Cool story bro! (: I'm not 50, but I did start two years ago when I was 30- and I totally feel like I missed my prime opportunity

You didn't miss shit, you've got the best of both worlds in front of you now, a body that still functions well and a brain thats beginning to function.

I say that because in ones teens or twenties its not the brain, but the testicles that do the thinking. In ones thirties its at least a mixture of both.

I started boarding at 31 now 5 years on and absolutely loving it. I taught several friends how to board, two are over 50 and one is now an addict and a very solid boarder. His lady friend learned at 61. She just links turns but hopefully this year she will take it up a level.

I am blessed to live near some of the best powder available anywhere and if this year is a normal year I should be in the white room for many many days.

Yeah thats me in there.
