Skateboarding keeps 76-year-old rider on his toes


Lloyd Kahn doesn't go anywhere without two or three skateboards and a variety of helmets and pads in the back of his truck. Kahn, 76, is the owner of Shelter Publications in Bolinas, where he lives.How you found it: When I was 65, I tried out the skateboard of my son's friend, and I was hooked.
Greatest benefit: First and foremost, it's fun. I ride downhill. I don't ride in skate parks or get air. I think it's good for the brain to be learning a new skill at my age. Good also for balance and coordination. There's also the element of danger or pain if I screw up, so it makes me pay attention.
Where you do it: Anywhere that the slope is right, pavement smooth, and there aren't too many cars. Favorite spots are the parking lot by the Officers' Club in the Presidio, and the hill by Murphy Windmill in Golden Gate Park.
Most annoying thing people assume about your obsession: Being my age, it attracts a lot of attention, and I'd just as soon skate when no one is around. However, the kids really like seeing me skate and give me the thumbs up.
Any advice: Safety gear, safety gear, safety gear. I have a helmet, knee pads, elbow guards and gloves with hockey pucks attached to the palms by Velcro. There are a lot of people who skated when younger and gave it up. I encourage them to get back into it, because the equipment is so good nowadays.

Crazy Eyes

I've been looking at this painting on my walks for 10 years now, and I still love it. It also resides in one of the only storefronts that hasn't been "beautified" by the neighborhood police.
