ah well, better late than never.
ohh pulllleeeeze nothing at all stopping you from doing park, now you probably have the money to buy some protective gear if you're that worried.
Man I have smashed and been smashed all over and still going strong! The only thing I change is I am smarter now and wear a helmet :P

If anyone out there thinks they are too old, fat or out of shape to do what you dream of, let me say I came from being a flabby lazy POS drunk back to doing all the sports I wanted to and 100x better then when I was a kid! If you want it bad enough you can do it!

Ok enough pep talk...sorry bout the rant anyways...

I started skiing at around 9, then ditched it for snowboarding I THINK around 14.. had to learn myself as noone I knew snowboarded.

Never took a lesson till I was in my 20's lol.. the first lesson I took was when I did the L 1 instructors course for fun, never taught though I dont really have the drive and people loving skills to teach well.

Anyways I too took the route of ditching boarding for booze and partying, I can say now going back to boarding has been one of the things making me enjoy life to the fullest again and I dont need liquid courage this time

Started with Toys-R-Us snowboards in the backyard when i was like 10 or so, didn't touch a real board until 15 maybe, gone once or twice a year since then. This is my first real season with my own gear and going often, wish I had started earlier though, it kinda sucks being 20 and having 10 year olds show you up terribly

I started when I was 18, I'm 20 now. My dad had promised to take us since I was like 10, never happened. Then I got lessons and a pass for Christmas when I was a sophomore in HS, but had to return it cuz I had hip surgery. So finally some friends took me up when I had some money, and I've been addicted ever since.

Started in my 20's. I was born in Indy, so it wasn't a readily available past-time. I intend to take my kid(s) to see if they like it at least once.
