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.
In the low-level price range women only have one option in the freestyle category. Womens boards will cost you around $300 or less. Childrens boards will cost you around $200. Rossignol offers several different types of boards. They have the all terrain snowboard the all mountain snowboard the ECO snowboard the freestyle snowboard the mens freestyle snowboard the womens freestyle snowboard and the womens snowboard. Surely with the variety of categories that Rossignol has to offer you will be able to locate the perfect snowboard for you. The graphics and design of the Rossignol snowboards are laid back compared to those of other companies. You can still get some funky art and cool colors just maybe not as bright or wild as you would like.
They are good for doing tricks and are generally softer and shorter for than other boards allowing riders to turn twist and flip easily. There are also freeride boards. These boards are generally longer and sometimes are directional (meaning they are meant primarily to be ridden one direction). They are more stable at high speeds. Lastly there are powder boards which are designed for deep soft snow. They are usually wider and bigger in order to give you the correct float. Snowboard size is critical when purchasing a new board as each style requires a different size depending on your weight and ability. Most boards these days have their own chart which can help to guide you. Be sure to also ask a snowboard sizing expert at the store before making the purchase. There are also many different types of snowboard boots on the market that complement each type of riding style.
Snowboarding Apparel Just in case you forgot snow is cold and the temperatures will be low. You are going to want clothes that will you dry and warm however you need to be able to move freely so you can enjoy your time on the snow. Layers are great because you can remove them if you get too warm. Start with some long underwear or t shirt then add cotton shirt over that. Next you will add a fleece pullover then add a jacket over that to keep you warm then on top of that you will add a waterproof jacket. Also dont neglect your head; choose a beanie or helmet preventing heat loss. Used Snowboards Accessories Goggles goggles goggles!!!! This is very important to have as part of your outerwear and protection. You need goggles to protect your eyes from the glare on the snow and protection from stray branches. You also want to have socks gloves scarf ear warmers and things for safety such as knee and wrist guards.
