i snowboarded from the time i was 8 to the time i was 16 but then i felt i was a more natural skier than boarder but i totally respect snowboarding and love to carve down groomers and threw the pow but i was not as comfterble on jumps
I snowboarded from 12 until 17, then I switched to skiing, but I still occasionally board. (I'm 20 now). My first skis were twins and between playing defense in hockey and snowboarding I caught on quick.
I dont know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.
i've been a skier my whole life, but for a couple years (this is maybe when i was 15-17 yrs, and now i'm 19) i was snowboarding. right when the first twins came out, lots of my ski team buddies switched over and for some reason, i did not. i jumped ship and joined the dark side, along with my school friends. then i moved to ottawa, and got into freeskiing and i'm fuckin loving it. i'm a pretty decent snowboarder too though..
I skied until I got bored with straight skis, then at heavenly I learned to ride and did so for 6 years. Then came kids, at which point I spent the next 2 years skiing switch on shaped skis trying to intercept runaway 2 & 3 yr olds. My boys have boards that have never been ridden on, we tend to think that riding is mostly for people who don't know how to ski or are too lazy to learn.
I've skied for 13 years, and twin tipped for past 3. This past winter bought a cheap board and had a blast doing both, I caught on quite quick and got better than alot of my boarder friends which was sweet.
i snowboarded for 2 years and its really easy to do park stuff on a snowboard. i landed a 360 on one at a sledding hill my first try and it was the first time i was ever on a snowboard. but i think snowboards are a little harder to go fast down groomers and stuff on just cause you always have to be on your edges.
