Over 40 and ripping

Gallery of 11 40+ skateboarders. F*cking Ron Allen is 47 and still hoping onto rails. And Miller's fastplant at Burnside on the punk wall... Some of these guys skate better now than they did 20 years ago.
Suddenly I'm not panicking about turning 35 later this month.

Fastplant. Go up for a backside air, as your board leaves the lip, place your back foot on the coping and boost yourself into the air, place foot on board, rotate and re-enter the tranny as close to the lip as possible without hanging up. Sort of like a boneless but with the back foot...
