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.
But if you really have to put a lot of weight into it than it is probably a little too stiff for what you want. If you are shopping at an online snowboarding store check the board review or product description. Usually they will say something about the flex of the board. Or they might have a ratings system where they rate the torsional(side to side) flex and the longitudinal(tip to tail) flex. The higher the number the more flexible it is. The bottom line is that the best beginner snowboard is one that is easier to turn. The first and most basic aspect of snowboarding is turning but for someone just starting out it can be difficult. Buy snowboards that are softer and they will make learning to turn easier. And the good thing is is that most entry level to mid-ranged priced snowboards have a softer flex so you wont have to break the bank to get a snowboard. Good Luck and Have Fun.
Snowboarding is becoming increasingly popular each year. When the sport was first developed there were very few manufacturers of the snowboard. Nowadays we are seeing an increase in the makers of snowboards and different aspects are being incorporated into the production of the new snowboards.

You are sure to grab attention with a Burton board. Burton also offers apparel and snowboarding accessories such as bags to transport and store your board in. Expect to pay upwards of several hundred dollars for a Burton snowboard; however there are places where you can purchase discount Burton boards or even used Burton snowboards and this can save you quite a bit of money.
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.
