Nah don't worry about it. I started snowboarding at 35+ and have long ways to go, but i've been having a blast since day 1 so

Just take it easy, ride and have fun, you get better without even noticing it.

Who cares if it takes 2, 3 yrs or whatever; or if the young kids are better... let them be good. You'll have fun anyways.......

chomps1211 Not a bad little edit. I'm hoping I will get the sliding thing figured out this summer. If I do, the wait for snow might not be so agonizing.

...then again, I'd also like to get $3500 and get me onea them thar Baja Boards! Those rides look sweet as shit!

F1EA I'm ussually the oldest when longboarding... but snowboarding i'm apparently at average age... not bad

I don't care though. I have equal fun doing both/either, and have never cared about seeming "too old" for anything. I'd rather be too old to be boarding than too young for diabetes or a heart attack.

Gym = boring. I'd much rather play around on a skateboard, snowboard etc than go to an enclosed building and lift heavy stuff. Yoga is lame, if it wasnt for yoga pants it would be pointless. When i want to relax, i sleep.

Here, a simple edit i made longboarding a yr or two ago:


Longboarding is fun.... compared to snowboarding, it is: cheaper, grippy and dirtier... oh and there's also cars and road rash (both suck). So i think i prefer snowboarding.

Manicmouse I just want to be able to keep riding while my kids are growing up. Going to put my eldest (2yo) on a snowboard this winter ^^

I'm in my 30s, I definitely feel like I've lost some hops and it seems like it takes longer for things to heal. At the same time I religiously go to the gym now and feel better now than I ever have.

Not sure if it's getting older, or if I'm just not as dumb anymore. I never used to even think about potentially hurting myself when I was lining up for a huge jump or sketchy line when I was younger.

Kinda strange.
