old guy picking up a new sport
Looking for some answers to some basic questions. Did some searching on here already, any other links or sites to get some basic snowboarding equipment answers? I have a nine year old that is learning to snowboard. He was set up by our local shop here with some beginner equipment. I'm 34. Never snowboarded. My boarding experience is limited to wakeboarding. Have only done a little skiing. Looking to spend some time on the hill with my kid though. Is this something I'm can pick up without too much trouble? Just looking for some easy riding on the hill. Not going for the parks, jumps, or back country tree dodging. I'm 6'5 225lbs size 12 boot and in good shape, other than one knee that is a little sore. Only bothers me after some hard landings wakboarding. Any boards bindings you can suggest? Any boards or bindings to avoid? Thanks in advance.
