Yep, Skateboarding Gets Better and More Rewarding When You're Older

Posted by Rob Meronek on Monday, June 2, 2014

Last week was Vern Laird's amazing old guy part that he filmed for his 40th birthday. That was no park shark popa either, Vern's was all real street. This week, we've got another amazing one from friend and many times co-worker of The Boardr, Neal Hendrix, who has been shredding the U for as long as we've all been skateboarding. Both he and Vern have similar quotes regarding filming a part later in life: "It's funny how it's more rewarding at 40 than at 20." Don't quit skateboarding, kids, even through growing up with jobs, girlfriends, bills, and weaker legs. You'll be so glad you stayed committed to rolling. Yep, I'm saying it again: Skateboarding is the fountain of youth. Check out Neal's new, ripping vert part at 41. RIP Brandon Ream.

We're carrying Elephant Skateboards and Neal's deck here at The Boardr Store.
