  • How young to start skiboarding?

    Hello Friends.

    My daughter just turned 1! and for those who have kids, I’m curious what age you got them on the slopes or on a hill in the backyard? Did you ever try any infant skis? Is there an infant line of rvl8s in the works? Maybe 30cm! I see some Bantam’s in her future.

    Congratulations Joey! I started my first son at 3 and second at 2.5yrs. Both on just regular rental children's skis, around 80cm I think. Then after they got a little better I installed Tyrolia jr. bindings on Spruce risers and had them on Bantams. Fun times!

      My son will be 6-7 months when winter hits here on the East Coast... I was going to tuck him in a boot on a DLP and see if he stays up...lol Just kidding.

        Hey Joey,

        All of my kids started around the age of 6 or 7. Didn't plan it that way, it's just how it happened. My kids all caught on pretty quickly. They all started on regular jr. skis, not skiboards.

        HTH,
        Chad

          That sounds about right.

          And I guess I have some time, if I wait another year or 2. But this year went by so fast that I wanted to start thinking about it. Even 6 or 7 would be fine. Thanks
