Snowboards are one of the most important equipments for snowboarding. Choosing a snowboard is crucial for a beginner as well as an experienced professional. Snowboarding equipment has seen a lot of technological improvements in the past decade. Snowboards and monoskis are differentiated by the stance of the user. In snowboards, the rider stands with the feet transverse to the length of the board, whereas in a monoskiing board, the rider stands with the foot in line with the direction in which the board is moving.

The material used for construction of snowboards is mostly hardwood, which is compressed between layers of fiberglass. There are also boards that are made from costly materials such as Aluminum, Kevlar, and Carbon fiber, which increase the strength and also the cost of the boards.

There are different types of snowboards, which differentiate with different styles, length, width, shape, size, etc. Freestyle boards are shorter with a twin tip shape. The flex used is soft to moderate and incorporates a huge side cut for rapid turning. Part style boards are short, flexible and medium in length. They have a twin tip shape along with a twin flex. A freeride board is longer with a twin tip. It is made from flex that ranges between stiff to moderate. It is used in backcountry riding and park terrains. All mountain boards are one of the most common boards and are a cross between freestyle and freeride boards. The width of a snowboard needs to be almost as the length of the foot of the snowboarder.
