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.
