Not bound by age, Neal “The Dude” Unger looks to skateboarding as a means to align his mind and body. “As I gain more balance in life, I also gain more balance on my skateboard” says the 60-year-old California-based skateboarder. An atypical example of a lifelong learner, Unger continues to master tricks in the book while also inventing new ones, such as the bounce flip seen via his YouTube Channel. In this short clip, Unger speaks on how he finds therapy in skateboarding, while also proudly noting that he’s still a beginner, working on improving his skills everyday. Sponsored by Sabre Trucks, Unger proves that you can never be too old to pick up a new hobby. Enjoy the inspiring clip above and share your thoughts below.
