You are going to buy a snowboard. First you need to define the terrain for skiing and honestly and accurately determine your level of skill of skating. If you can, and plan to perform a large number of tricks, you need a board short. And the shorter it is, the more things you plan to execute. If most of you are going to ride it in the mountains, then fits over elongated snowboard (freeride).
One of the main parameters, which will optimally choose a successful snowboard, this is your weight. This recommended rate is often even appear in your list of important technical parameters on which you can buy the right snowboard. Also, your mastery of skating significantly affects the choice of the rigidity of the snowboard. For beginners and confident snowboarders fit the soft and medium hardness. What a virtuoso you own a board, the harder you can afford use. High stiffness allows a good ride on a dense, hard snow.
Soft boards are suitable to perform simple tricks and jumps to the same with this board is easy to learn these same tricks and jumps to do. Soft Snowboard is easy to operate and suitable for riding in deep snow. Buy Snowboard unsuitable width – let the money. Too wide board would be difficult to manage, but in a too-narrow feet will touch the snow, not appropriate. Width of the snowboard is selected correctly set at his feet in the shoes outside the edge of no more than a half inch and not less than one centimeter, plus or minus three millimeters. Another value – side radius (sidecut radius of the circle sidecut). Than it is deeper, the better your ability to perform on this board precise turns. With a radius of less than 9 millimeters in turn will be more difficult than with a larger radius. At the same time depth of the sidecut makes the thinner middle part of the snowboard ("waist"), and feet should ideally be placed in the middle, so it's important to buy a snowboard with the right blend of lateral radius and the size of "waist".
