Choosing the Right Snowboard for Your Skills
Easy Ride Boards – Snowboards for beginners that make getting off the lift and building comfort on your toe-edge and heel-edge easier. A variety of brands make snowboard features great for beginners such as:
• A twin shape that make transitioning your ride from one direction to the other easy
• Flat and reverse camber designs to help not catch an edge
Performance Boards – Snowboard for Intermediate boarders that still could benefit from features like the twin shape, but are ready to step it up with a directional board.
Features that performance boards tend to have:
• Directional shape – you know if you ride “goofy” or “regular” by now, you’re ready to ride a board that conforms to your unique riding style
• Reverse camber still allowing for stability but adding versatility to your ride
High Performance Boards – Snowboards for the Advanced rider.
Features that riders can expect in a more advance level snowboard:
• Mixed and reverse camber design to conform to the jumps, curves and backside riding you take your board on
