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.
Perhaps that brave heart MJ Burchett hadnt a clue when he put his life into risk and invented what is now known and celebrated as x-treme games. Way back in 1929 strapped a simple wooden plank to his feet and lurched forward to slide down snow clad hill. He probably couldnt help kick starting a new business in the snowboards arena. Snowboarding gears and equipments are not hard to choose from if you are a pro. For the new comers it would not be an easy choice with so much to choose from. Of course like all sincere beginners they would have read so much about how and what to buy and a few will also get their seniors/coaches to accompany them to the stores.
But if you are an experienced rider it depends on your riding style that if you want to get a new board or not. If you do competitions and what not I suggest you buy a used board since you can do a lot of experimenting with it and you can have a variety of board which you can use for the competitions or when you actually go to the slopes to ride for fun. The thing about buying a used snowboard is that if you cant find one locally like the classified ads youre going to have to go online. In my earlier posts I talked about how crucial it is to know your right snowboard sizing when picking out a board and if you cant test the board youre buying its going to take a bit harder work for you. But going online to buy your used snowboard is a great idea because there are a bunch of deals out there waiting for you.
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.
