How flex in boards relate to flex in bindings etc?
I'm trying to understand why softer/more flexible boards are better for beginners.
Board flex makes it easier to turn, needing less effort to make the board do what you want, but how do flexible bindings play into that equation? Wouldn't stiff bindings and a flexible board work better?
The soft boot part I get, you want to be able to bend a boot in order to flex a snowboard, you don't want to be putting all you effort into moving in a boot, but the binding part confuses me.
(I'm a beginner boarder. Only been out 5-6 times. Just learned to link heel and toe edge turns comfortably last week.)
