Perhaps that brave heart MJ Burchett hadnt a clue when he put his life into risk and invented what is now known and celebrated as x-treme games. Way back in 1929 strapped a simple wooden plank to his feet and lurched forward to slide down snow clad hill. He probably couldnt help kick starting a new business in the snowboards arena. Snowboarding gears and equipments are not hard to choose from if you are a pro. For the new comers it would not be an easy choice with so much to choose from. Of course like all sincere beginners they would have read so much about how and what to buy and a few will also get their seniors/coaches to accompany them to the stores.
Snowboarding is a fun sport but it is also an expensive one. Some people become interested in the sport and really want to try it out but are amazed by how much a new snowboard costs and all the gear that you need to prepare for it. Its a big investment and if youre a person starting out it may be the better option if you buy a used snowboard to get a feel of what kind of board you want before investing in your perfect snowboard. If you are a beginner its a great idea to buy a used snowboard instead of a new one if youre coming off new to this sport. Plus we all know how expensive buying a new snowboard can be. Hundreds of dollars spent for a new one is a big and risky investment and if youre new buying a used snowboard may be the better option. Buying a used snowboard will save you tons of money and may even get you familiarized with the sport itself first.
Boots and Bindings for your Snowboards You are going to be looking for boots that fit your feet as close as possible not too loose. If your boots are loose you will not have the needed control and if they are too tight you will be in misery. This is really important...size!!!! They also need to be able to keep your feet warm so when looking at boots dont always rely on the cheaper price tag as they may not be warm enough. Look for a good lining in your boot as well as some good cushion. The boots need to be flexible and allow you good control for speed and direction of your board. When the boots are too stiff you will have a greater risk of falling. Your binding will be determined by the boot you choose. Try on all your options in the store before taking them out on the snow. Also make sure the store offers a good return policy before you purchase. If your boots dont work then you wont be out the money. Again for a beginner check out the used snowboard boots and bindings.
When I first started snowboarding back in 1992 I was about the only person on the Mountain give or take a few people. Since then snowboarding has progressed so much that there are often as many (if not more) snowboarders on the mountain than skiiers. Today they make many different types of snowboards for each style of snowboarding and it is important to pay attention to this when you are buying a snowboard. All mountain snowboards are designed to work anywhere on the slopes. This is the type of snowboard I would recommend starting with as a beginner or if you are someone that wants one board that can do everything. Freestyle snowboards are boards that are designed to work in terrain parks and in half pipes.
