When picking a men's snowboard you have to decide where you would like to ride, the stiffness and performance. Of course, choosing the rest of the snowboard gear is fun, but no puzzle piece is as important as the snowboard itself. Your snowboard is what allows you to leave your personal markings and trademarks on the mountains, whether this is via a split-board or going deep back country or even carving out turns on an all-mountain snowboard.
There are many snowboards today, from the crazy directional fishtail snowboards to the more familiar symmetrical twin tips. This is likely to make it difficult for you to choose the best snowboard for you. At Snow Skiers Warehouse we have many great resources and a wide range of snowboards for sale for all kinds of different riders.
For more information on the different shapes, rocker profiles and different technical terms, see the appropriate snowboard selection guide or see the quick run down of different profiles below:
Camber: The original Profile, Camber provides the most contact with the snow, creating precision, agility and speed through it's turns. This profile is ideal for riders with experience and want a board with stability at higher speeds and more aggression.
Flat/Rocker: Designed for playfulness and a forgiving experience, Flat/Rocker is perfect for new riders. With less contact on the snow, this profile helps you get on your feet and down the hill with minimal effort, making progression easier and more fun. Powder boards and Park Boards are an exemption, specifically designed to reduce contact for their respective terrains.
Hybrid: What's a hybrid? Can't decide whether to go camber or Flat/Rocker? Just go for the best of both worlds! Hybrid Profiles give you a mixture of both to provide versatility so you can ride anywhere and everywhere.
