    Well, I started back when I was 12. But then I stopped to play rugby and do county swimming.

    Show more will power than me and carry on going! Its not embarassing to start again now, if you have the desire then go for it.

    I started a while ago, when I was about 13 I guess. I don't really have the time to do it now (I'm 16 now), with exams, schoolwork etc, although I try to keep it up, even if it's just a half hour session every 2 weeks in the garage. I think it would be a real shame to have wasted all that time.

    They never show that ad anymore on the BBC... The new adverts are good, but I liked the ones of the skateboarding, the hot air balloon, the club etc.

    13/14, quit at 17, started again about a month ago (at 19).

    Landed my first impossible yesterday :) Was good, only nailed my nads once too which was good going.

    I remember when I was told of story of crushed velvet, candle wax, and dried up flowers. The figure on the bed all dressed up in roses, calling.beckoning to sleep offering a dream. The words were as mystical as purring animals. The circle of rage the ghosts on the stage appeared. The time was so tangible I\\'ll never let it go. Ghost stories handed down, reached secret tunnels below. No one could see me. I fell into yesterday. Our dreams seemed not far away.

    I am 13 now and have just started again.
    I used to skate, but just as a means of transport, not interested in tricks or anything.
    But now i am learning how to skate properly, tricks an' all.
