A person hoping to create and customize his own board can do so by following the process outlined below. A first-time snowboard designer should expect to make a few mistakes. It may be wise to consider the first board as primarily a learning experience and focus on making the second board the one for actual use. Here are the basic steps used to design and create snowboards: Outline the wood - Buy a 4-foot by 8-foot slab of wood that is approximately 6 inches thick. Outline on the wood the shape of the snowboard that is to be created. It is often easiest to outline an existing board and then make small modifications after this outline has been completed.
K2 is another brand that is popular with snowboarders. Again they offer a variety of other accessories besides just a board. The K2 snowboards are less expensive than the Burton snowboards but you can still expect to pay a couple of hundred dollars plus tax. They come with cool graphics. You can find some great deals on K2 boards but they do have some minor defects; however if they do you are definitely notified before purchase. Determining what type of snowboard will work best for you can be a little confusing if you dont ask for help. Talk to someone who knows what they are talking about and they should be able to suggest what will work best for you. Your shoe size will help to determine how wide you will want your board.
Boots and Bindings for your Snowboards You are going to be looking for boots that fit your feet as close as possible not too loose. If your boots are loose you will not have the needed control and if they are too tight you will be in misery. This is really important...size!!!! They also need to be able to keep your feet warm so when looking at boots dont always rely on the cheaper price tag as they may not be warm enough. Look for a good lining in your boot as well as some good cushion. The boots need to be flexible and allow you good control for speed and direction of your board. When the boots are too stiff you will have a greater risk of falling. Your binding will be determined by the boot you choose. Try on all your options in the store before taking them out on the snow. Also make sure the store offers a good return policy before you purchase. If your boots dont work then you wont be out the money. Again for a beginner check out the used snowboard boots and bindings.
You can go on eBay which not only shows pictures and useful information on the product that youre buying but there are a variety of used snowboard and other snowboarding accessories. Another one is Craigslist if you live in the states. Craigslist you can even meet with the person youre buying from and see for yourself what the board will even look like and test it out. The important thing to check for when buying a used snowboard is of course if there is any damage on the board. Make sure when checking around the board remove the bindings to see if there dents or cracks on the bindings removes any stickers to see if there are any damage on the board. If you get lucky you might find a perfect board for you and itll feel brand new even though its a used one. Thats the good thing about used snowboards even though it is used once you find that good one for you you hit up the slopes and it feels wonderful riding in it like its a brand new board.
