I recently took up snowboarding so I could board with my 10 year old Son. Previously I'd only tried it 1 day and went back to my skis. But in helping him in our first trip this year I realized it wasn't that tough to pick up. So our next trip out I rented a board and never looked back. Had some brutal falls but greatly improved over the trip. I'm hooked. Never thought I'd pick it up at 44. But with my Son improving like he did I can see us both getting boards of our own for next season.
