Pre-Ordered the OW+. Extremely excited and a bit horrified. What have I done?

@Eliminator as a 46 year-old who rides with both younger and older OW riders, you and @e-ball are right there in the sweet spot. With your backgrounds you'll be carving it up in no time. The biggest issue for me was coming to terms with the fact that OW injuries take my old body longer to heal than when I was a youngster, and all that means is that I wear pads. You're gonna love this thing.

@eelhc A lot of hope for your Onewheel career.
I am 52 and my background looks like your background.
After three weeks , with my new Onewheel, I dicided to make a video around my place in Hawaii.
You can see it on YouTube: https://youtu.be/eHE310NQtEE

@Norm nice video! Really getting itchy for mine to arrive now...I've been "practicing" by standing on a balance board all day at work!

@eelhc Only thing to fear is your future lack of free time.

@eelhc just like you middle age feel more athletic than my buddies, I kiteboard, foilboard, and wake surf. Tried a golfboard on a trip and it blew me away. So I preordered a OW- + today. One guy had one out at the lake earlier this year and broke his leg another guy his shoulder so I am excited but nervous as well. Thanks for the all the newbie information from the other guys.

@groovyruvy We will get injured indeed, when falling. But I'd add that those injuries heal faster thanks to us riding the OW (when we're not falling). The riding keeps our bodies younger in a very peculiar way that few other boards or even sports can. It's one of the benefits of riding the OW that is not talked about much yet but that is certainly there.
I know this may sound weird: OW-ing keeps our bodies younger, but what is the deal if it also causes us to get hurt?
No-brainer to me (assuming injuries remain within reason)..
