When I first started snowboarding back in 1992 I was about the only person on the Mountain give or take a few people. Since then snowboarding has progressed so much that there are often as many (if not more) snowboarders on the mountain than skiiers. Today they make many different types of snowboards for each style of snowboarding and it is important to pay attention to this when you are buying a snowboard. All mountain snowboards are designed to work anywhere on the slopes. This is the type of snowboard I would recommend starting with as a beginner or if you are someone that wants one board that can do everything. Freestyle snowboards are boards that are designed to work in terrain parks and in half pipes.
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.
Cut it - Using a table saw cut out the outline of the snowboard. It is important to follow the outline exactly. If there are a few jagged edges this is ok. They will be cut down a little bit later. Try to keep the edges as smooth and as round as possible. Sand it - For sanding a snowboard it is best to buy an electric sander. Sanding one of these boards is a process that can take quite a bit of time. In order for the board to ride smoothly down a hill it must be as smooth as possible. Place the boots - Take the snowboard boots and place them on the snowboard shoulder width apart. Some people will put the boots on and stand on the board to get the best feel. However a person needs to make sure that his or her dominant leg is on the back of the board and not the front. Screw in the boots - For best results a person should screw about five screws in per boot.
Snowboards can be very expensive no matter what brand you buy. Using the internet is a great way to locate and purchase used snowboards for a fraction of the original price. You can still get a great used snowboard for an even better price. Buying a used board is actually better than buying a new one if you are just starting out in the sport. There is no sense in spending the money on a new one until you know that you are going to like the sport you can do the sport and that you are going to stick with the sport. When you become better then you can purchase a new snowboard and by then you will better skilled therefore allowing you to take care of your investment better.
