    Hi, I’m new to the snowboarding scene and have fallen in love with it! There is a board pack for sale however I’m not sure if it’s a good board for me to start out on. I’m 5’8” - 70kg so I’m thinking of a 153-157cm board? The board I found is a 155 Burton Cruzer however not too sure on the...

    I started snowboarding last week. I bought the season pass for Big Bear, i already went twice this week and I love it, so I plan on going more often. I have an old, beat up, Ride snowboard with old Vision bindings, bought it all for $30. The bindings have no high backs because they’re broken...

    I'm 6' 180 lbs and I wear a size 12 shoe. I'm a beginner, but I'm really enjoying learning how to snowboard and I want to get my own board. I'm considering these two mainly because of price, but I can't find anything online about the brand and I don't want to get stuck with a bad board. I'd be...

    Heya, I'm just starting out snowboarding (2 or 3 times) and I'm super excited about the sport. I've done a ton of research on board types and jargon and board characteristics and what have you, so I decided I didn't want to use rentals anymore and wanted to have my own board. I'm 6"3, around...

    Hi Im about to start my 2nd season snowboarding and I have not really been progressing as quickly as I would like. I’ve been stuck on linking turns and knowing when to initiate the turn.

    Hello! I’m trying to start out snowboarding and I’ve been looking online at measurement guides to see what size to get. However I am on the chunkier side of a woman. I am 195 and 5,4 and wear a size 8.5 women’s shoes so I’m not sure what size to get so I don’t embarrass myself on the hill. I’m...

    So I went snowboarding for the first time and was hooked. I knew I was going to be taking this up as a hobby so I decided to buy a board. I told the girl at the snowboard shop that I was in fact a total newbie (I had only taken a lesson & rode for maybe 2 hours after) I was doing a fair amount...

    Hi All, I've recently taken up snowboarding and I'm hooked so I'm looking to buy my first board. I was originally looking at getting the Burton Process Flying V (159) as I heard its good for turn initiation and a soft playful board. However, I've heard it's not the best as an all mountain...

    Hi, I need some advice on teaching my son. Last year was his first season at age 4. He had instruction on a regular basis. This year we are at a pretty sad location with little in the way of instruction. He started the year zipping down the hill like a scud missile and squatting very low, then...

    Hey all, So I just went to a snowboard shop on Colorado and we got my girlfriend her first snowboard. She is a beginner for sure. She has had one lesson but has shown good progress. She is able to mostly do big wide turns, no carving really. She can brake heel side and toe side pretty well...

    Hey everyone, I am a novice boarder and have only rented prior to this season but am looking to finally get my own board. I didn't want to spend a lot on the first board because I'm not sure what I prefer yet. I've been searching far and wide and the only really good deals I found for my price...

    Whats up! So glad to be part of this community. I have an upcoming trip to Japan (Hakuba) for the first time in 7 years since the last time i've rode, and I have one question. I've seen so many posts about how crappy the rental gear is (anywhere), and i'm debating if I should at least purchase...

    Hey guys, Decided I want to buy my first board this season and I think I've narrowed my list down to a few. Was hoping to get some advice/ reviews on them, and any recommendations. I'd say I'm an intermediate rider, but I really wanna focus on building my riding skills before trying to progress...

    Hey guys so I just started snowboarding recently and have gone about 4 times. I am pretty decent and looking to make a purchase so I no longer have to pay so much on rentals. I checked a few sites to get tips on what a beginner wants to look for in a board and I think I am looking for one with...
