Bought a skateboard a few weeks ago. Not exactly Tony Hawk yet, but I can at least go a few hundred meters, turn and stuff, without falling off.
Was stopped twice this week with my board at the school gates and got asked for ID. Am I too old for this? :-/
Tarmac isn't great for skateboarding. Flat concrete is better. But marbled/tiled floors are teh best. Sadly this makes the school administrative building the ideal training location… much hilarity will eventually ensue, I'm sure.
