I am 37 and started again skateboarding one month ago, after a 20+ years break.

Go for it, you won't be disappointed !
Even without doing any trick, I was immediately so happy to just ride and cruise in the park/bowl.

One advice for the setup : personally I was not sure about my motivation so I bought a cheap complete at ~ $100, but after few weeks I felt limited by the poor bearings, and wheels that are way to soft and small for the big bowl I am skating. So I am buying better parts now.

If you were a decent skater, probably it is good to take right away a good setup. Maybe you should go to a skateshop and explain what kind of skateboarding you would like to do, they will have good advices regarding deck width, truck width+height, rising pads (or not), wheels compound and diameter, bearings ....

So, when exactly will I expect the King of the Road webisodes to be published for watching? Is there a specific date or do they get posted whenever the editor(s) get around to it?

I'm 29 and I'm learning how to skate. Yeah I know its kinda old to start skating but I'm not doing this to get sponsored or anything like that. I'm doing this because it's just something I've been wanting to do. I'm just doing this for myself. I go to the skate park close to my place. I skate from about 7 am till around 1 pm or until the people who really skate start to show up. I leave when people show up cause I dont really feel like embarassing myself. Though now I'm having thoughts of just going and fuck it if I embarass myself. I mean I wont learn if I dont practice right? What are all your thoughts on this? You guys think I'm too old to learn? Or should I be like "fuck it, dont really care what anyone thinks"?

Hey guys, just wanted to say thanks for your support, and not beating up on a 28 yr old dude trying to finally play out some of the skate fulfilled fantasies in my head Smiley

It is 25 days in, just a bit less than half way through and....well, I wasn't sure at all how I was going to feel even at this pt in time. I am truly humbled by some of the talents I've come across and have humbled myself by dedicating the main portion of my day just for the HOPES of learning the tricks these kids make seem menial. So much talent, and so much passion being channeled in a positive light is what I feel when I'm around some of these guys. Just like music became for me-which is now the reason I can survive, eat, etc-- These kids are putting in the same soul. And whether they end up going somewhere with it, or just applying the passion they developed from it to a next walk of life is a beautiful thing.

I will continue my progr4ss and you can follow my continued blog by clicking this link.   

This will be my last post  in this topic but I encourage you to keep following.  I was lucky enough to run into Dylan Witkin's (up and coming skater, check em out if you haven't already)  older brother whose employed by goskate.com   We got to talking, as he noticed my intensity for learning was a not ormal lol. Once I told him what I was trying to do, he asked me to show what ive got so far.  When I did a kick flip and a few others, he asked if I could heelflip.  Well, I said no, cuz I had never tried one. told me I could and to try and I just mucked. told him I was scared of getting nutted and I didn't wanna learn this trick..long story short, he made me keep trying despite the scared nuts and I landed a perfect 'bolts' 3rd try.
 he said 'told ya so' and actually  offered to take me under his wing at no charge..which was just super incredible of him to do and offer. Anybody in the Chicago area looking for lessons I highly recommend. I got him landing a kickflip backside tailslide on a rail 3rd try, 1st try while cm recording.   

but for real,

month 2 I'm GONNA FUCK SHIT UP.   Shocked
