* Freeriding: This style entails riding almost any terrain, but spending most of the time on the ground rather than in the air. If you're a first-timer, this is your style.
* Freestyle: This involves lots of tricks, spins and time spent in the snowboard park. Usually, the boards associated with freestyling have twin tips (that is, identical nose and tail shapes) for riding forward and backward. Freestylers also spend a lot of time in the air. This is an advanced "trick" style, for which you'll need a trick board.
* Alpine/freecarving/racing: Unlike the other styles, alpine riding is concerned with going very fast; to this end, alpine boards are much narrower and longer than other types, and use a hard boot and binding system (like skis).
thought this would be helpful to you.
I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.
