Remz Pro rider Chris Haffey has been around the world and back again touring with Nitro Circus. There’s a reason for this, because Haffey is an absolute machine when it comes to going big or going home.
Chris Haffeys latest video Open Season shows just why the Remz pro is a contracted athlete with Nitro. Click play and see just how big he can go whilst destroying the Mega Ramp.
You’re never too young to learn to ride! Last we we showed you a video of a 60 year old skateboarder shredding his local skatepark and now this week we have the other end of the scale. Let us introduce you to the next big thing in BMX Oscar Perkins!
Oscar is the 2 year old son of BMX rider Leon Perkins, Leon has been riding in our park for as long as we can remember and is his riding is the definition of “go big or go home”. Now his 2 year old son is taking in his dads footsteps and already dropping in quarters on his balance bike! We can only guess how good this kid is going to be by the time he is 15.
One question we get asked a lot is “do you have an age limit in the skatepark” well yes our minimum age is 5 to use the skatepark, but we have no age cap you are as old as you feel in our books. We have a bunch of older riders that continue to shred the skatepark on a regular basis, these guys have been riding for longer than most of our current users have been alive, heck they have kids and some of their kids have kids.
Action sports as a whole is not age bias like most sports, you can continue to do what you love for as long as your body will let you. We all know that participating in these sports is much more than just a bit of exercise, it is a lifestyle, it’s addictive, it helps you forget about all those day to day problems and just cruise around a park without a care in the world. Thats the feeling we all love. There is no age limit on this priceless feeling.
Now there is another type of rider in this equation, the beginner. Who says beginners have to be 6 years old? How about 60 years old. Well Neal Unger shows everyone that it is possible to take up an action sport at the youthful age of 60. This guy is a legend in his own right for pushing his body to the limits to get “that feeling”. Neal Unger has taken up skateboarding at his local skatepark at 60 years old, he is the perfect example of why we love action sports. Now go and show your parents this video and drag them down to the skatepark for a session!!
You’re never to old to skate, you’re are as old as you feel. Keep riding.
