Newbie Looking for feedback on Snowboards
Hey guys and gals . Its great to have finally found a snowboard forum . I have a question I am hoping fellow snowboarders can answer for me . I am a few weeks away from purchasing snowboarding equipment . I am just having a hard time figuring out what snowboard to buy .
I am new to this sport , have gone a few times . Certainly not a slope demon yet , but I know I am going to stick with the sport so I dont want to buy a cheap board that will get trashed . I would like a good quality board without going overboard on a snowboard based on just its name .
I have heard people say ..................... If you are new dont buy a K2 , buy a RIDE board , Burton boards are nice , but they are too expensive etc......... So my question is I have seen DC boards , Burton , Ride , K2 , Rossignol , Saloman , etc.. What is a good board for someone like me ? I dont know enough about the sport to understand much about the grooves of the board , and what a board is made of , so I dont know if that helps or not . Although I know most people ask what kind of riding I will be doing , and the answer is STRICTLY mountain boarding . Another words I wont be doing crazy stuff , just on beginners slopes for quite awhile . If anyone could give me feedback on what board is good for someone in my shoes , and what boards suck and all that I would appreciate it . Thanks so much . I am excited to now have a forum to ask my questions to . Thanks everyone
