Having a directional form means that tips of boards are not similar from its end. In free rides the end is normally more slim shorter and flat compared to the tilt of the snowboard. Because of this the stand on free ride snowboard is generally balances headed for the back of the snowboard. Nevertheless free ride snowboards may be ridden in spite of their directional forms. These snowboards are generally fairly flexible and can be maneuvered easily by beginners however hard enough to make a fast twirl in firm snow. These types of boards bridge the space between Alpine and Freestyle but it is not steady as carving board and it is also not alert like freestyle snowboard.
It is things like this that normal people would not consider that you will need the help for. Dont be afraid to ask. Purchasing a board is a big investment so you will not want to make a mistake. You will want to make sure that you purchase one that is right for you since they do cost several hundred dollars or more. The type of board that you will want also depends upon what type of snowboarding you are planning on doing. Are you just basically going to free ride? Free riding snowboards are different than free style boards. Free ride snowboards are longer in length and semi directional. They are perfect for different types of snow conditions and long fast turns. Free style snowboards are usually shorter in length and semi directions with a twin tip shape. They come in different types of flex and are better for short tight turns. They are great for use in the pipes and for tricks and stunts. Then there is the all mountain board which is in between the free style and the free ride snowboards. They are generally good for all types of terrain. Deciding on the right board for you will more than likely require the help of a professional who sells them; at least for the purchase of your first board. After that you should know more about what will work best for you and you can do it on your own.
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.
