So you’re learning to skateboard? Big deal! Well as a 34-year-old woman, who has never really done any proper skateboarding before, yes it is a big deal. Learning any new sport in your thirties is going to be a challenge. Learning a difficult, physical and mentally demanding sport like skateboarding means taking on a huge challenge, and because of this I’ve decided to start a blog about it. I want to use this blog both to document my progress, and the challenges I face learning to skateboard as a female in my thirties and to inspire other women to get involved.
