Once forgotten this technology is now back with the DC boards. DC boards come with a variety of different cores and finishes. Some boards incorporate the use of Kevlar strips while others offer forgiving flex capabilities that are perfect for every board rider out there today. You will be able to have a board that will last you a while and that will be fun to ride. DC offers all mountain park and other types of boards; however their emphasis seems to be leaning more towards the park aspect of snowboarding. (Hmm wonder why?) However even though they lean more towards the park rider DC snowboards are able to stand up to the terrain outside of the park as well so dont let the description fool you. A DC snowboard can be used in other snowboarding terrain and not just in the park. DCs 4400 sintered base is available in almost each and every snowboard that they manufacture. This base is fast and easy to maintain which makes the DC snowboard that much more desirable. If you are looking for that fashion statement that a snowboard can provide then DC snowboards is the way to go. They offer some really cool designs and graphics that are sure to turn heads wherever you may play. They can be somewhat laid back as an undertone but the DC logo itself can stand alone.
You may not have heard of Roxy snowboards unless youre a girl. And that is pretty rare among snowboard companies. You see Roxy is a snowboard line dedicated entirely to the ladies. While every company out there makes boards for women they dont dedicate an entire brand line to it. Rome Burton K2 all these big companies offer womens boards. Roxy sets itself apart by offering nothing else. But does this rare specialization mean a legit go-to company for girls or is it just an overpriced gimmick trying to pull in buyers with cutesy graphics? In order to figure that out youll have to delve into the history of Roxy a little. As a fashion line from Quiksilver Roxy has definitely made its name in sports apparel.
Are you ready to hit the slopes? You ready to try out the snowboarding that seems to be the hottest sport in the winter? Well then before you start forking out the big money for your equipment save a few dollars and start off with some great used snowboards. Here in this article I will give you a list of what kind of equipment you need before you jump in the snow and begin your great adventure. New and Used Snowboards First we will start off with the types of snowboards. There are three of the basic type boards which vary in the shapes of the tips and tails as well as the width. Each snowboard is made for the different types of boarding. If you are a beginner you would be best off with a freestyle snowboard which has no front or back of the board. They are easy to use handle well and very easy to turn making this the best choice for the beginner snowboarder.
But if you are an experienced rider it depends on your riding style that if you want to get a new board or not. If you do competitions and what not I suggest you buy a used board since you can do a lot of experimenting with it and you can have a variety of board which you can use for the competitions or when you actually go to the slopes to ride for fun. The thing about buying a used snowboard is that if you cant find one locally like the classified ads youre going to have to go online. In my earlier posts I talked about how crucial it is to know your right snowboard sizing when picking out a board and if you cant test the board youre buying its going to take a bit harder work for you. But going online to buy your used snowboard is a great idea because there are a bunch of deals out there waiting for you.
