It depends on your activity level and balance sport history. if your strait off the couch than expect it to hurt! And it depends on what level of Snowboarding you plan to do. If you just want to carve down the hills, snowboarding is pretty easy, the hardest parts are getting used to the balance and stopping, and you can figure those out within a couple of hours.

If you plan on doing tricks, then yes, snowboarding can be quite difficult.


I guess so. But with perseverance to learn and consistency of practice, there is no hard in snowboarding.

Snowboarding is much tougher than skiing. Although, between the two, snowboarding is considered more fun. Although a snowboard does not offer as much speed, it offers more maneuverability. Long skis are the equivalent of the Blackbird; all speed, with no maneuverability. If you are really into speed however, using long skis are the way to go. There are three standard size ranges: short, medium, and long, and they are determined by height. In the simpler terms, the long skis are taller than you, those are the ones you use for speed, and the ones the pros use to set speed records.
