    I'm 46 and recently started longboarding. I'm not totally new to it in that I used to skate extensively in my youth. I've been hitting the massive concrete parking lots near Boystown on Saturdays as well as a couple of other places. Carving and goofing off basically. It's a blast, but it would be fun to actually skate with others. So if your ok with somewhat of an old? newbie, I'd be interested.

    PS I'm using a 39" Hobie for now, but looking to upgrade very soon.

    I ride an airotica 39" ultra-light "or-something-along-the-lines-of-that-name", 40 degree? paris trucks, lime bigzigs, and some reds. I mostly have done crusing and tried to learn to pump, but failed miserably. I also tried to slide 3 times and I have rolled my left ankle trying to slide, 3 times.

    I'm up for it on Saturday or even Monday since it's a holiday. I play in a band on weekends and we have a gig that I need to be at by 6pm or so on Saturday. If you guys go before that I'll definitely try and make it.

    Just thought I'd post this in case any one wants to check this place out. On Saturday mornings (if it isn't raining) there's a good chance you will find me in the area just north of Dodge and just west of 156th. That's been my go to place lately. I'm usually there sometime between 8am and 11am. Take Dodge to 156th street. Get off on 156th street and go north. Take the first turn left. There is a corporate office right there that says FW Bank on the top of the building. I usually park in one of the south lots at the top of the hill. That area is great on the weekends because there is zero through traffic. The north and south access roads end at a school at the bottom of the hill. Everything in between are corporate buildings and huge lots. Both access roads are great for a long, traffic free cruise. A couple of the lots are not bad either.

    It's hard for me to get out on Saturdays, but I can get out from 9:00 AM to mid afternoon almost every Sunday. Also, I'd be interested in hitting up that parking garage some night.

    I have a feeling it is going to get some convincing to let my mother let me skate with people who have kids.

    I'm going to try and be there at about 8:30 or so unless it's raining or something else unforeseen happens.

    I'm going to be at the place sjsangimino mentioned hopefully no later than 8:30 AM on Saturday. I'll probably be back no Sunday morning as well but about an hour or so later.

    If my memory serves me correctly, that area has some nice, gentle rolling hills, which my newbie ass requires.

    It's out on 156th & Dodge. There was some traffic on Saturday morning due to what looked like soccer practice at the school at the west-end of the loop. I practiced sliding in the Coventry parking lot mostly. Well, until I wedged my board into a storm drain after a failed Coleman on Sunday.

    On the way back home on Sunday, I ran across RanRye and OmahaRider bombing a hill about 3 blocks from my house. It was good to meet some fellow longboarders, but I don't have the descended pair to go down that twisty hill at 40 MPH.
