    Posted: Apr/19/2010 at 4:19am
For everyone who keeps asking ''how young can my kid start riding a snowboard'', I think the final answer is 3. Today I saw on MSN.com a video of a 3 year old totally ripping it up on his 90 cm board, even hitting small jumps with a little air and getting up onto some rails, but not doing so well with those yet. So it appears that any kid who is old enough to stand up is old enough to try. This kid must have started before 3 to be able to ride so well by now.

Wow, pretty impressive. I guess when you start young, things come much easier?

Depending on their physical development, I think around 6 would be the best age to start.
