Snowboards can be very expensive no matter what brand you buy. Using the internet is a great way to locate and purchase used snowboards for a fraction of the original price. You can still get a great used snowboard for an even better price. Buying a used board is actually better than buying a new one if you are just starting out in the sport. There is no sense in spending the money on a new one until you know that you are going to like the sport you can do the sport and that you are going to stick with the sport. When you become better then you can purchase a new snowboard and by then you will better skilled therefore allowing you to take care of your investment better.
K2 is another brand that is popular with snowboarders. Again they offer a variety of other accessories besides just a board. The K2 snowboards are less expensive than the Burton snowboards but you can still expect to pay a couple of hundred dollars plus tax. They come with cool graphics. You can find some great deals on K2 boards but they do have some minor defects; however if they do you are definitely notified before purchase. Determining what type of snowboard will work best for you can be a little confusing if you dont ask for help. Talk to someone who knows what they are talking about and they should be able to suggest what will work best for you. Your shoe size will help to determine how wide you will want your board.
And it is always vital to a company to have great riders because the feedback they provide can help the company really take it to the next level. But the bottom line with snowboards any company or line is that it is the rider who determines whether or not the board is any good. You can make the argument that almost any snowboard company is good so long as they make boards that fit their niche. Roxys niche is the lady boarder looking for a quality board maybe one with some appealing graphics. If you like the look you have to ride one. Thats the only way you can really know if the board works for you. A Roxy snowboard is just like any other snowboard you can fall off it or you can fall in love with it. Sometimes its both.
But if you are an experienced rider it depends on your riding style that if you want to get a new board or not. If you do competitions and what not I suggest you buy a used board since you can do a lot of experimenting with it and you can have a variety of board which you can use for the competitions or when you actually go to the slopes to ride for fun. The thing about buying a used snowboard is that if you cant find one locally like the classified ads youre going to have to go online. In my earlier posts I talked about how crucial it is to know your right snowboard sizing when picking out a board and if you cant test the board youre buying its going to take a bit harder work for you. But going online to buy your used snowboard is a great idea because there are a bunch of deals out there waiting for you.
