It is things like this that normal people would not consider that you will need the help for. Dont be afraid to ask. Purchasing a board is a big investment so you will not want to make a mistake. You will want to make sure that you purchase one that is right for you since they do cost several hundred dollars or more. The type of board that you will want also depends upon what type of snowboarding you are planning on doing. Are you just basically going to free ride? Free riding snowboards are different than free style boards. Free ride snowboards are longer in length and semi directional. They are perfect for different types of snow conditions and long fast turns. Free style snowboards are usually shorter in length and semi directions with a twin tip shape. They come in different types of flex and are better for short tight turns. They are great for use in the pipes and for tricks and stunts. Then there is the all mountain board which is in between the free style and the free ride snowboards. They are generally good for all types of terrain. Deciding on the right board for you will more than likely require the help of a professional who sells them; at least for the purchase of your first board. After that you should know more about what will work best for you and you can do it on your own.
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.
A con about buying used snowboards is that you wont get to pick your own design. Of course used ones are the ones the previous owner having the board with their design but if youre starting off that wont matter much since youre just experimenting and testing to see what kind of board is right for you when you start off with this sport. As time goes on you have more experience and a good feel of what is good and bad for you in a board and then you can invest in a new snowboard for you since snowboards are not cheap when they are brand new. But remember like I said there are always discounts lurking around. You just have to find them. For beginners like I said in the earlier articles you want a short board just like freestylers since it will be easy for you to maneuver. Also boot size is also important when picking out a used snowboard since not all boards are the same sizes. You dont want your toes and heels to be grinding against the snow when you ride. Itll be a pain in the ass.
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.
