14 Best Snowboards To Ride This Snow Season

Having a quality snowboard to tackle the slopes is essential for the snow season. But with so many different types of snowboards, it’s hard to find the perfect one for you. When purchasing a snowboard, there are so many things to consider as the perfect snowboard for you relies on the shape, length, width, skill level, and snow condition.

It’s clear snowboarding has come a long way since the mid-sixties when the ‘father of snowboarding’ Sherman Poppen bolted two skis together. And remember, once you’ve got your board sorted, we can help with you with snowboard clothes, boots, and much more…

What to consider:

  • Profile – whether it’s all-mountain, freestyle, freeride, or powder. Different boards cater to specific riding conditions
  • Shape – directional, twin or directional twin 
  • Size – appropriate for your height and weight 
  • Flex – soft boards are ideal for beginners, stiffer one offer more stability and control
  • Terrain – what would work best in powder, groomers, double black diamond 
  • Skill level – choose a board suited to your competency 

TIP: A lot of these brands do not ship to Australia, however, can instead be found on sites including Melbourne Snowboard Centre.
