40. Boarded from 25-29 and then picked it up again last year. What a waste!

Good luck!

30 started at about 22 or 23. I tore my LCL at about 25 and it took me a couple of years to get it fixed. I couldn't snowboard during that time .

Those of you with kids, when do you start them?

Also, when doing a search for "old snowboarder" I came across this video of a 59 year old doing butters and 180s.

45, started skiing at 39, switched to snowboarding at 41.

Older kid started skiing at 7, switched to snowboarding at 10 (still does both)

Lil bro started skiing at 4, I made him switch to snowboarding at 10 (long story for another day)

Starting 'em early!

Thanks!


We're starting our 7 year old daughter and 5 year old son this Friday. We signed them up for a full day (7.5 hr) snowboarding school/camp thing.
