My daughter started on a board at age 10. It was what her friends were doing and it had a coolness factor that skiing didn't have (probably because it was what mom did). After 8 years, on our last trip she announced she wanted to try skiing. She loved it and said she felt much more in control than on a board. We'll be back to PC in a week and she plans on skiing again!
