All Mountain vs. Park I understand.. Where does Free Riding fit in?
Ok, in buying my first two boards and currently shopping for bindings I'm trying to build a model up of the different characteristics of snowboard setups.. (Naturally nothing will beat experience)
So here are the two extremes as I understand them..
- At one end is a long, fairly rigid all mountain board (probably cambered) with stiff bindings (highbacks I think) that one would use for bombing down mountains.
- The other extreme is a smaller, softer board (probably RC) with looser bindings, that you'd use in the park for responsiveness and forgiveness.
Where does free riding fit into this?
I see people saying some bindings are fine for all mountain, but not free riding? I'm assuming as there is powder, it should have softer bindings, but perhaps a long board?
Would appreciate some help here!
