I didn't start riding the bike park till my mid 30's, and didn't hit crabs until two years ago. If you love it, and if you take it slow and keep an honest appraisal of your abilities you can ride the bike park every day for four years and come out with five to ten days of scrapes like I have.
The biggest problem is that people try to push it too quickly. Just learn how to say, "Nah, not today."
Did you hit your crabs at Buffalo Bills in Whistler?
This guy that created fluidride bike school has really easy to understand approaches to bike skills. His vid on jumps below.
