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.
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.
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.
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.
