We decided to take the good folks at Sunset Villa assisted living for a field trip to show them Onewheel for the first time. We planned on showing them the board, doing a bit of riding for them and explaining how they work. We hoped it'd be an entertaining afternoon for them. Well, we got much more than we bargained for... It was an absolutely unbelievable experience for everyone involved.
Let us start by saying this, there's something so genuine and pure about the relationship old people and young people have with new stuff. They're not jaded by all the new fancy things coming out all the time and when they see something amazing it shines through.
They got such a kick out of watching Onewheeling in action. They would break into applause throughout the demo to all of our delight. Their appreciation for something so radically new was really fun to see. They asked lots of good questions while we snacked and dropped some knowledge on us as only wise experienced folks can do.
Finally, before we went our separate ways, Ed, at age 86 decided that he just had to try to go for a ride. He hoped on and immediately took off down a big grassy hill. It was absolutely amazing. None of us could believe it. He rode for another minute or two and then dismounted the board perfectly to a host of cheers. When he got back to the group it was hugs all around. A moment that gives you the chills.
They thanked us profusely and we thanked them profusely and we all left as friends. One of the most amazing days we've had during our time making Onewheels.
A big thanks to all the folks at Sunshine Villa. You guys and gals are legends!
