The smaller size of the mini boards allows the rider to perform tricks better. The boards are a lighter weight board than the full size boards. The mini boards are highly flexible and allow the rider to have versatility and more maneuverability in those tight spaces and turns. The mini boards offer the centered stance position which allows the boarder to maintain balance better to apply more pressure in the center of the board while on the rails and boxes and just overall gives the rider more control in the park setting. The mini boards are usually a combination board that is designed for freestyle and freeride; however you can still find the ones that offer the option of all mountains as well. You dont have to just keep these little boards in the park; they can handle the powder as well. You have to remember that the mini boards are usually the youth version and kids too like the mountain.
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.
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.
