I'm 26 and I bought a skateboard last year but I didn't use it until today, I tried skating around the block. I did fall down once right in front of some people but I just kept going. I think I'll ride the skateboard to my appointments tomorrow and keep trying. How old, in your opinion, is too old to be skateboarding?

by looking at professionals they are in their 40's and 50's they still do it. Tony Hawk landed 900 at the age of 48!

Never to old. Do what you want and stop caring what other people think is the normal standard guideline for you to live your life by.
