Elan Inverse Snowboard lightest wood core snowboard in world

The European company, Elan, brags as making the Inverse the lightest wood core snowboard in the world. I bought one and it is. Because of the wood core mix, it is a better ride than the Vapor. Got it from Elan snowboards, discount elan snowboards, elan

Yeah, I really didn't need this informational post about the Elan Inverse. Pretty much everyone on this board already knew it's lighter than the Vapor. For the record Elan makes a very high quality product.

Just for the record, I dont work for elan, or any pro shop.
I am just an older guy who changed from sking to snowboarding because my teenage
son said I was too old. A great sport. Dont be afraid of change.

Many of us are in our 30's on this board. Some are in their 40's. What does age have to do with it?

I am 56 years old. Not the typical age to learn snowboarding. It was not easy to learn and not easy to keep up. He is still not impressed calls me a poser. I am determined not to go back to skis.

The only reason I ride is the same reason I did it from the beginning. For fun. 20 years later I still love it and do it for fun. My preferences have changed but I still love the sideways slide.

There is a small but strong contingent of riders in their 50's and beyond. Grays on Trays is a website started by a couple of older riders who love the sport. You might check it out. I forget if some of them hang out here from time to time too.

I'm 43 and a fairly recent convert from skiing (and I don't intend to go back). I found that not much translates from skiing to snowboarding so it's pretty much like starting over. Anyway, if your son calls you names, call him names back, "gaper" comes to mind

BTW, I have every intention of snowboarding through my 50's.

My wife is a physical therapist. She recently had a patient who had a hip replacement. She was an 86 year old woman. The first thing she asked was how soon until she would be able to ski again. The doctor told her she would probably never be able to ski again. The hip she received wasn't made for vigorous activity.

As the doctor left, she whispered to my wife, "I'm still going to ski," and smiled at her.

I hope to be like her some day.

Good info for medical issues. I was treated for cancer and the meds thinned my bones to osteoporosis levels in hips and spine. Doctor said no skiing or snowboarding because I could fall, break my spine, and die. I consulted with other doctors, and ultimately started a bone building treatment with Fosamax, high dose Vit D, diet, and exercise. I was back on the slopes in 6 months. For every problem, there is a solution. Live life it to the fullest and dont believe everything one doctor tells you.
