The mental health and skateboarding
See the original post in the Facebook group "Distance Skateboarding Taiwan - LDP"
"I have been asked frequently why I looked a 50 while I`m actually over 70 yo.
If there is any secret I will say it's mental health.
As a human being we all live in an environment that is very complicated, everyone must face all kind of problems no matter you are adults or youngster , rich or poor.
The fact is you can't really relax your mind in life, even if you have money and time to take a vacation.
I was an aggressive athlete for most of my life, when I was young I went outdoors every weekend, I carried diving equipment in the van, towed a stand style Kawasaki 450 jet ski in the back and put windsurfing equipment on roof of the van.
I drove to the seashore doing day exercise and diving at night, I slept in the van when I got tired.
I never think about anything, about the problems of anything in all the weekend.
Now I'm old and not able to do the things I did until I started to skate a year ago, when I can pump the surfskateboard with a big swing I felt the pleasure of windsurfing back again. I go skating everyday and only think about how to improve my skill.
Cleaning my mind brings me the total relaxation, that`s maybe the reason why I stayed young over time."
