In brief: Risky

As a snowboarder, i can share with you that there is significant stress placed on knees, regardless of whether you snowboard "regular foot" or "goofy foot.
" the weighing and unweighing of the knees that occurs with snowboarding, with the twisting motion involved with snowboarding will be very risky for someone who has a torn meniscus.

In brief: Torn meniscus

If you have a torn meniscus, it is best to get this treated at your age.
I would not delay on this, see an orthopedic surgeon.
