My feet hurt a lot, and hitting my shins hurt too, but I've never really had sore legs.

i usually pick up some chocolate muscle milk after a heavy day of skating. you can probably find it in most gas station mini-marts. it's a ton of protein to help your muscles recover.

also just drinking powerade/gatorade and eating bananas helps alot because it replenishes all the electrolytes and stuff that you sweat out while you skate. it'll replenish all the nutrients your muscles need to not cramp up and keep on flowin too.

Daily multi-vitamins also help alot if you eat nothing but fast-food and beer as your normal diet, like me.

V8 vegetable juice is also bomb as fuck.

That stuff along with stretching all the different muscles in your legs, like religiously, will help keep those leg pains down. I can't believe how many skaters I've skated with that don't stretch at all before they skate, then they get pissed because they can't land anything. STRETCH! it's like the most important shit ever, i swear to you.
It also just helps you skate better and be healthier too.

I know all you said is that your legs hurt, and you didn't really ask for all this info.. but i'm hyped on energy drink right now and I'm just in love with typing. haha

I think I had aches and stuff when I started (although I mostly remember it being my ankles).

Anyway you should definitely stretch before you skate. What I do is step forward fully with one leg and down on the thigh of it and hold for 10 seconds. I also grab my ankle and pull my leg up so that it touches my bum and hold it for 10 seconds. And thirdly, I stand on a stair and press my heel down for 5 or so seconds which stretches the calf. Obviously do with both legs.

It helps prevent joint injuries as well as muscle. I wish I'd started sooner and maybe I wouldn't have this knee pain from a year ago (admittedly the stretching has DEFINITELY helped).

Make sure you do it every time before you skate. I didn't recently and that day my knee felt bad and I had muscle aches for days after.

If it's really hot out, can't really skate for a long time before your legs cramp up from dehydration. Skate, take a break, skate, take a break. If it still hurts while your skating though, you should probably lay off a day if you can.

I'm a beat up old dude, I'm always sore. Skated hard yesterday and now I feel like I've been tumbling in a dryer full of bricks.

But I love it.

I do this ^

Just like skate and when you get really tired stop by a gas station or something and buy a gallon water.

There was a period when I was chilling with my friends who live really far away so I'd skate like 4 miles there and I'd usually have to skate back. That got me sore :(

yeah i get that alot. its probably cuz i throw myself down a bank thats basically the size of a 7 or 8 every time i go to this park that i skate at alot nowadays. i think ima start stretching. it helps to land shit first try as well. thats what ive been trying to achieve. just to get any big jumps out of the way first try. so i do lots of run ups and shit now.
