PICKING THE RIGHT SNOWBOARD FOR YOU
With so many different options available, picking out the right snowboard can be overwhelming. There
are multiple variables one should consider when picking out a snowboard. First, is an individual’s
snowboarding ability. Typically a beginner will select a shorter, more flexible board to learn quicker. The
next factor is one’s riding style. Riders who spend the majority of their time riding at speed on groomers
might select a stiffer, longer, “camber” shaped board for optimal edge grip, while park and glades riders
will select shorter, more flexible, rocker shaped boards for maximum maneuverability. Finally, you
should consider where you will be using the board most often. Riders who mostly go to mountains with
high snowfall totals will often select longer, wider and more rocker shaped boards for maximum
floatation, while riders who go to mountains with low snowfall totals will benefit from a smaller, camber
style board. These are just a few factors to help a rider pick out the best snowboard. It is always best to
consult your local ski shop expert to have them help you pick out the right board, or attend a demo to
try out multiple options.
