My little snowboarders!

Here are my twin boys (12 years) with their new boards. Forum Destroyer Double Dog (148) on the left and GNU Park Pickle (150) on the right. I was shocked at how well they rode them considering they were coming off of entry level 138 sized boards.

The little dude in the monkey hat even hit a medium sized jump much to mom's displeasure

I have identical twin boys who just turned 4. If your used boards were smaller I'd grab them, but they're still a ways from using 138s.

Sucks having to buy two of everything right? lol

Did you go from a CRF230f to a big KTM? Ugg...that would be a steep and painful learning curve!

Ha ha...yeah it sure does! But twin boys are awesome because they are best friends that enjoy hanging out with each other.

Identical...nice. Can you tell them apart?

FWIW - my boys were skiers until they turned 9. We started them at 4 years...they were pretty cute buzzing around on tiny skis.

Yea we had them on skis this year, but they're begging to snowboard. I can tell them apart but most people can't.
