Types of Snowboards and Equipment

Find the board that fits your body

Three different types of snowboards exist for athletes to choose from: freestyle, freeride (all mountain), and alpine (carving) boards. The type of board you choose depends on what you plan on doing with it and where you plan on doing it. Let these shopping suggestions get you started:

Balance - While balance and turns are important, the real drama of snowboarding is the speed. Inching down the hill will land you on your tail - everything gets easier the faster you go. Practice balance and strengthen your legs by filling a large soft drink bottle with water, sealing it and placing it under the board. Try balancing your board on the water bottle. Muscles - Leg exercises help snowboarders develop into better athletes. Squats build leg muscles, which become easily fatigued when powder boarding. At places such as ∗Whistler[Skiing and Snowboarding -Overview -Our top 10 favorite ski destinations - Whistler-Blackcomb , BC ] , thirty minute runs can burn you legs into rubber. Weather - Weather conditions rank high on our scale of assessment - especially if you're a novice. For the most part, snowboarding on hard frost can be painful. The more skilled you become, the more easily you'll make friends with ice. Manufacturers now make snowboards with serrated edges that carve through the ice as opposed to sliding on it. Kids - Kids are quick learners and the younger you start most sports, the better. However, snowboarding requires intense balance that many children find difficult. Don't frustrate your child if they just can't get it. Slap on a pair of skis and try again later, rather than leave a bad taste in their mouths. Younger learners possess less body coordination and tend to pick up snowboarding later than teens or adults.
