Poll: What age did you start Riding?
Just started this year. I'm 17 and man do I regret not starting sooner. The only other thing that has grabbed me like this is guitar.

Started really late.

Started last year at 23 and immediately fell in love. Rented once, then bought and have quickly progressed and bought better gear. Started so late because I was a competitive swimmer and had a scholarship for it so my coach never let me near a mountain

ya this is my senior year and it's basketball season. It's killing me, I just want to be on the mountain and I'm stuck running suicides in practice. I rented once, borrowed once, and then bought. I plan on getting a season pass next year since I've decided not to play sports in college.

I'm not a big fan of team sports. I also use to be a swimmer and was great at it but my school didn't offer it so I dropped out of my club. I inline skate in the summer and was looking for something new to do just one on one competing against my friends and myself. That's why I love it so much I think.

Started last winter when I was 20. Rented for a week and then bought my gear this year before thanksgiving. Went w/ very toned down gear so I wouldn't be one of the noobs showing up w/ all this crazy looking stuff and not be capable of linking turns.

Wish I'd started earlier but such is life.

i think i started when i was about 7 but i didnt start getting serious about it until 12 or 13
i just wish i was more serious about it earlier because some of my 13 year old friends are just as good as i am and im 16
and my love for snowboarding seems to be growing exponentially every year if that even possible any more

Started at 13, christ I'm getting old that's 15 years ago. First board was a Liquid 151 that I bought with my paper route money. I gave it up from years 17-23 because of college, girls, booze, whatever you want to attribute it to.
