I need to post a pic of myself on here. It's funny, I always think Im getting this huge air, but then when I ask my wife how high I got, she shows me about 3 inches with her fingers. Funny thing is she isnt joking. Im bringing a camera next time, I'll probabbly be shocked at how low I am.

Luis, that's too obvious. I use 24.

On one hand this thread motivates me to try new moves and on the other it depresses me. I'm 31.16666666 it's time for renewed optimism I suppose.

Leo, get lost.

Very cool thread, and very cool pics of everyone! Sometimes I feel a little old in, what I thought, was a younger sport - not anymore. 38 years young. Great inspiration!

46 and holding. Heck, I have a 24yo daughter and 17yo son. My crew is mostly 20's and 30's, with a couple exceptions (other old farts like me!). I try to keep up with them. That is probably why I get hurt once in a while. Only as old as you feel? Well, somedays I feel old, some I don't. Got my new 05 VLX on order. Better get into shape now that I am getting a real wakeboard boat.

Two years ago my dad spent a week at Hansen's Wakeboard camp for his 50th Birthday. We took 15 sets in 5 days and he never missed a one, even though the majority of our group had to b/c they were too sore by Wednesday.

My body turns 50 this year but my mind is much younger (wife says hardly used). I still have flashbacks from the 70's but at least I have some pics to remind I was there.

31. I've been skateboarding since I was 13 but pretty much just the longboard for the last few years. My six year old son is getting into skateboarding now so Pop has to show him a few tricks now and then at the skate park. Buying him and my 12 year old daughter wakeboards for Christmas though so we'll expand the repertoire a bit.
