In Snowboarding, the style you choose will largely determine how you ride, what Snowboard Equipment or Gear you will be using, and where you will be riding. Each style has its own group of fans, community, and competitions. Once you have passed the beginner stage, you’re bound to explore one of the following Snowboard Riding Styles:

FreeRide

Freeriding is also known as “all-mountain Snowboarding”. Beginners can do this type of style because all you need to do is ride down or up a mountain and explore everything there is out there.

FreeCarve

If you’re a major fan of speed, this type of style is best for you. You can enjoy going into full throttle with this one but it requires full strength and concentration to help you focus more on the race.

Splitboaring

Splitboarding is a relatively new winter sports activity but it is already gaining popularity among avid skiers and snowboarders. This activity offers the best of both worlds.

If you’re not sure which style to choose, just start with Freeriding to become accustomed to the feeling of Snowboarding. However, keep in mind that before you drop your hard-earned money on a new Snowboard, Snowboarding Boots, or Snowboard Bindings setup, you must first know what type of snowboarder you are, or are interested in becoming. Manufacturers carefully design Snowboards for specific Types of Riding. Hence, you don’t want to make the mistake of buying an expensive big mountain board if you’ll be spending all day in the pipe.

FreeStyle

This is very different from Freeriding as this style includes mostly aerial like spins, flips and grabs. Freestyle is also becoming popular. Try this exciting and thrilling style next time you go Snowboarding.

Before you go, check some of the necessary equipment that you will need for you snowboarding trip:
