Hi what is your name and how old are you?

Elizabeth Stuart, and I am nearer 70 than 60.

I started riding a skateboard in my 20s. My nephew and niece had skateboards, I had a go and that was the start.   I used to skate to workon a plastic board; my nick-name was ‘Skate’.

How does it feel to do something as cool as skateboarding?

I’m glad I’m still able to cruise around on a longboard.  I now push with a pole, which makes me a Land Paddler.  

How do your friends and family think about it?

They know I’m sensible – I skate within my limits and wear protective gear.
