Thumbs up Greetings, 35 year old coming from skiing.

Hi all, I am 35 and recently decided to take the plunge and move to snowboarding from skiing. My 8 year old son has taken a interest and I thought it would be prudent to do the same so we can enjoy the sport together.

I picked up a 162cm Head Fusion Rocka with Flow Flite 1 bindings and House boots for $365 new. I am 6'0", 205 lbs. Will be boarding in the midwest hills;-)

Looking forward to learning what I can from this forum.

Welcome! I just joined too. I started riding when I was 35. Now at 40, I only wish I had started earlier. I'll never go back to being a gapper... In fact, my wife and I fight over our daughter, and whether or not she will be a rider or skier. I think I am winning, pulling the "Daddy's little girl" card...

welcome, you are not too late. I didn't start til 44. It really doesn't matter if the kids ski or board. My 3 all board and the youngest, switched to skiing 3 years ago after riding for 7 years....cause she could go faster.

Thanks everyone for the replies. I got my gear the other day and setup my bindings......I think. Now just need to get to the slopes and test it out.
