I’m getting older, but definitely not too old to start skating again after 20 some odd years (well, maybe I am). Regardless, I’ve got young kids who are beginning to show interest in skateboarding and have been daredevils on their bikes for some time. We recently bought one of our boys a real, non-kid skateboard for his birthday. This was enough for me to bite the bullet and start building them all a small ramp to learn on.
There’s a lot of danger in skateboarding, and riding anything on ramps, so obviously every parent has to decide when they think their kids are ready for it. Personally, I know my kids are a tad young for it, but I think that gives me the chance to spend time with them, helping them navigate the skills they have to learn to ride safely. Plus, it gives me a chance to keep myself young 🙂
