Screw it. Go out and have fun, push yourself as much or as little as you want.

I feel the pain on the lack of snow. We're having a lot of the same here. But don't let your age be a factor. There are lots of snowboarders in their 50's and up.

I coached 2 women in two different team sports for nearly 20 years so I hope I don't come across a chauvinistic.

For me, there's 2 factors: strength and weight. On the strength side, on a pound for pound basis, I'd say men still probably have a slight edge, but probably only slight. Just think of what those little 80lb gymnasts can do. But on a pure, brute strength basis, obviously it's men. But I don't think that really makes much of a difference unless you're using the same equipment (throwing the same weight ball, dunking on the same Bball rim, etc.)

For park tricks, it isn't a factor, you're throwing around your own body weight, but the momentum factor on the same pipe means that heavier people should be able to get bigger air. Bigger air means more time to complete tricks. I think that if women could get the air that men do, then it would be a very equal playing field. I'd love to see what some of those female vaulters could do in a pipe, that's fearless!

For me it's getting to the point I would rather watch a female comp. Seems like there is more style involved since it's not just see how many rotations you can do without falling.

where are you seeing "style" in womens comps? half the time they dont even land their tricks, and when they do about half of that is a mixture of no grabs or flat out flailing for air stability. if you want to watch style in 360s and 540s just watch a snowboard movie, where its all about the cool shots.

what do you expect out of a competition that is supposed to push the boundaries of the sport? Comps are for showing who is the best, and you get that with technical tricks that one up others, not "oh how tweaked that 360 is, must be FULLLLL of style".

Really? Why don't women play in any male professional sports? Because they flat out can not compete. It is nothing offensive, but the flat out truth. Males and females have completely different body types. If you need an example just look at male vs female body builders and you will really see the difference.

I think Tech is right. There are differences in physical capabilities between men and women just like there are physical differences in capabilities between men and horses. I don't feel bad that a horse can beat me in a foot race, why should a woman care that a man can beat a woman at things that men are better at? Kind of a self-fulfilling prophesy thing.

Prejudice/bigotry/sexism doesn't consist of recognizing differences -- it's about pre-judging someone, i.e. you're a woman so you couldn't possibly be a firefighter. If you're 5'4" and 98 lbs I'd say yeah, you can't be a firefighter whether you're male or female. But if you're Venus Williams I think you could probably carry me out of a burning building just fine.

Here's an interesting stats trick: Take 100 random men and 100 random women. Line up all the men by height, and all the women by height, and go down the two lines comparing each woman to each man. Statistically you should get at most one woman taller than one man. Now randomize the lines and do the comparison again. I can't remember the exact figure, but I think it's about 30% of women taller than their male counterpart. The point is that when you're dealing with the best of the best like Olympic athletes, the men are pretty much guaranteed to be better. When you're talking about a random sampling of people, there's a good chance that any individual woman could be faster, stronger, or a better snowboarder than any individual man.

You're right, guess that's why I don't really watch comps.
