Well, I'm in my 40s, so, yes, you can still learn slalom.

Freestyle slalom is all about learning the proper techniques and foundation moves. Watching videos are great, though taking a class might accelerate your learning curve and help style-up your skating. If you don't know any freestyle instructors in your area, you could see if Naomi Grigg has a workshop near where you live (www.skatefreestyle.com).

Also, there are lots of tips, videos, and discusions on the great US Freestyle Skating Association (USFSA) Forum:

(click on Forum link at upper right corner of page).

Good luck with it, old man.
