So, im getting a snowboard, and i went to a guy that sells them second hand, took some pics, but since this is my first one, i dont know much about them, so can anyone tell me which one is the best out of these, and what the prices are? Here's the pic of the rest: http://i.imgur.com/YWP8ijG.jpg
just pick a medium sized one, cant go wrong with that. I have noticed more advanced boarderds tend to pick larger boards, but sometimes have troubles in pipes and funparks..
also have you ever skateboarded? Look which foot you put in front, it will be the same for snowboarding. Although your binds can be adjusted anytime for your preference
Belgium got it again. Larger boards more stable+faster, good for hills, small boards lighter+easier to turn/control, better for halfpipes but really it comes down to personal preference. Much more important to make sure their aren't scars up and down it
sports shop fag here. If you're a beginner, rule of the thumb is the board should roughly have the length of 145-155cm(for a grown up man). You also need to check if the bindings fit your boot size.
All of these boards are probably crappy but they will suffice for a beginner. I'd go with the green one.
that's called 'goofy' stance. Then definitely dont pick the one ive crossed through, because on that board it will be impossible i reckon to stand with your right in front because of that one stumped end there i circled.
And it seems every board in that pic is currently in 'regular' stance, so you'll have to adjust the binds for your stance when you buy one and start boarding.
Also prepare to go on your ass for 3 days straight before you can manage a decent turn
did some research just now and it appears i overestimated those prices indeed
a friend just bought a brand new board for 700 and was going of that price.
but i dont think you can buy a board for 30, unless the seller is a chump
It seems like the green one is 152cm, and that a brand new one on the web is around 7.490 din which is around 60euro ( with boots). Heres the link:
