Default 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..

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.

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..
