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.
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.
For example if you want a freestyle board it is best to go with a freestyle boot. If you are sticking with the all mountain type of board you may want to get an all mountain boot or all purpose boot. This type of boot can be used with any style of board. However some boards use boots that are more similar to ski boots. These boots are usually used for slalom downhill snowboards. Along with the boot the binding can also be very important. I like to build my board from the boot down in order to maximize comfort and fit. To do this I choose a comfortable boot first and then make sure my boot fits well in the biding. This is the best way to build your snowboard setup and it will ensure more fun on the mountain.
