Looking for your first beginners snowboard? When you are new to snowboarding, it can be overwhelming visiting a snowboarding shop and staring at all those different boards on offer. Where is the best place to start?
Buying a snowboard isn’t just about buying the board – you will have to invest in snowboard bindings, snowboarding jacket, snowboarding boots, snowboarding helmet and probably a snowboard bag to carry it on planes.
Some people prefer to rent a snowboard when they are first starting out. However, if you think you might go snowboarding more than three or four times, then it is definitely worth buying your own board.
While it’s great to do research like reading this article before you buy your first board, the best thing to do is get down to your local snowboarding shop. The sales assistants there will be able to help you choose a snowboard that suits your size and ability.
