IM a Newbie

I just started snowboarding like a week ago, but I dont got my own board. I cant keep renting crap boards that dont stop or turn. The thing is I dont know which board is good for me. I would do alot of park and some mountain when i have the time and the money. If anyone has a type of board,or manufacturer that be good for a beggginer.

um i belive the boards didnt stop or turn, because you are newbie. shitty boards will still stop and turn, theyll just be sloppy.

Take yourself to higher places.

U should learn how to properly ride before you make an investment. It's not the rental boards fault, it's the riders fault that it won't stop or turn. Boards don't really do any of the work for u. When u do go searching for boards to buy, look at some of the cheaper, all mountain Burtons.
