Buying snowboard online?
And not just a snowboard, but one that is a true pleasure both in terms of performance and to the eye? Shaka is a specialist (in addition to kite surfing of course :)) in the field of snowboarding! We will gladly help you to find the snowboard that will make you happy and enjoy finding a board that suits you!
Our range of snowboards consists of the brands Arbor , Burton and Jones . That does not seem like much, but we are convinced that your board is among them! In addition to all new models, we also have models from previous years. Just like the new models, you will find these online among the range of snowboards . Curious which type of snowboard suits you best and what you should pay attention to?
Do you go snowboarding in the fun park and grab rails, jumps, boxes and the half pipe? Then a freestyle board is for you! The boards are often slightly smaller and thicker. This improves maneuverability and they have no real front or back and can be prepared in both directions. The boards are identical on both sides. Characteristic of freestyle snowboards is that they have a lot of flex so that if you grab a rail you can find your balance. The width of the boards also means that you have a soft landing when you land again after a big jump! Of course the boards also do well on the slopes, but keep these properties in mind when you compare them with a Freerride board!
These boards are ideal if you want to get off the slopes smoothly and with a lot of control. These are also the most common snowboards. Often the boards are slightly longer compared to a freestyle board to keep more control if you go harder. The front and back are usually the same in shape but the front is slightly longer. In addition, the board runs a bit narrower in the middle, making cornering easier and with more control. This is your board if you want anything.
An honest and good advice
The board that suits you best cannot by definition be categorized into one of these categories. A board can be a directional which means that it is made to drive one way. In addition, the boards vary in stiffness, length, thickness, width and shape, which means that you always have to look carefully at what style you have and what you are looking for. Of course the price is also an important factor to take into account.
