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.
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.
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.
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.
