Any skateboard people here?

I used to have a skateboard when I was 9-10... That was more than 20 years ago but now I'm itching to get a new board and re-learn the craft.
My wife's saying that I'm too old to be seen with a skateboard.
If I buy some $30 board will it break on the first ollie? Am I too old for this?

Damn, to be a kid again...
