Types of Snowboards:
Traditional Camber Snowboards: When snowboards were first introduced they had an inverted U-shape so that if you were to late it flat on the ground it would look like a subtle upside-down U – the midsection of the board is slightly lifted off the ground. This became known as the traditional cambered snowboard which is a very responsive board with edge precision, and snap.
Rockered Snowboards: Take a traditional camber snowboard and reverse it. When you lay a rockered Snowboard flat on the ground you will notice that the tips of the snowboard are lifted up while the mid-section is touching the ground. This rockered design gives you more float on the powder as well as some forgiveness and playfulness.
Flat Camber Snowboards: A flat camber snowboard is a flat snowboard with the exception of the tips which are just slightly lifted. These womens snowboards are built for those interested in speed.
Hybrid Snowboards: Hybrid snowboards combine the various rockers to bring you a versatile snowboard. If you know what you’re looking for and have a way that you like to ride then Hybrid Womens Snowboards combine the best characteristics so you have your best ride.
