Perhaps that brave heart MJ Burchett hadnt a clue when he put his life into risk and invented what is now known and celebrated as x-treme games. Way back in 1929 strapped a simple wooden plank to his feet and lurched forward to slide down snow clad hill. He probably couldnt help kick starting a new business in the snowboards arena. Snowboarding gears and equipments are not hard to choose from if you are a pro. For the new comers it would not be an easy choice with so much to choose from. Of course like all sincere beginners they would have read so much about how and what to buy and a few will also get their seniors/coaches to accompany them to the stores.
A con about buying used snowboards is that you wont get to pick your own design. Of course used ones are the ones the previous owner having the board with their design but if youre starting off that wont matter much since youre just experimenting and testing to see what kind of board is right for you when you start off with this sport. As time goes on you have more experience and a good feel of what is good and bad for you in a board and then you can invest in a new snowboard for you since snowboards are not cheap when they are brand new. But remember like I said there are always discounts lurking around. You just have to find them. For beginners like I said in the earlier articles you want a short board just like freestylers since it will be easy for you to maneuver. Also boot size is also important when picking out a used snowboard since not all boards are the same sizes. You dont want your toes and heels to be grinding against the snow when you ride. Itll be a pain in the ass.
You always want to make sure that your keeper is in good condition before you use it. By purchasing used snowboards you will be able to replace your damaged snowboards for a fraction of the price. No matter what the brand color or design that you want you will probably being able to find a used version of it somewhere over the internet. You may have to launch a full search and it may take time to locate the board that you want but in the end you will find it and the time spent locating it will be well worth it. So go ahead and build your snowboard collection today by purchasing used snowboards and save money while you do so.
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.
