If you are a snowboard beginner, we would suggest you rent your snowboard gear the first couple of times you go down the slopes. After a few times riding on the mountains, you will have a better understanding of what snowboarding is all about. Once you are ready to commit, then you can decide on purchasing your own snowboard gear.
It is also sufficient to rent your gear until you are fully comfortable. Sometimes it is wise to try out different size snowboards. The longer the board, the faster the speed and the more difficult to turn. Start with a shorter snowboard and ease your way to a larger one. In order to get the right size for you, position the snowboard vertically with one end on the floor. Stand the board up to you and make sure the other tip of the board is parallel to your chin. Note that if the tip rises to your nose, it will be more difficult to maneuver the board on the slopes.
With that said, let’s fast-forward to the good part. Let’s assume you are already comfortable and would like to purchase a snowboard and all the other needed items.
-Snow Suit (Warm Jacket and Snow Pants)
-Helmet or some type of head gear
-Snow Goggles (optional)
Buying these items can be tricky so be sure to do as much research as possible. Search reviews on items you find to make sure they provide great quality. Look through different websites and stores to ensure you are getting a bargain. Here are a list of places where you can begin your search for snowboard gear.
1] Ebay.com – You will be surprised on the deals this site promotes. The website provides great quality gear, but just make sure you are purchasing from an individual who has high selling reviews and history.
2] ProBoardShop.com – This website has a tremendous amount of variety, however the prices are not as cheap as Ebay. The good thing about this site is that it provides the buyer with 40% off on snowboard gear so you definitely leave happy.
3] Trusnow.com – Another great website that promotes great deals with percentages off the tagged price.
Another alternative would be to drive to stores that sell outdoor gear. Locate these stores close to you and pay a visit to see what these shops have to offer. One store that is guaranteed to be near is Sports Authority. This store is a great place to find all types of outdoor gear including snowboards etc. We hope this provided assistance to you in your quest to purchase the best!
