Welcome to the forum, lots of old dudes on this forum. Glade your Son made you see the light. Happy shredding. My kids helped turn me away from the dark side to a forever young thinking snowboarder.

Hi I'm HurtonBair. I have been doing this for far too long. My body aches permanently. Quit while you're ahead, kids.

Hi Diane, welcome to snowboarding. I'm guessing you're taking lessons in one of the snow domes? Have you got a trip to the alps planned? If so you're doing the right thing getting those first extremely frustrating few days out of the way but you just wait till you see some proper mountains. It will take your breath away.

Hello All,

Glad to see there are lots of old dudes on this forum. This really does seem to be a young person's game (unless one takes ibuprofen prophylactically). I'm 44 years-old and started snowboarding at 43. Mainly I am trying to learn because my kids ride. I tried skiing (since my husband skis) and really didn't like it. Snowboarding seems a lot more fun to me. I'm trying to keep up with my 10 and 8 year-old sons who are picking up the tricks very quickly. I would just like to be able to accompany them up the mountain and not die on the way down.

My son wants to go to snow"boarding" school. I have another thread out there about whether or not that is a good idea since we live on the east coast no where near mountains. We do live near the ocean, but not the one that is good for surfing.

Name is Tyler - I am 30 now. Been boarding for about 15 years and skiing about 10 years prior to that.

Sadly I live in AZ and snow is not right up the road, but its only a couple hours. I used to ride like crazy but had a son five years ago, havent been riding in almost that same amount of time. Got back into the saddle this season and it only took about an hour to knock off the dust.

Happy boarding, look forward to getting to know some of you guys and girls on here.

My name is Brett. I'm 33 years old, and a lifelong Utah resident. I've been snowboarding for about 8 years now. Kind of a latecomer, I know, but I still love it. Look forward to talking about riding with you folks!
