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.
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.
K2 is another brand that is popular with snowboarders. Again they offer a variety of other accessories besides just a board. The K2 snowboards are less expensive than the Burton snowboards but you can still expect to pay a couple of hundred dollars plus tax. They come with cool graphics. You can find some great deals on K2 boards but they do have some minor defects; however if they do you are definitely notified before purchase. Determining what type of snowboard will work best for you can be a little confusing if you dont ask for help. Talk to someone who knows what they are talking about and they should be able to suggest what will work best for you. Your shoe size will help to determine how wide you will want your board.
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.
