I wonder how big the jumps will become when she's a teenager. Oh sure, it's terrifying now...

snoway Just wanted to say hi, I'm new to the forum. I found it thanks to the amazing advice offered on boot fitting.

A bit about me. I grew up surfing in South Africa and only saw snow for the first time when I was 22. Now I live in the south of France and have the southern alps 2 and a half hours away.

I tried snowboarding for the first time in 2008 and rode for 4 days in 09/10. I had to take a bit of a hiatus while being pregnant or having tiny babies during the season and badly torn stomach muscles. This winter I was able to ride for a total of 6 days and with a couple of lessons progressed nicely and looking forward to next winter to be able to progress even more and ride as many days as possible.

Now that the youngest is old enough to go to ski school we are going to get season tickets for our closest smallish resort and try to head up every weekend.

I'm really looking forward to the eldest being able to start riding as she is super keen to ride with mom.

I grew up skiing with my Dad, loved it! Now I'm living in snowboarding mecca, got my then girlfriend into snowboarding (now wife), volunteer snowboard patrol, and when we have kids we'd love to get them into the sport. Hopefully they choose to continue with it, and carry on the tradition!

Anyways, welcome to the forum!

but still able to ride with my daughter...we started together like 15 yrs ago (7 and 44 yrs) and last Sat my son, daughter and I rode together which we hadn't done in like 6-7 years...it was damm fun
Oh no, its fine. She pushes me to learn new things (I had never done woods before this season.. loving them now.), have fun and just enjoy the mountain. They have no fear at that age, and I will never hold her back from trying something.
She broke her elbow last season and as soon as she got her hard cast.. she was back on the board.
