About 4 years now. I'm over gaps though, I just like ledges, occasional tranny, and I pretty much mastered flat ground just from fucking around and learning dumb tricks like nollie hard flips and forward flips. Last two have been more focused on filming and one year filming for a local skate shop called Kore. Filming is basically my life line to skating.
If you wanna peep some videos I've made feel free to do so.
A bit of advice, since I see a lot of people just started, while you're still hyped on it skate as much as you can (all mother fucking day if you can) and just have fun and in no time you'll be pretty damn good and 4 years later you wont regret no trying hard enough. Also, when a trick comes to mind try it even though you think you can't do it or are afraid to fall. It's just all part of learning.
See you in hell.
