A second and even better reason why to buy the lower to mid ranged snowboards is that they are usually softer. By softer they are more flexible. A common theme among all snowboards for beginners is that they are flexible because it is easier to learn how to turn on a softer more flexible board. Entry level snowboards cost from $150-$250 and mid-ranged snowboards cost from $250-$450. If you are shopping at a local snowboard store ask the shop crew to show you the more flexible or softer snowboards. You can test how flexible they are by setting the tail on the ground and grabbing the tip and push it down. If the board starts to flex without putting too much muscle into it than it is considered a soft 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.
Sims boards have cool graphics which tend to be more on the darker and laid back side as well. You wont see too much of the highly funky designs that many other companies are known for. The Sims boards seem to be somewhat tamer in the graphic design aspect of the boards. But the cool pictures dont affect the capabilities of the board. Yes you may want that eye catching board that provides a trendy new one-of-a-kind look; however technical aspects that enable better functionality are more important and desirable in a board than that of a cool or funky graphic. Sims offers all three basic types of boards in a variety of different construction options and flex capabilities. The type of board you choose will determine what construction and flex you will receive. There are charts that are available on various websites that will help you determine the specific qualities of various snowboards such as the flex and the type of finish that it has. The Sims brand really does offer a UV coating protection on the snowboard. Other boards may also do this but Sims advertises this fact and offers it pretty much on every single snowboard that they manufacturer.
