So if truly believe mountainboarding is a young mans sport, Master Startin, At what age are you going to hang up your board and quit because you have become to old?

Well, it depends on how you look at the question... Either, is it not for old people... OR, can young men do well in it...

guess it depends on what your take on OLD is.. at what point ar you "OLD"
and with that at what point are you no longer "YOUNG"

im 35 and still feel like im 20... ill be doing it for many more years and plan to stay on top of the pile

i taught a 72 year old man to ride
i taught a 3 year old kid to ride

i mean you see these excersise vidoes commercials and the guy is like im 54 and i feel better than when i was 18 (is he young?)
then i see this baby using an ipad to do some stock trading on etrade hes a little pissed at mom for putting him in his crib... (is he too old?)

Doesn't matter what age, im 16 and my dads getting 48 in 9 days, i wouldn't think it would be wierd if he would be mountainboarding, just awsome ^^
It's sad that most people just try those casual sports like tennis football etc, cooler trying something new out.
Mountainboarding doesn't exist at all here in southern sweden, it's very sad :(

Its nice bumping an old thread ^^

Dinosaurs are from the future, they built a time machine and travelled back in time, unfortunately they miss judged the coordinates and got stuck underground.

When your first learning to snowboard you fall on your but a lot which I think turns a lot of older people away from it, but mountainboarding as a much faster learning curve and you really don't have to fall that much, especially with a break.

No way is this a young persons game. That's table tennis you are thinking of. I come from a kite landboarding background.. and most of the people I meet doing that are in their 40s. Next step for me is taking the board our without the kite. :D

Thank you for posting this question, & thank you for all the possitive replies, it's very encouraging to a no-longer-a-spring-chicken-but-still-a-fun-lovin'-chick who hatched in 1966. My personal view is life's too short, I've got to live it cuz on my death bed, it won't be the things that I did that I'll regret - it's the things I didn't.

Yeah, I'm not as fast or as strong like I was in my 20's; & I'm a lot more cautious now, I don't have the balls like you guys :) But I'm still driven by the lust for fun.

I'm just stoked to see people out there enjoying life regardless of their age or ability!

Pads and a helmet are always a good idea. ;)

Age is an excuse to either not try or not take responsibility. A persons patience, commitment and ambition are true indicators of whether an interest is suitable.
