While most 70 year olds are planning which nursing home has the best bingo community, Lloyd Kahn is bombin hills. Although this 76 Year old may look like Dr. Wiley from Megaman or just another cranky old white dude, my man fully pads up and gets it going. The best thing is, Kahn started skateboarding when he was 65, about 50+ years later then most kids start today. So next time your “not sure” if you should try a trick, or are too busy getting stoned playing Gods Of War to go out an skate, think of gramps, the dude who is 3-4 times as old as you and rollin’ on the daily. It’s better than staying home and waiting for the world to end like some other people around his age group. Do you feel like a lazy piece of shit yet?
“I’m not giving up skating, as long as I can walk. I mean maybe when I’m 95. Well.. if you fall, you’re talking about a broken bone but….. I’m gonna keep at it” – Lloyd
