Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Here goes

I can snowboard a little!

I'm a ski instructor so understand edges. I am looking to purchase a board. I think i need an intermediate board as i'll only board 6 or 7 days a year and noone stays a beginner for ever.

Please recommend intermediate boards to suit above brief descroption, how do i choose / what do look for?

Thank you in anticipation!

1969jma, the best thing you can do is head to a dome and speak to someone at the store about demo'ing some boards. there are a few board tests happening around the country over the next month or so, so it may be worth going to one or more.

also, you need to give details of your height, weight and style of riding. height is the least important of the 3 factors as the board is mostly set up for a certain weight (in order to use the various flexes of the board, i.e. heavier people need stiffer boards); style of riding is whether you're planning on riding in the park, piste or off-piste. the general rule is shorter/flexier board for easier manoeuvrability in the park, longer/stiffer for riding piste; longest for riding powder.

beginner boards are generally flexier and more forgiving; intermediate boards are stiffer, depending on whether you're riding all mountain, park or off-piste.
