They are good for doing tricks and are generally softer and shorter for than other boards allowing riders to turn twist and flip easily. There are also freeride boards. These boards are generally longer and sometimes are directional (meaning they are meant primarily to be ridden one direction). They are more stable at high speeds. Lastly there are powder boards which are designed for deep soft snow. They are usually wider and bigger in order to give you the correct float. Snowboard size is critical when purchasing a new board as each style requires a different size depending on your weight and ability. Most boards these days have their own chart which can help to guide you. Be sure to also ask a snowboard sizing expert at the store before making the purchase. There are also many different types of snowboard boots on the market that complement each type of riding style.
Boots and Bindings for your Snowboards You are going to be looking for boots that fit your feet as close as possible not too loose. If your boots are loose you will not have the needed control and if they are too tight you will be in misery. This is really important...size!!!! They also need to be able to keep your feet warm so when looking at boots dont always rely on the cheaper price tag as they may not be warm enough. Look for a good lining in your boot as well as some good cushion. The boots need to be flexible and allow you good control for speed and direction of your board. When the boots are too stiff you will have a greater risk of falling. Your binding will be determined by the boot you choose. Try on all your options in the store before taking them out on the snow. Also make sure the store offers a good return policy before you purchase. If your boots dont work then you wont be out the money. Again for a beginner check out the used snowboard boots and bindings.
You can go on eBay which not only shows pictures and useful information on the product that youre buying but there are a variety of used snowboard and other snowboarding accessories. Another one is Craigslist if you live in the states. Craigslist you can even meet with the person youre buying from and see for yourself what the board will even look like and test it out. The important thing to check for when buying a used snowboard is of course if there is any damage on the board. Make sure when checking around the board remove the bindings to see if there dents or cracks on the bindings removes any stickers to see if there are any damage on the board. If you get lucky you might find a perfect board for you and itll feel brand new even though its a used one. Thats the good thing about used snowboards even though it is used once you find that good one for you you hit up the slopes and it feels wonderful riding in it like its a brand new board.
