If you know ALM Photo's Allan Mueller, you know he is definitely still a kid at heart and loves to take part in any extreme sport you suggest, so it was no surprise to find him at the brand-new Knoxville Skatepark on a chilly overcast Sunday morning. Lugging his gear (including the mandatory helmet) in his old green bag and carrying his Sector 9 skateboard under his arm, he could have been any other kid excited to meet his friends for a morning of vigorous bowl riding. But Allan isn't any other kid. He's 44 years old and was joined by at least a half dozen other skateboarders over the age of 35 who were as stoked as a bunch of teenagers about the fantastic features of the park, just with a little less flexibility but no less determination. Several of the older skateboarders in attendance took a couple of nasty spills and some of them looked more than a little sketchy as they hopped on their boards. A couple of the riders hadn't been on their board for several of years, but they all had a great time and vowed to make the Sunday morning ride a ritual. I won't be surprised to see some new boards in the skatepark next week. Here are a couple of shots of Allan kicking it old school.
