Our advice on snowboards is the same for all of the SnowSkool snowboard instructor courses. 

1. Choose an All Mountain Snowboard. 

2. In terms of flex, go for a snowboard with medium-flex and in terms of profile, go for a snowboard with a traditional camber.  

3. Check the manufacturers guidelines for the correct size of snowboard for your weight / height (weight is more of a consideration than height)  

• If you want to use your board predominantly in the park, get a board at the shorter end of the spectrum for your weight; if it’s mostly for powder, get one at the longer end; in the middle if it’s for everything. 

 4. Check the snowboard width …  

• Go standard width if you’re below feet size 10  

• Go for a wide board if you’re feet are sticking over the edge of the board
