Surprised, read that "pleased", to see so many 40+ riders.

42. First tried in my late 20s then let it go. Started back up about three years ago. So much time wasted.

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.
My son is 13 now. Started him at 6. He is way better than me now especiall with jumps/park stuff

My oldest son and I started together when he was 8. He's already better than I am at jumps and grabs. My middle son started around age 5, though I haven't pushed him much and he's only been a few times since then (now age 6). He still can't link turns, but he's able to go straight and do j-turns to stop or slow down (mostly heelside) on gentle green trails. My youngest son tried skiing at 3, snowboarding at 4, but doesn't have the coordination to progress fast yet. He's now 5 and still working on turns.
