Too old to longboard?

How old is too old to longboard? I used to skate as a kid, now I'm in my late 30's, and wouldn't mind getting out on a longboard but it seems like a young mans activity.

If you define your life by other people's expectations then you might as well stick another nail into the coffin.

The few people that will gawk at you are also the same that don't care who you are and what you do. So skate away.

I am surprised you found the space to do it. This city doesn't seem like a great place for it since it seems there aren't that many streets to bomb.
That's not a knife!

Since when did "age" become a factor for many things?
Too old to go back to school?
Too old to do something interesting?
Too old for this? Too old for that?

You're never too old, if you're asking it means you're too concerned what other people think of you. Wait until you're 80 and you'll be kicking yourself for asking such a question in your 30's, young pup!

Longboarding is a dangerous sport. Your body doesn't recover as quickly as you did in your 20s or teen years. You need a fearless (some might say stupid) mentality (that many younger guys have)... you're going downhill on a road sliding around corners, hoping there's no car coming the other way... or wipeout right into a tree.
