CMCM Any review on what it was like?
Less stable? Does it feel like the snowboard version of ski blades?
Or any other options on it from anyone- I just saw one in a store near me for a good price used.
Might be fun.

tecknojoe Sorry, I dont use this forum in the summer so I just saw this post

I would NOT recommend this for a beginner to learn on. It will teach bad habits. It doesn't react the same as a regular sized snowboard at all.

ScottyDuzntNo Hey, I'm looking for some advice on this board. If anyone has some info it would be helpful. I started learning to board this season and my girlfriend wanted to learn with me as well. So she has been out everytime that i have been. But she is having trouble with it especially with her turning. I found this board online and there's not too much info about it online, but from what i heard, for skier's sometimes it's easier to learn on "snow blades" (a little bit wider ski's and a lot shorter, around 80-90cm), they're supposed to be easier to turn on because they're smaller and they don't go as fast.

Wasn't sure if maybe the same concept would go for this Mini Snowboard, could it be easier for her to learn on and then after she gets the hang of it go back and use her big board? I found a women's version of the board and it's only $99.99 and i really wouldn't mind shelling out the cash to help her learn. Hopefully this could be the answer.

SB4L Thanks for this review, the house still has them on sale for same price. Seriously considering one of these now... It's like the price of a snow-skate

thrift shops. I see little kids boards all the time. Someone I know just picked up a Burton 121 with boots and bindings for $25 last week.

Aww how cute a 16 year old called me a douche. Let me know when your balls drop and you want to step into the ring.

I guess it's not for everyone. I'm a grown up with a big boy job and only go snowboarding for fun, so I'm not concerned if I can't take it off the "real jumps". That's what my other board is for, and it does just fine for all the jumps I need to take it on. The mini isn't meant for high speed or big jumps, it's not stable. Don't know what's with the hate when it's just a fun way to spend your time while teaching a beginner how to ride.
