Describe your longboarding experience

Serious adult longboarder (in my late 40s) looking for other fellow humans to longboard with. Started late in life. Been Longboarding about 5 years, minus one year recovering from a broken ankle... I'm primarily interested in freeriding and dancing. I have a LONG list of tricks/moves I'm currently working on. I'm interested in style more than just speed. I am currently learning to slide better... [Update: I'm now working on pool skating!] Happy to skate with anyone, any age, male or female (but I'm not single). I don't care if you are a beginner that makes me look like a pro, or a pro that makes me look like a beginner... Just be positive!

Do you have a favorite place to ride (it doesn't have to be in Seattle)?

Anywhere I am... Usually, in Edmonds. Parking garages are great when its pouring (rain wheels when its just wet).

Do you have a preferred meetup day and/or time (e.g. lunch hour, evening, weekends)?

11-1pm workdays, anytime after 10am on days off. I have every Monday, Wednesday, and Sunday off at the moment. Sometimes skate late, around midnight! I'm committed to skating all winter, rain or shine! I'm learning to not be afraid of wet roads, and I'm investing in good rain gear. Still haven't found any waterproof skate shoes yet!

Are there any ideas/activites that you have in mind for this group?

Trick trading/swap sessions would be great! Honestly, I'm sort of bored with push sessions (around greenlake, etc). I really want to progress, so if I'm doing flatland stuff, I really want to be working on dancing and tricks, not just exhausting myself by pushing! Would love to just meet other longboarders with a true desire to improve. Would like to see more local interest in dancing here in our area.
