The only thing I've done is cruising or more like commuting on my brothers old longboard for some years. That longboard was more of a bad-quality downhill board so it wasn't that fun riding it. This summer I bought my first like, really good longboard (loaded dervish sama) and I've been cruising and carving with it. I started watching a lot of longboard videos and realized that I really want to learn how to slide and do several tricks. Now, doing tricks with a longboard is hard, and my board is a long one with smaller kicktails so I haven't dared trying anything yet.
But with the new interest for tricks and stuff I also started watching regular street skating videos and I love them sooo much. Like, before I was only interested in longboards and now I really want to learn how to skateboard but I have never tried that before. And I'm a shameful person (I don't know if you say it like that lol), like I think everything is awkward (working on that).
Do you think I should start skating even though I haven't done it before? And do you think that I actually could get good at it even though I'm at this age? I feel like most people got into it when they were way younger. Also, I don't know any other who skates other than this guy that I like and if he would find out that I would like to start skating he would totally dump be thinking that I'm trying too hard lol. Like, I kind of found out that I love skating thanks to him and I could feel how he thought that I only starting liking out just to impress him and he is big on individuality..
Sorry, this ask is a mess. But I'm a mess so deal with it hahah
I just turned 19 by the way

You're not too old. But take EVERY safety precaution with pads and helmet.
My friend's fiance died striking his head falling off a longboard.0
