    I'm 51 and I ate it over the handlebars skiing a steep, iced over bowl Friday night.. Didn't get hurt, hardest part was hiking back up the bulletproof 50 feet to get my other ski. However, I've also pulled a muscle in my back just bending over to buckle my boots in the parking lot or landing a moderate air. When you're old, it's the stupid shit that nobody would expect to cause an injury that gets you more than the actual slams. Heads do concuss easier though because you brain literally shrinks as you age leaving more room in your skull for it to rattle around.

    42 here and getting back into skating after more than quarter of a century off. Quite a few people have remarked negatively about this, my wife thinks I'm having a mid life crisis (which is simply not the case). If I could go back in time, I would not have stopped (I stopped because I thought I was too old...actually considerably younger than you are now).
    Look at it this way...
    am I too old to play tennis...no
    am I too old to surf...no
    is my 84 year old father too old for darts and table tennis...no
    I'm not too old for skateboarding either and your gender doesn't matter. Maybe practice some tricks you can do stationary inside on the carpet or a mat until the weather warms up. Have fun!

    wow some of you are much older than I thought. I didn't even know they had skateparks at the old peoples homes.
    when you fall, you gotta get back up to land the trick.

    Well played sir ...we don't have skate parks, we mostly skate park benches and inside the hall next to the bowling green. Later if you have time, I could use help getting my groceries in from the car and some guidance on how to use this computer thingy.
