I've been itching to start skating for months but I'm 18 nearly 19 and I think it's going to be too late, also I don't have friends that would skate with me or learn to start skating, it would be sad as fuck to skate on my own at parks right? Idk.
it sucks to skate alone especially if you're just starting out but why dont you just skate on the streets or sidewalk for now? if the fear of being judged at the park is too much, i dont see why you dont just skate in front of your place. Its really easy to speak to and become friends with people at the skate parks as long as they dont think theyre the shit.
