I have been known to skateboard, but of course I’m over the age of 30 and social convention dictates skateboarding is for skater kids and emo teenagers.

Mike sent me a link to a Guardian piece about the new trend for adults to be riding skateboards.
Skateboarding is enjoying a mid-life surge in popularity. The sport that was once the preserve of the cool or alternative is now becoming decidedly mainstream, as evidenced by the fact that adults can now take skateboarding classes. At least they can in Brooklyn.
Maybe I should join a skateboard class, be great to finally learn how to Oli after so many years…
Skateboarding is enjoyable and frankly Manchester city centre is ideal for it, in-between the anti-skating board architecture.
