If you think you’re too old, not good enough, too different than others on your skate spot, or whatever might be stopping you doing what you’d like to do -only thing, that is time to stop are excuses.
Here’s an example:
Today in Brussels weather has been like a bride (as we say in Finland, sayings usually don’t translate, but I assume this Finglish makes sense), and I wanted to start it by a short mini ramp session. So first thing in the morning, I headed to mini ramp in my neighbourhood being sure it will be empty, as kids should be at school on Thursdays. Well, they weren’t. After seeing there were three teenage boys already on the mini (what time does kids wake up these days!) I almost turned my bike and headed back home. It might have been the sunny, warm morning, or me being persuaded to learn kick-turns, I still went on a mini. Politely (or more like stupidly making myself lesser) asking would there be space for me to skate too. Bien sûr those kids said yes. They’re skaters, and during my 1,5 years skating career, I have not met many skaters who do not give me respect and support for trying, even though my skateboarding attempts are not perfect. This happened today too. As you can hear watching the video above with sounds.
