The smaller size of the mini boards allows the rider to perform tricks better. The boards are a lighter weight board than the full size boards. The mini boards are highly flexible and allow the rider to have versatility and more maneuverability in those tight spaces and turns. The mini boards offer the centered stance position which allows the boarder to maintain balance better to apply more pressure in the center of the board while on the rails and boxes and just overall gives the rider more control in the park setting. The mini boards are usually a combination board that is designed for freestyle and freeride; however you can still find the ones that offer the option of all mountains as well. You dont have to just keep these little boards in the park; they can handle the powder as well. You have to remember that the mini boards are usually the youth version and kids too like the mountain.
Any snowboarder knows how important good snowboards are for being able to do what he or she wants while on the slopes or while on a half pipe. Even though there are many different kinds of boards from which people can choose the fact is that not everybody is satisfied by the choices that are available. Because of this some people decide to create their own boards instead. A person who is able to create a snowboard is able to customize it the exact way he or she wants. Although customizable boards are available they are also typically very expensive. A person can save money by creating his or her own board. Although having some previous woodworking skills is beneficial when making a snowboard previous experience is not absolutely necessary. However someone with no previous experience should be very careful to meticulously follow the design or else he or she may make a mistake that renders the creation useless.
A second and even better reason why to buy the lower to mid ranged snowboards is that they are usually softer. By softer they are more flexible. A common theme among all snowboards for beginners is that they are flexible because it is easier to learn how to turn on a softer more flexible board. Entry level snowboards cost from $150-$250 and mid-ranged snowboards cost from $250-$450. If you are shopping at a local snowboard store ask the shop crew to show you the more flexible or softer snowboards. You can test how flexible they are by setting the tail on the ground and grabbing the tip and push it down. If the board starts to flex without putting too much muscle into it than it is considered a soft board.
And the Roxy snowboard is getting the full treatment with all the Magne Traction technology that other boards produced by Mervin are getting. Of course Mervin Manufacturing is doing this because they are owned by Quiksilver a deal made back in the 90s. It doesnt hurt Roxy that their pro riders arent too shabby either. Torah Bright is the premier name you might recognize. Her new Bright Series is just one of the lines that Roxy is expanding into. Alongside Torah are riders Sarah Burke a two times X-Games Gold Medalist and Kjersti Buaas an Olympic snowboarder. These girls have shredded parks and pipes that would have most guys shaking in their snowboarding boots. Whether or not you still doubt if Roxy is legit you cant argue that the girls who ride them certainly are.
