bearings if you're going to be riding a lot in the wet as you'll soon get sick of replacing rusted-out steel ones.

    My ankle decided to give way on me just as I was starting a foot-brake and I came off at some speed... and skidded along the ground for about 5 metres using the skin on my leg as a brake. Not fun.
