I love your videos. Were the skateboarding kids surprised to see a unicycle in their park?

thanks for sharing... That's pretty amazing stuff -- but it looks like it could be painful.

Great vid. Thanks for representing the 50+ group.

Kinda reminds me of some of crazy things I used to do on my uni, but that was over 30 years ago and mostly in the dorm halls.

Yeah my first uni was a Schwinn 20" way back in '67. I learned fast but back then there was no inkling of what we have today, and after about a year I went on to other things as kids do. It wasn't until almost 40 years later, in late '05 that I started riding again at age 50. Now more than 7 years later, I love it more than ever, but I have a LOT of catching up to do...about 4 decades worth!
