Taking the plunge and buying your first snowboard can be a pretty daunting task. There are just so many boards on the market, and each one claims that they’re the absolute best. And while we can’t promise these snowboards will have you riding like Anna Gasser after one day on the slopes, they are boards that’ll ease you in with a gentle learning curve.
There are several features that lend themselves well to an entry level snowboard. You’ll generally want to go for a softer flexing model, to give you a bit more leeway. A stiffer board will channel rider input quicker and won’t be as mellow while you’re still getting to grips with the sideways slide.
There isn’t a right or wrong with regards to the profile of the board, although you’ll probably want to steer clear of an aggressive, full camber model. Having a hybrid, flat or rockered board will loosen things up for you as you’re riding and are easier to learn on as they won’t be so catchy. A little bit of rocker in the nose and tail will lift the ends of the board out of the snow, giving you a bit smoother turn initiation.
