Got my first really skateboard at age 8 (Mark Gonzalez) in 83 and skated probably until I was 17 or 18 years old.
Got my first Snowboard at age 10 (Burton Elite)in 85. Have been snowboard ever since, but not as much as I used to. Like the above post, skiing is expensive once you have a family. Plus I'd rather spend it on gas towing people behind boat.
Bought my first boat last summer. Niether my wife or I water ski (no skis on our boat), so I got my first wakeboard last summer at the age of 32.
Also tried wakeskating once last summer, so over the winter I bought my own skate, and yes I'm still 32 (I believe).
