An impolite question
From OW Owners Group on Facebook last year.
I believe 39 was the average age.
I am 47 years young, awaiting two XR,s. This will be my first OneWheel experience.
I’m 29, ride mostly pavement but like trail/off-road riding a lot as well.
Welcome and the XR is great way to start OW’n for sure.
I'm 42. Skated a lot as a kid, went dead for a bit then started things back up late 20's/early 30's with stuff like snakeboards and Freelines until OW+ came along. I mostly take mine on dirt and gravel trails, sometimes grass. I don't get near the roads because ppl around here text way too much while driving and there's no sidewalks.
Put me down for "old enough to afford a OW, young enough to buy one"; or maybe "old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway."
By the way, I just showed my OW to a dear friend of mine today. He was really tempted to try it. He used to ski and rollerblade but now he just jogs and "spins". If I bring it to the beach, he would most certainly try it. He turns 80 at the end of May!
Thank you all for your responses. I'd love to hear about the 80 year old's impressions of riding a OW.
64 years old...I have been riding my ONEWHEEL for 2 years... I don't do many riding tricks, but I trick my Onewheel into a SPIDER on Halloween...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PISBU1lWRb8&t=37s
Also I trick my OneWheel into a SLEIGH and ride it as the Grinch in a X-mas parade... for the last 2 years..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZrXlEkTg2A&t=3s
I have my Yorkiepoo Dog ride on it when I am at the Park..
And, I have made flying fins out of $7.00 Knee Pads purchased at Home Depot..http://community.onewheel.com/topic/7732/flying-fins-made-in-my-garage-for-about-10-dollars/14
magicjay...the ONEWHEEL MacGuyver
ps....I love seeing the Magic that other OneWheelers are able to do with their BOARDS.
I’m going to be 44 in a few weeks
Mountain biking since the early 90’s and place hockey all the time but never skateboarded or snowboarded
Saw somebody in Hermosa Beach riding a Onewheel and thought that looks cool
You don’t get old playing
You get old when you stop playing!!
Old guys rule!
