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.
Having a directional form means that tips of boards are not similar from its end. In free rides the end is normally more slim shorter and flat compared to the tilt of the snowboard. Because of this the stand on free ride snowboard is generally balances headed for the back of the snowboard. Nevertheless free ride snowboards may be ridden in spite of their directional forms. These snowboards are generally fairly flexible and can be maneuvered easily by beginners however hard enough to make a fast twirl in firm snow. These types of boards bridge the space between Alpine and Freestyle but it is not steady as carving board and it is also not alert like freestyle snowboard.
And the Roxy snowboard is getting the full treatment with all the Magne Traction technology that other boards produced by Mervin are getting. Of course Mervin Manufacturing is doing this because they are owned by Quiksilver a deal made back in the 90s. It doesnt hurt Roxy that their pro riders arent too shabby either. Torah Bright is the premier name you might recognize. Her new Bright Series is just one of the lines that Roxy is expanding into. Alongside Torah are riders Sarah Burke a two times X-Games Gold Medalist and Kjersti Buaas an Olympic snowboarder. These girls have shredded parks and pipes that would have most guys shaking in their snowboarding boots. Whether or not you still doubt if Roxy is legit you cant argue that the girls who ride them certainly are.
Two years after its launch Roxy started making gear for snow sports. In 2003 they started putting out snowboards all very similarly styled to their clothing line. It was a surprise for many people in the industry to see a company devote itself entirely to one gender but their style and manufacturing credits more on that in a bit earned them enough buyers to keep going. Now they have become entrenched in the marketplace and offer a full line from entry boards to boards pros would shred on. But first back to that manufacturing thing. Roxy isnt a cheap brand churned out by the warehouse-load. They are made by Mervin Manufacturing the same guys who give us some of the incredible technology behind hyper-popular boards like the Lib Tech Banana and top-end GNU boards.
