And it is always vital to a company to have great riders because the feedback they provide can help the company really take it to the next level. But the bottom line with snowboards any company or line is that it is the rider who determines whether or not the board is any good. You can make the argument that almost any snowboard company is good so long as they make boards that fit their niche. Roxys niche is the lady boarder looking for a quality board maybe one with some appealing graphics. If you like the look you have to ride one. Thats the only way you can really know if the board works for you. A Roxy snowboard is just like any other snowboard you can fall off it or you can fall in love with it. Sometimes its both.
Snowboards can be very expensive no matter what brand you buy. Using the internet is a great way to locate and purchase used snowboards for a fraction of the original price. You can still get a great used snowboard for an even better price. Buying a used board is actually better than buying a new one if you are just starting out in the sport.

When you become better then you can purchase a new snowboard and by then you will better skilled therefore allowing you to take care of your investment better.
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.
