How To Pick A Snowboard

Every rider is different, and to each individual one of these factors may be more important the others. But all three need some thought when picking your snowboard. This article goes over the details of each consideration:

Seek out a snowboard well-suited for where and how you usually ride. Traditionally snowboards and skis have been categorized by ability level: beginner, intermediate or advanced. This is not the case anymore. Today, snowboards should be selected to be compatible with the terrain a boarder usually rides. Accordingly, most people categorize snowboards as follows:

All-mountain: Designed for exploring any terrain, from groomed runs to untracked back country to the park and pipe. This category is sometimes also referred to as all-mountain/freestyle. Because of their versatility, the vast majority of boarders ride all-mountain boards.

Freestyle/park: These boards are made for the half pipe, rails, boxes, jumps, spins and tricks—the right tool for anyone who wants to push their limits within terrain parks. These boards are often lighter and shorter than other snowboards and sometimes more flexible. Some manufacturers lump freestyle and all-mountain boards into the same category.
Note: Many freestyle/park boards are designed with rocker, which indicates an upturned nose and tail. Rocker is usually beneficial in the park making it easier to navigate boxes and rails.

Free ride: For riders principally attracted to back country terrain plus traveling fast on groomed runs. Free ride boards are designed for directional (downhill) riding only. They are typically stiff and not intended for terrain parks or jibbing.

I personally love park riding. I recommend you rent a board first and find out what type of riding you like. With new found information you should have no trouble picking a new or first board. I hope this article helps with your selection! See you on the slopes.
