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.
Most of the options are available in the mid-range level. Rossignol offers three different types of mens boards: freestyle freeride and all mountain. In the high-end range you will only find options for freeride and freestyle boards. In the mid-level range boards are available in all three different types and in the low-level price range; boards are only available in all mountain and freestyle. Mens boards will cost you around $500 or less. Not bad compared to the other companies out there. In the womens division options are even more limited. There are no options in the high-level price range. Only two options are available in the mid-level price range one each in freestyle and all mountain.
A con about buying used snowboards is that you wont get to pick your own design. Of course used ones are the ones the previous owner having the board with their design but if youre starting off that wont matter much since youre just experimenting and testing to see what kind of board is right for you when you start off with this sport. As time goes on you have more experience and a good feel of what is good and bad for you in a board and then you can invest in a new snowboard for you since snowboards are not cheap when they are brand new. But remember like I said there are always discounts lurking around. You just have to find them. For beginners like I said in the earlier articles you want a short board just like freestylers since it will be easy for you to maneuver. Also boot size is also important when picking out a used snowboard since not all boards are the same sizes. You dont want your toes and heels to be grinding against the snow when you ride. Itll be a pain in the ass.
