A few weeks ago, my friends and I purchased a used half-pipe off craigslist for $250 bucks. I haven’t owned a skateboard since I was 13 and now, at 35, I’m planning on taking up the sport again. It’s only four feet tall, but standing on the platform, peering over the coping, the drop looks like suicide. Am I crazy? When it stops raining, we’ll find out.
Portland’s Department of Skateboarding has an “old man” night (over 30) on Mondays from 9-11.
