Board experience levels

Why would a advanced board be a bad idea to ride for a beginner snowboarder? Ive seen people bash boards on reviews and other people reply that the board is to advanced for them.

many reasons, some have a crazy sidecut, a fast base, a stiff flex..sometimes boards can control the rider if they dont know what they are doing..

Lib Tech Skate banana
Flow NXT-FS
Nike kaiju
Burton [ak] 2l Cyclic Jacket

Depending on the board, the edge bevel can be wrong for a beginner also, especially if it is an advanced all mountain/freeride board. Learning on a stiff freeride board with a 1 degree edge bevel would just be a painful experience

This primeraly only counrs for freeride snowboards.. Becouse freestyle snowboards are not ment to be fast and are really flexable, there actually really good beginnerboards.. A bigger can ride a burton clash or a burton x8.. Wenfreeride boards come into question its a diffrent matter.. For the reasons stated above.

So it depens on what sort board ur getting..

Thanks for the info. I already have a board. Ive been out about 6 times. And I dont really feel like Im progressing. I have a 07? Eddie Wall Forum Destroyer. And Ive seen ppl describe it as a heavy stiff brick. Which kinda seems that way to me. Ill ride this board till next year and decide if I wanna hit the park hard b4 I look around for a new board. You JMac really got me wanting a Stairmaster tho.

the most important thing to realize is its not about what you want but about what you need

That's exactly what Im thinking. Thats why I think I should wait to get a new board. Those soft boards just seem like so much fun.

The same "rules" that apply to freeride boards also apply to freestyle boards.

A Nitro Wiig is definitely not something for a beginner.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

all nitros freestyle boards are generly stiffer then other freestyle boards by other brands. so there obviously not gonna be as good as other more flexible boards..
