hey what's up guys kevin here from snowboardprocamp today here with chris i guess and in this video we're gonna go through all the different types of snowboards and give you guys some tips and some of our experience so that you guys can find the perfect type of snowboard for you I'm excited let's go let's do it the first type of snowboard is the all-mountain type this one is the know bad day reverence board and all Mountain boards they're just typically designed for riding around the mountain carving getting your turns down sticking to the groomed runs but you can still take these boards off piste and into the park a bit yes so you're gonna see a lot more directional boards in all-mountain as well as they're gonna be a bit stiffer so better on that uneven kind of choppy train that you're gonna find yeah so more the all mountains would be had that positive camber which are really good for riding at high speeds because they keep you really stable great for holding an edge to a carve and for riding with speed through like choppy conditions yeah my first board was a all-mountain board and I used to love it just for going down super city steep stuff going fast pretty much doing everything outside of the park as fast as I could and it was perfect for that yeah my first part was an all-mountain board as well so great for learning my turns the thing that made me get away from an all-mountain board a bit was because I wanted to start getting more into the terrain park and into tricks but if just riding the whole mountain is your thing then the all-mountain is the way to go yeah a really good choice for first board if you don't see yourself as like huge Park rat exactly one of the all Mountain boards that I'm looking forward to this season is trying out the Travis trice pro model by libtech travis rice is the man at riding big mountain and all-mountain so I'm sure he's designed a pretty sick board yeah and for me it's the ride warp egg which is coming back from last year really popular board and a lot of people's favorites including TJ I was one of his favorites from last year yeah oh yeah super pumped to try it out the next type of snowboard is the park board this one is the Salomon hook knife I rode this board most of last season one of my favorite boards the thing that makes park board special is that they're typically twin shaped so they're good for riding in both directions which is really key for when you're learning learning tricks and learning your park skills being able to ride switch or regular yeah so for myself when I first got my park board it's symmetrical nose and tail you set your stance up right in the middle and so turning regular turning switch it should be the same feeling yeah super key for learning tricks another thing with Park boards is that they have usually are a bit softer for doing nose and tail presses so this one has camber between the feet but then the nose and tail a reverse camber so really easy to get into butters and presses and with the softness it's more forgiving on landings from Thompson yeah definitely a lot more forgiving if you kind of have an uneven landing it's gonna allow you to ride out of it a bit easier than a bit shorter all right yeah Park boards are a bit typically a bit shorter just for the maneuverability for it for doing tricks yeah get small tight spin the win that's right and so with Park boards you can get different spectrum of ones that are designed just for Park and ones that are kind of a bit more of a hybrid on the more hardcore side you probably have the libtech skate banana which the whole thing is just like a giant banana shaped rocker and so totally weird feeling out of the park but it's great for in the park and then maybe more as a hybrid you have the Salomon hook knife which although being parks specific is also good as Kevin showed like off off piste and the trees and powder yeah same with Chris's board the Burton process it's a bit good for both so for riding Park or for free riding so it's one of those like hybrid hybrid boards yeah so the next type of board is the powder board this one is the yes for tawny and powder boards are just you know they're very specific type of boards if you're you get one board you don't want to get a powder because it's just so specifically designed for those powder days yes so you're gonna see a lot of boards with big surface area stuff that's just gonna help you float on top of powder yeah so this one's got a massive surface area it's short and flat and just floats really easy and it's also designed to have a bit of a bigger nose so and then this way it kind of like levels you out as you ride on top of the snow you don't have all your weight onto your back foot through the powder and you kind of ride it with like level on both feet and one I tried last year that I liked was the Jones flagship which is a more traditional looking board I've sits right on top of the snow super super easy and it actually has a kind of spoon shape from toe to heel on the base and so it just sits you on top of the snow and just makes it almost impossible to fall over yeah so these shapes boards just make those patter days like they take them from being amazing just and make them even more great yeah there's normally powder days are the most epic anyway yes they just take it from epic to like what I don't know what's beyond that big mind-blowing yeah one of the boards I'm looking forward to trying out this winter is the capita black snowboard of death just a really fun looking powder board yeah I think with the powder boards you get the most unique and crazy designs and what I want to see is the Jones lone wolf which is brand-new for this year the front looks normal and the bath looks back of it looks like a weapon of some kind really really weird-looking board but a lot of unique and different designs in the powder boards yeah lots of exciting shapes coming coming soon oh yeah one thing to mention on all these different types of boards is that if you have large feet like eleven and a half and over then you might want to check out wide boards it's just gonna make it so that your toes and heels aren't dragging in the snow as you ride yeah not all models out there have white bones so you can be a little bit limited but if you do have long feet it's almost a necessity to get the right size the snowboard yeah at a really save your day especially if you're renting a board yeah and for all the ladies out there the women's boards follow all the same rules as the men's do but the difference with the women's boards is that they're just made for people that are lighter and with smaller feet so the shape of the board will be smaller and a bit easier to flex yeah and this year another coming out with about eight or so brand new models in women's boards across the different companies so hopefully they're a lot more choice and availability and a better find what you want yeah and we'll try our best to get some women's reviews out there for you guys yeah sure awesome so hope these tips will help you guys find the perfect type of snowboard for you we'll put links to all these boards down in the in the description so you can check those out and if there's any new boards that you think we should know about or that you've been writing that you like then leave those down below as well thanks for watching guys thanks Chris Oh No thank you Kevin looking dashing in your new shirt oh yeah guys checking out these snowboardprocamp shirts to put a link to those as well we'll

    Capital space metals are great if you are a taller lady with bigger feet. Still have the light weight associated with women's boards with easy turning but actually comed in sizes that work if you are taller than 5'5

    Powder boards are so fuckin beautiful i love them they are the best. It is unfortunate that such a masterpeice cwn only be used for more softer Terrain rather than packed or slush but it never hurts to add it to a collection.

    Capita – outer space living. Best board ive been on. Im beginner-intermediate level rider and breaking into the park now. Its all mountain, twin, camber/reverse camber design really keeps you comfortable wherever you ride.

    I'm a relatively new snowboarder, been a few times but I'm starting to get good. I was looking into buying a board and I was considering buying a freestyle/park board in order to somewhat future proof myself as I know I'll be hitting park soon. Are these boards stable enough for me to ride now? Thanks

    I ride never summer ripsaw and Travis Rice pro hp. Honestly I like the ripsaw better. The responsiveness is insane on that board. For powder days I think the Travis Rice board floats better. I just prefer a very aggressive board myself

    My first board is a Slash Happy Place hybrid, been really good to ride including on the park. It's tricky to get to ride different types of boards in the UK though. The asymmetric boards sound interesting for our on the mountain. What do you think?

    great video, as always, thanks!
    please give advice: I'm 6.5 feet tall 220 pounds weight. I'm riding backcountry if there are a good powder and curving on tracks if not. currently I have K2 RayGun 164 wide. and I it doesn't hold me well in good powder, the same with carving: it feels bulky and doesn't hold edge. which snowboard should I take for this season? I'm confused about the size and model. there a not so big choice of 167+ size boards… do I need 169? please give me some advice.
