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.
Snowboards for beginners can cost top dollar but they dont have to. In fact they probably shouldnt. It is easy to think that the best beginner snowboard should be one of the more expensive boards. The logic behind that theory is that the more it cost the better the quality the better the quality the easier it will be to snowboard. However for snowboarding that theory doesnt work at least not for beginners snowboards. It is true that as the price of snowboards go up so does the quality of the material used in making snowboards. The quality of a snowboard though is not a big of issue for a beginner as it is for a more advanced rider. One good reason to buy the lower to mid ranged priced snowboards is that you might not like snowboarding and why invest a lot of money on a snowboard if you arent really sure that your going to be into the sport.
Once forgotten this technology is now back with the DC boards. DC boards come with a variety of different cores and finishes. Some boards incorporate the use of Kevlar strips while others offer forgiving flex capabilities that are perfect for every board rider out there today. You will be able to have a board that will last you a while and that will be fun to ride. DC offers all mountain park and other types of boards; however their emphasis seems to be leaning more towards the park aspect of snowboarding. (Hmm wonder why?) However even though they lean more towards the park rider DC snowboards are able to stand up to the terrain outside of the park as well so dont let the description fool you. A DC snowboard can be used in other snowboarding terrain and not just in the park. DCs 4400 sintered base is available in almost each and every snowboard that they manufacture. This base is fast and easy to maintain which makes the DC snowboard that much more desirable. If you are looking for that fashion statement that a snowboard can provide then DC snowboards is the way to go. They offer some really cool designs and graphics that are sure to turn heads wherever you may play. They can be somewhat laid back as an undertone but the DC logo itself can stand alone.
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.
