Snowboarding is fun, but choosing a board can be tough. This guide is a means to ease the stress and teach you what you need to know in order to make the right informed choices for your new custom board.

Length vs. Style

It’s important to keep your preferred riding style in mind, when choosing the length of your board. Freestyle-focused riders, for example, will gravitate towards shorter board lengths, to cut down on weight and make it easier to pull off tricks. On the flip side, many freeride-focused riders will want a longer board to provide more edge hold, float and stability in steeper terrain and in a variety of snow conditions.

 Shapes

When it comes to choosing a snowboard, the shape plays an important role, in how it will ride and perform in a variety of different conditions. Understanding your own personal ability levels, and determining what type of riding you prefer, will help you decide whether a twin board that is optimized to ride in either direction or a directional shape that is intending to be ridden forward at all times will best suit you.

Profiles

A snowboards flex and how it will handle and perform, is directly related to the camber profile it features. The most important thing to keep in mind is that each type will relate to different riding styles and snow conditions.  It is important to recognize and keep in mind, the two basic profile classes: camber and reverse camber (rocker)

Terrain and weather conditions

Freeride boards excel when it comes to floating in deep snow and riding ungroomed, steep terrain. A freestyle snowboard is its design symmetry, meaning it will perform equally well whether riding, taking off, or landing in either direction.
