well snow is softer than concrete and you don't have to deal with cars...You also go way faster and wear strange goggles, smoke on the chairlift and drink beer (that is optional).
Skateboarding is cheaper. but snowboarding you spend wayyy less on wheels. And you get to learn how to use an iron and wax..wich could be useful later in life.
Some skateboarders use two thin longboards on the snow, those are called obstacles or skiers.

I'm also 29 and I grew up skating too. I still do from time to time just to clear my headspace. I'd advise staying away from stairs and gaps with big consequences, I've found that we aren't as springy as we used to be.

This is the best advice ever. I'm 28, almost 29, and have skated for most of my life. My skating now is much more mellow than when I was a kid. Still love doing it, just have to be a little more careful on how it's done.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

haha thanks guys. i would stick to mostly ground tricks and grinds if i could ever figure anything out. i quit when i was about 11 or 12 and i never was any good then so i would pretty much have to start from scratch.

Skateboarding is not really like snowboarding. Surfing is more similar to snowboarding. Except it doesn’t hurt as much when you fall in the water.

Skateboarding is also much harder than snowboarding.

The only thing that is sort of similar is if you’re just riding flat based and straight, then you might be able to apply some balance that you have already gotten from skateboarding…like moving “sideways” while not tipping over. That’s about it. But this type of riding is usually only when you are pretty decent already, because in reality, the snow is bumpy and a small jerk can send you catching an edge if you aren’t used controlling the board.
