A 70-year-old grandfather nicknamed 'Barry the Fish' isn't going to take his retirement lying down. 

After receiving a longboard for his 70th birthday, he has picked up some pretty sick skater skills in just the first month.  Check out this video titled 'Barry on Board' from YouTube user J Moran.  Forget the walker. This is the way to get around.

Longboards are larger and wider than skateboards and are better suited to cruising around urban areas, offering more stability than their smaller counterparts.
