    The main thing for me with getting back into after a long absence is building my confidence up; it's like all my tricks are still there (except for things like high ollies, those type of tricks are just gone) but it's the confidence to try it. I find I can succeed if I just try. My gap ollies are getting better, that was my main thing BITD so that's been a plus. Additionally, the problems with my knee seem to have healed; this was huge for me, as I didn't want to do anything that would cause me to have to compress a whole lot and wreck my knee even more.
    The main thing I would tell everyone getting back into it, young or old, is just spend time on the board. Push around, get used to the feeling of the board and what it does. Tricks will come in time.
    Those who hurt others never remember; those who bear the scars never forget...

    I guess I should do one of these. I'm Michael, 21 years old. Live in wilmington, nc. I'm studying physics and chemistry and I make music(folk/jazz/blues) and obviously skateboard. I like to smoke weed and watch cartoons, read books and manga, hang out with my girlfriend at basically every moment I'm not working or in class or skating. Most people think I'm a hipster even though I don't listen to hip music or do any other hip things. I guess that pretty well sums it up

    Hi! 20, female and from the east of England..
    never skated in my life but am big into surfing, so wanted something to do in the colder months and for when I'm not by the sea. Bought myself a penny just for cruising and their portability, but feel like maybe I should have got myself something a little bigger now..

    I'm not sure how often this is viewed anymore, but here goes nothing. My name is Caelan, and I have been skating for about 6 months, and I thought I'd go online to discuss and learn more about it. I enjoy a lot of music and retro games. That's pretty much me in a nutshell.
    Current Setup:

    Primitive 8.125
    Bones SPF Clears 54mm
    Bones Swiss Labyrinth bearings
    Indy Hollows
    Mob Grip
    Shortys hardware

    Hey,

    My name's Saab, hailing from London, UK. Am 25, used to skate but haven't in about 7 years due to a bad lower back injury. Am looking to get into something a bit more relaxed than the street/ stair sets I used to skate, probably longboarding and just cruising.

    I'm Tyler, 23, from Nova Scotia, Canada. Started skating when I was a kid and then rediscovered my love for it in my 20's. Just got my first boardslides this week and I've been both progressing and skating more than I ever have. I'm always down to learn more and interact with new people so this site is fun to spend my time on. Working on getting good enough that I feel like I can get some footy worthy tricks for the footy section. Other than that I'll probably be lurking every interesting thread I see and posting whatever comes to mind.

    !Greetings from Luxembourg!

    Actually i was skateboarding (almost) every day when i was younger. I finally bought a complete yesterday after i had a lot of fun watching skate videos the last 2 weeks and thinking about the good old times, skating around, meeting people and having fun ^^

    I'll try this evening if i am still able to put the 2 feet on the board without breaking my bones ;) Due to the s...t weather I'll go to an indoor skatepark in Hollerich, near the city center of Luxembourg http://www.skatepark.lu/2010/04/indo...ark-hollerich/ which was rebuilt in 2010 and looks pretty good actually. They also build a new outdoor skatepark in the city center which looks absolutely fabulous (!!!) http://www.skatepark.lu/2016/07/skat...ss-luxembourg/

    Here's my setup (not the best gear i know, but i didn't want to spend 200 or more before i'm sure that i'll stay on skateboarding for a while)
    - Globe Banger 8.125" deck
    - Tensor Mag TEN 5.25" trucks
    - Globe 52 mm wheels
    - Globe ABEC 7 bearings
    - Philipps bolt pack

    In the past, i was able to shove it, kickflip, heelflip, double heelflip, varial flip, 360flip (not good though), etc., like already said, i'll just try to not break my bones this evening on the basics, like standing on the bord ... ;)

    (i'm sorry for my bad english)

    Hey, all. I'm Brandon. 27 years old. Live in Utah. I mainly ride those long-ish type skateboards down hills at speed. Currently 4 semesters into my Computer Engineering degree. There's a skate park near my college campus so I picked up a plank to see whether I git gud or break myself there first. I can almost ollie on a good day. That's about it.
