While children can start skiing from about 2-3 years old, the body movements required for snowboarding are a little more complex. That's why skiing is often the first winter boardsport offered to children who can walk and, therefore, move about on skis. Given that both feet are on the board in snowboarding, you have to know your right from your left and be able to transfer your body weight onto your heels and toes. However, children often acquire these skills when they get a little older, i.e. 4 years or more.
However, if you take lessons in a ski school, snowboarding is often offered from the age of 8 years.Having said that, future riders will learn some techniques from these ski lessons taken at an early age that will be useful in snowboarding, in any case.
Even so, some snowboarding resorts have schools special snowboarding schools that will take children for short initiation sessions (20 minutes) from the age of three years and they consider that you can start taking lessons from the age of 4-5 years. At Decathlon, the snowboarding teams have even created a course of obstacles to do in store to learn snowboarding on a dry slope from 3 to 6 years old. Everything that your youngster needs to find their winter sport!
