Choosing a snowboard is not such a formidable task as it may seem at first sight. It is enough only to stick to basic rules.
Firstly, you need to decide how and where you'll ride. There are several styles: freestyle, Freeride and frikarv.
Depending on what style you prefer, determines the type of Board you want to purchase. The main characteristic of boards is its hardness. Hard boards suitable for slalom and frikarva (i.e. styles, where an important part is played by speed). Soft will become the ideal choice for freestyle and freeride.
A significant role in selecting the Board shape plays.
