Christy Sports has been carrying snowboards since the beginning, so our experts put a lot of thought into our selection of boards. Whether you’re looking for the best all mountain snowboard, park snowboard, or powder snowboard, you’re going to find it at Christy Sports. We carry the best picks for both beginner and expert snowboarders.
How to Buy a Snowboard
When you’re shopping for a new snowboard, there are a lot of things to consider, but the biggest question you need to ask yourself is, “What kind of terrain will I be riding the most?” The type of terrain you want to ride will dramatically impact what snowboard is right for you. If you like to bomb down groomed runs at light speed, consider more of an all mountain shaped snowboard. If you want to progess your terrain park talents, consider a twin shaped park snowboard. If you want to ride deep snow, consider a powder board or freeride snowboard.
Snowboards get reinvented and packed with innovative new technologies every year. The way a snowboard is built impacts the way it performs. Be sure to read or ask about the technology that makes up your snowboard to determine if it will be right for you. Check out the stiffness ratings. If you’re look for more of a jibbing-friendly snowboard, look for a snowboard with a softer flex, but if you’re looking to charge down the hill, look for a snowboard with a stiff flex rating.
Whichever type of snowboard you decide to go with, know that Christy Sports chooses only the best snowboards from the top snowboard brands in the industry. We have an impressive stock of Burton, Never Summer, K2, Capita, Ride, and more. Reach out to us on chat if you have any questions!
