Choosing the right snowboard

Today, many people love snowboarding. Whether you want to meet friends to enjoy the great outdoors or take part in serious competitions, snowboarding has it all. And no matter what your background, snowboarding offers new ways to enjoy the slopes.

Before snowboarding you should have the right equipment, including the right snowboard or a board, boots, and binding. Having the right equipment can mean the difference between having a positive experience and having an off-putting experience on the hill.

When it's time to choose snowboard, there are several types of snowboards available in the market. Most boards fall into one of four categories: freeride, freestyle, alpine riding, and racing. Freestyle boards are generally shorter. Alpine and racing boards are generally longer. When choosing a snowboard, two important factors to consider are the board's length and width. Your correct board length is a function of your height, weight, and ability, and your intended use.
