First boarded at 17 but didn't go again until I was 24. I've taken up the sport for real now tho so for the sake of this poll, I started at 24.

Started at 12, I am 30 now. Been riding for 18 years. I think I have missed a year or two because of financial obligations (having kids, buying houses, etc)

I tried it when I was 19, found out drinking and actually learning to snowboard do not mix. I finally got on a board again this year, um, I am way older, 32. It is fun though. I wish the first time I went out and took lessons, I took it more serious. We are teaching our kids, they are 5, 6 and 9. The 6 and 9 year old girls rock, the 5 year old boy, not so much.

This is just my first season, so I started at 27 (now 28). I skied a few times when I was younger and actually bought skis with the intention of learning this winter. After about five ski trips to the mountain, I ended up switching to snowboarding and haven't looked back since.

I started just over a year ago, I'll be 45 in a few weeks. I'm having a blast riding with my 10 year old daughter.
