Snowboarding is a fun sport but it is also an expensive one. Some people become interested in the sport and really want to try it out but are amazed by how much a new snowboard costs and all the gear that you need to prepare for it. Its a big investment and if youre a person starting out it may be the better option if you buy a used snowboard to get a feel of what kind of board you want before investing in your perfect snowboard. If you are a beginner its a great idea to buy a used snowboard instead of a new one if youre coming off new to this sport. Plus we all know how expensive buying a new snowboard can be. Hundreds of dollars spent for a new one is a big and risky investment and if youre new buying a used snowboard may be the better option. Buying a used snowboard will save you tons of money and may even get you familiarized with the sport itself first.
Snowboards for beginners can cost top dollar but they dont have to. In fact they probably shouldnt. It is easy to think that the best beginner snowboard should be one of the more expensive boards. The logic behind that theory is that the more it cost the better the quality the better the quality the easier it will be to snowboard. However for snowboarding that theory doesnt work at least not for beginners snowboards. It is true that as the price of snowboards go up so does the quality of the material used in making snowboards. The quality of a snowboard though is not a big of issue for a beginner as it is for a more advanced rider. One good reason to buy the lower to mid ranged priced snowboards is that you might not like snowboarding and why invest a lot of money on a snowboard if you arent really sure that your going to be into the sport.
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.
