Video: Meet Neal Unger, the 60 year old skateboarder

Meet Neal Unger, the 60 year old who has taken up skateboarding to find mental clarity and physical youth.

Having recently picked up skateboarding, Neal Unger is a 60 year old man who has managed to sum up the main reason every skateboarder I know loves the sport. His outlook on life, combined with the feeling of skateboarding is truly inspiring. He also appears to be pretty good for an old timer! This video is a must watch for anyone who remotely likes the idea of skateboarding. Here’s a few key quotes from Neal to wet your appetite.

“It’s a platform where I can experience the most interesting parts of my mind and then apply that to other areas of my life … How old can I look and yet still act young.”

Keep up the good work Neal! Who knows, maybe we’ll see skateboarding start to trend amongst the older folks out there.
