Alpine Carving and Race Board Carving boards have narrow space compared to freestyle and also free ride snowboards. Their elongated narrow and hard build are configured in favor of higher paces and cleaner fixed turns. Because of this carving snowboards permit rapid edge turns fast greater border-holding power to the solid snow and fine stability for velocity. Carving boards are also called alpine boards the boards will almost appear like a blown up ski. They were created in both balanced and unbalanced styles and with a tendency to have only a spade in the nose.

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.
