Sims snowboards seems to be one of the most reasonable priced snowboard companies on the market today. You can easily locate a Sims snowboard through several different retailers across the internet. The prices on the snowboards are actually very reasonable with some snowboards costing $200 or less for a full size mens board. Thats a great deal compared to many other manufacturers. Sims offers womens snowboards that are specifically designed with their lighter and smaller frames in mind. The snowboards themselves are narrower designed for smaller feet and better fit. The lighter weight helps with the versatility and maneuverability of the snowboard; however they can have more progressive cuts and be made out of more advanced materials which in turn allow women to keep up with the men if they want.
They are good for doing tricks and are generally softer and shorter for than other boards allowing riders to turn twist and flip easily. There are also freeride boards. These boards are generally longer and sometimes are directional (meaning they are meant primarily to be ridden one direction). They are more stable at high speeds. Lastly there are powder boards which are designed for deep soft snow. They are usually wider and bigger in order to give you the correct float. Snowboard size is critical when purchasing a new board as each style requires a different size depending on your weight and ability. Most boards these days have their own chart which can help to guide you. Be sure to also ask a snowboard sizing expert at the store before making the purchase. There are also many different types of snowboard boots on the market that complement each type of riding style.
Two years after its launch Roxy started making gear for snow sports. In 2003 they started putting out snowboards all very similarly styled to their clothing line. It was a surprise for many people in the industry to see a company devote itself entirely to one gender but their style and manufacturing credits more on that in a bit earned them enough buyers to keep going. Now they have become entrenched in the marketplace and offer a full line from entry boards to boards pros would shred on. But first back to that manufacturing thing. Roxy isnt a cheap brand churned out by the warehouse-load. They are made by Mervin Manufacturing the same guys who give us some of the incredible technology behind hyper-popular boards like the Lib Tech Banana and top-end GNU boards.
The smaller size of the mini boards allows the rider to perform tricks better. The boards are a lighter weight board than the full size boards. The mini boards are highly flexible and allow the rider to have versatility and more maneuverability in those tight spaces and turns. The mini boards offer the centered stance position which allows the boarder to maintain balance better to apply more pressure in the center of the board while on the rails and boxes and just overall gives the rider more control in the park setting. The mini boards are usually a combination board that is designed for freestyle and freeride; however you can still find the ones that offer the option of all mountains as well. You dont have to just keep these little boards in the park; they can handle the powder as well. You have to remember that the mini boards are usually the youth version and kids too like the mountain.
