SNOWBOARD TYPE

ALL MOUNTAIN
All-mountain models are the daily drivers of snowboards. And because they’re for riders who ride the whole mountain in every condition, they’re typically designed to be capable on and off the trail—on groomers, in powder, and helping you adapt in variable conditions. But they’re not experts in any one terrain and there isn’t just one type of all- mountain board. The key is determining what type of riding you do most and then choose your go-to model.
FREESTYLE
Often shorter in length and featuring a true twin shape, freestyle boards are built for riders who spend most of their time in the terrain park and the halfpipe. (They’re also well-suited to urban riding where rails and jib features make freestyle riding a dream.) To keep these boards poppy and playful, many models feature traditional camber or flat camber profiles (but all-mountain freestyle may feature some form of hybrid camber profile to make the board more versatile).

BOARD SHAPE

DIRECTIONAL
As the name indicates, directional boards are designed to be ridden in primarily one direction. The directional shapes are great for freeride and all-mountain models and often feature binding mounts that are set farther back (closer to the tail) with stiffer construction to make them more stable at speed.
TWIN
Twin shapes (sometimes called true twins) are symmetrical tip to tail, including their flex pattern. The twin shape allows for bindings to be mounted more centrally too, making twin models well suited to freestyle riding where spinning and riding switch is most common.

CAMBER & ROCKER PROFILE

FLAT
Boards with flat profiles are basically entirely flat between the tip and tail contact points. These models are typically more forgiving than those with traditional camber, but offer a bit more edge hold and precision that more rockered models.
HYBRID ROCKER
The most common form of hybrid rocker is probably rocker / camber / rocker (traditional camber underfoot with rocker in the tip and tail), but the hybrid variations are seemingly endless and change depending on the brand. (And each brand seems to have it’s own name for their hybrid profile like the Ultra Butter Profile Blend 9000 and XX Schralvey McOwn-the-Mountain Profile.) The takeaway is that hybrid profiles exist to make a single board model more versatile in varied conditions. We recommend talking to our expert staff to better understand hybrid board profiles.

FLEX | SIDECUT & TURN RADIUS

FLEX
The flex patterns on a board have a big impact on how it rides. Softer flexing boards are more playful and maneuverable and forgiving, so you can butter and slide around without catching edges as much as you might on a stiffer board. They are, however, typically less stable at higher speeds.

Boards with stiffer flex patterns typically feel more stable at speed and pop better off kickers, but are less forgiving when you catch an edge or don’t quite stomp your landings just right.

Most board brands tell you the approximate flex pattern of each board in their lineup and where each board falls on the soft-to-stiff spectrum.
SIDECUT & TURN RADIUS
A snowboard’s sidecut is determined by the tip, waist, and tail widths. Often, the narrower a board is at the waist compared to its tip and tail widths, the deeper its sidecut is (and, therefore, the shorter its turning radius will be). Boards with shorter turn radii are better for quick turns, while boards with longer turn radii are better for more drawn-out lines and are more stable at higher speeds.

ADULT SIZE CHART

BOARD SIZING

INTRO
Affecting things like turning and stability at speed, your board’s length is a significant factor in how you ride (and, possibly, how much much you have). But here’s no crystal ball telling you exactly what length board you should ride. There are, however, a few guidelines. A general rule when figuring out the right snowboard length is to find something between the height of your chin and your nose. But factors like boot size and rider weight will affect this.

Advanced riders, and those who weigh more than others of the same height, should look for a board that is closer to their nose. (And expert riders may choose something even longer.) Less advanced riders, on the other hand, and those who weight less than others of the same height will generally be better off with a board closer to the height of their chin. The type of board you choose and what terrain you’ll be riding matter too. Board models that are more freestyle-oriented are generally shorter and better for quick turns, for example, while boards designed for longer turns on bigger lines generally longer.

INTRO TO SNOWBOARDING

Muskegon, Michigan, isn’t famous for much, but let’s raise a glass to those first few folks who took water skis to the mountain, turned sideways on them, and went on to change snow sports forever. (The first actual patent for a snowboard didn’t come until years later, but the spirit was alive, even in the 60s.)

Old water skis aren’t the preferred construction for today’s riders and there are so many board options in the market now. Maybe even too many. (And that’s why you’re here.) We created this guide to give you an idea of what type of board will best suit your ability and style, but we recommend coming into our shop and speaking with our expert staff for an even better idea of what you need.
