How do I change the stance bindings on the snowboard


I looked up your snowboard. Unfortunately you can't change the stance. You may need to invest one that you can. Consult with you local shop.

Highback cracked, not broken off yet, anyway fixing it? Or any shop carries parts? Don't want to pay shipping again...


I've repaired mine in on mountain a few times with super glue. Not my first choice but it does work. As for a permeant repair I would talk to K2 about the issue, I've talked with them a few times and they generally are a decent group to deal with.

What size board would a 5' 6" woman need?


hi! i'm around 5' 6" too and a 147/8 is a good size for me to start off with. it depends on your skill level and type of board. i'm assuming from your question you are a beginner so a shorter board would be better suited because they are easier to manouver, initiate turns on and learn all the basics.

as for the type of the board, freestyle boards, generally a twin tip and can be ridden switch, are typically bought smaller because they are easier to do trick on for the reason abover. freeride or all mountain boards, directional and meant to be ridden one way down the slope, are typically longer as they are usually for just riding down the slopes.
there are also combinations of both types but they are more for the intermediate up boarders
also consider the flex of a board. the softer, the easier to learn on [a bit off topic but useful to know if you already didn't]

but in general, a board that your feet won't hang over the egde too far [causing the dredded toe drag] and is between your chin and nose [again, varing from closer to one or the other from the type of board]
hope that helps :D i am also a beginner and a 147 is on the shorter side for me, just being easier to learn on. a 150 would be a good medium once i progress

What should I consider before buying a Snowboard Bag?


For anyone new to winter sports and snowboarding in particular it can get quite expensive getting all the equipment and gear needed to indulge your winter pastime. There is the gear that you wear and the snowboard and related equipment. As the cost of buying this stuff can mount up it is natural to want to buy only the gear that is necessary. The snowboard bag might fit into this category as it does not seem o be an essential piece of equipment. This article will examine if you need a snowboard bag and what to look for if you plan to buy one. First up, if you are buying a new snowboard there is a chance that you can get a deal on a free bag. This might be more appropriate at the end of the snowboard season or even the beginning. Most retailers, both off and online, offer some kind of bonus so don't be shy to negotiate, as you are spending a lot of money on the board. If you live close to the ski resort that you plan to visit over the winter then a snowboard bag is not essential. The chances are that you will be driving to the resort so you can stow your snowboard in the car. Obviously a bag protects it more and you can tie the bag down easier than a board, but it isn't a priority to have a bag. If you think that you will be visiting different resorts or flying to the resort then a bag is essential. Most airlines won't let skis or snowboards onto the flight if they are not adequately packed. A snowboard bag will also protect the board from rough handling and potential scratching or denting of the leading edges. If you decide that you want a bag then you will be struck be the wide variety of choices available. There are bags and covers. Snowboard covers are lightweight and aimed at protecting the board from surface scratches. They are cheaper than bags and ideal for storing a snowboard or when you don't have to transport the board far. Snowboard bags come in all shapes and styles. Many bags are designed to carry more than one snowboard. They also have space for other gear to be stored in the bag. For people that do a lot of flying to resorts some snowboard bags come with wheels so that it is easy to handle in airports. You can choose the snowboard bag which can be worn like a backpack, or you can choose one that has straps with which to carry it about. In any case, you need to ensure that whatever other features your snowboard bag has, it must be water resistant and it should prevent the snowboard from becoming wet. Another important feature to look for in your snowboard bag is that it is durable and built to last and can withstand the elements as well as rough handling, and that straps can easily bear the weight of the snowboard.

Snowboard type or styles


"There are Three Different Types of Snowboards available on the market today: Freestyle, Freeride (All Mountain), and Alpine (Carving) Boards. Each board has a unique construction technique and materials, shape, flex pattern, and size. The type of Snowboard you ride should correspond to your particular style of riding. Freeride or All Mountain Board Freeride or All Mountain Snowboard Of the three Snowboard types, the Freeride Snowboard is the most popular. Accounting for half of all Snowboard sales, this type of board is a good all-mountain, park and Halfpipe Snowboard that is designed to float well in Powder Surface. You can enjoy carving, catching air, and basically all riding aspects with this type of Snowboard. Freeride boards have a directional shape and are meant to be ridden primarily in one direction. Having a directional shape means that the Snowboard's tip is different from its tail. In freeride, the tail is generally more narrow, shorter, and flatter than the tip of the board. With this, the stance on freeride boards is usually offset toward the tail of the board. Still, freeride boards can be ridden Fakie, despite their directional shape. Freeride Snowboards are usually fairly soft and maneuverable enough for beginners, but stiff enough to hold a fast turn in hard snow. This type of Snowboard bridges the gap between Freestyle and Alpine carving. However, it isn't as stable as a carving board and it isn't as agile as a freestyle board. Freestyle Snowboard Freestyle Snowboard A Freestyle Snowboard is wider, more stable, and more forgiving to ride. Also, it is shorter, lighter and (compared with a freeride board) softer in flex, which makes it easier to turn. These characteristics make a freestyle board very responsive to the rider. Consequently, it is the best choice for the beginner. These boards are built mainly for performing tricks in terrain parks and halfpipes (e.g. spins, air, grabs and riding fakie). Still, Freestyle Snowboards have limited edge grip and stability, and are not good for carving turns or cruising fast. Most Freestyle Snowboards are either twin tip boards or directional-twin. Twin tip boards have a centered stance with a tip and tail that are exact copies of each other, making them symmetrical in shape. Both ends of a freestyle Snowboard have a shovel, and freestyle boards with twin tip design makes it easy for beginners to ride both forward and backward (fakie). Directional-twin Snowboards are similar to the regular twin tip Snowboard; only, its tail is stiffer than the nose. Carving, Alpine, or Race Board Carving or Alpine Snowboard Carving Snowboards are narrower than freestyle and freeride boards. Their long, narrow, stiff constructions are configured for higher speeds and cleaner carved turns. With this, carving boards allow quick edge turns, swift, superior edge-holding power on hard snow, and good stability for speed. Also known as alpine boards, these snowboards almost look like an enlarged Ski. They are made in both symmetrical and asymmetrical styles and tend to only have a shovel on the nose. Similar with freeride boards, carving boards are made to ride only in one direction. While carving boards offer a higher level of performance, they are more difficult for the beginning rider to use and are generally reserved for more advanced riders. Alpine Snowboards are mainly preferred by Snowboard racers for a great day of fresh unridden powder. Keep in mind that alpine Snowboards are configured for riding and carving downhill, not for doing tricks. To summarize, freestyle, freeride, and alpine or carving Snowboards are the three basic types of Snowboards. It is easier to maneuver a soft-flexing, twin-tip, gradual side cut Freestyle Snowboard. On the other hand, it is harder to maneuver a stiffer-flex, directional, aggressive sidecut All-Mountain Snowboard with scores of combinations in between. Always remember that the type of Snowboard you ride should correspond to the type of riding that you like to do, and that both Freestyle and Freeride boards are good Snowboard types for beginning snowboarders."
