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.
The smaller size of the mini boards allows the rider to perform tricks better. The boards are a lighter weight board than the full size boards. The mini boards are highly flexible and allow the rider to have versatility and more maneuverability in those tight spaces and turns. The mini boards offer the centered stance position which allows the boarder to maintain balance better to apply more pressure in the center of the board while on the rails and boxes and just overall gives the rider more control in the park setting. The mini boards are usually a combination board that is designed for freestyle and freeride; however you can still find the ones that offer the option of all mountains as well. You dont have to just keep these little boards in the park; they can handle the powder as well. You have to remember that the mini boards are usually the youth version and kids too like the mountain.
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.
It is things like this that normal people would not consider that you will need the help for. Dont be afraid to ask. Purchasing a board is a big investment so you will not want to make a mistake. You will want to make sure that you purchase one that is right for you since they do cost several hundred dollars or more. The type of board that you will want also depends upon what type of snowboarding you are planning on doing. Are you just basically going to free ride? Free riding snowboards are different than free style boards. Free ride snowboards are longer in length and semi directional. They are perfect for different types of snow conditions and long fast turns. Free style snowboards are usually shorter in length and semi directions with a twin tip shape. They come in different types of flex and are better for short tight turns. They are great for use in the pipes and for tricks and stunts. Then there is the all mountain board which is in between the free style and the free ride snowboards. They are generally good for all types of terrain. Deciding on the right board for you will more than likely require the help of a professional who sells them; at least for the purchase of your first board. After that you should know more about what will work best for you and you can do it on your own.
