YOLO as they say - have no regrets!Pipes3395 wrote:Cheers from Chicago,,, Any old new guys in the forum ? I'm 49 yrs old . Active my whole life but riddled with sports and racing injuries . 4 shoulder ops, broken ribs, broken fingers , had left foot partially amputated and reattached , other various injuries. Overall i can go pretty good . However my question is more with edge control when turning , Im a regular stance and my left ankle is in a locked position . I have snowboard and skateboard experience ( but not since my racing accident). What problems do you anticipate me having before i jump into this amazing sport ?? Am i too old for this ?

Learning in the winter on a snowboard will make learning on the water a lot easier. On snow/frozen lakes around here you can walk out and easily get away from shore which makes it safer than on the water, to an extent. Assuming you can hold an edge well, riding with a kite will really help you learn basic kite skills and how to properly stay upwind, etc.
What usually takes 5 -7+ hours on water to just get the basics down, will take maybe 2-3 hours on snow to get you riding comfortably.
We have a great crew over here and the most experienced trainers/instructors/coaches in the region.
Looking forward to meeting you.
