This is a great way to be able to get that "cool" one that you want that you can show off and brag about as well. You can act like youre a pro because you have the same boards that the pros use. Isnt that cool? Snowboarding is an extreme sport and having a variety of different styles available for use is also a good idea. You could have your practice boards and then you could have the boards that you only use for competitions. By purchasing used snowboards it will allow you to afford to have a variety to choose from and to use to help you get that edge that you want over your competition. Dont forget about the possibility of causing damage to your board.
For example if you want a freestyle board it is best to go with a freestyle boot. If you are sticking with the all mountain type of board you may want to get an all mountain boot or all purpose boot. This type of boot can be used with any style of board. However some boards use boots that are more similar to ski boots. These boots are usually used for slalom downhill snowboards. Along with the boot the binding can also be very important. I like to build my board from the boot down in order to maximize comfort and fit. To do this I choose a comfortable boot first and then make sure my boot fits well in the biding. This is the best way to build your snowboard setup and it will ensure more fun on the mountain.
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.
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.
