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.
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.
This is a great way to be able to get that "cool" one that you want that you can show off and brag about as well. You can act like youre a pro because you have the same boards that the pros use. Isnt that cool? Snowboarding is an extreme sport and having a variety of different styles available for use is also a good idea. You could have your practice boards and then you could have the boards that you only use for competitions. By purchasing used snowboards it will allow you to afford to have a variety to choose from and to use to help you get that edge that you want over your competition. Dont forget about the possibility of causing damage to your board.
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.
