But if you really have to put a lot of weight into it than it is probably a little too stiff for what you want. If you are shopping at an online snowboarding store check the board review or product description. Usually they will say something about the flex of the board. Or they might have a ratings system where they rate the torsional(side to side) flex and the longitudinal(tip to tail) flex. The higher the number the more flexible it is. The bottom line is that the best beginner snowboard is one that is easier to turn. The first and most basic aspect of snowboarding is turning but for someone just starting out it can be difficult. Buy snowboards that are softer and they will make learning to turn easier. And the good thing is is that most entry level to mid-ranged priced snowboards have a softer flex so you wont have to break the bank to get a snowboard. Good Luck and Have Fun.
Rossignol snowboards are a leader in the snowboarding industry. They have developed technology that has increased the popularity of their snowboards and the sport of snowboarding. With some progressive shapes and high-end performance standards you will be seeing more from Rossignol snowboards. Right now their options are limited as they seem to be focusing on the more technical aspects of building a great snowboard rather than many different types of less quality snowboards. They do offer a mens line womens line boys line and girls line. In the mens division the boards are basically divided into three different price ranges - low end to high end.
Many snowboard manufacturers offer a mini trick snowboard. Most of the time these snowboards have been developed from the youth series that the company has to offer. The mini snowboards offer the snowboarders more maneuverability and versatility when it comes to their performance. With leading industry technology and materials the mini snowboards can stand up to their full grown counterparts; however some riders really do prefer the smaller version while at the park trying to turn those tricks. Thats right. All of your top brands offer a trick board. Companies such as Burton Rossignol and Capita offer the smaller design boards that work great for those days when you are at the park just trying to play around with all of the stunts and tricks that the elements at the park have to offer. The cost of these mini boards can be a lot less than that of their grown companions; however you can still expect to pay around $150 to a little less than $300 for the mini boards depending on the brand of course.
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.
