What does the number mean in the base measurement of snowboards?

I'm planning on buy a snowboard for this upcoming season, and snowboards I've seen have base 1000, base 2000, and base 4000.. I noticed that the more expensive boards have the higher numbers, but what exactly do those numbers mean?

It is the type of sintered base used on the board - the higher numbers indicate higher density and pressure used to make the base material - the better base will have more "pores" and will hold the wax better resulting in a faster board

How do I choose the size of the snowboard?


There are 2 factors for snowboard's size: Height and width. Height is measured for beginners from toes up to collarbone or chin and professionals prefer longer snowboards measuring between the chin and the nose.

The correct width for you is if you stand on the snowboard, your feet should stretch almost entirely across the board. You can use this cool calculator to measure the size you need: http://www.frostyrider.com/tips/size-guide.htm

What fit is this type of snowboard pants?


Call me crazy but most Snowboard pants as of yet don't have a separate "fit". That means you won't have any described as"loose", "baggy" "straight leg" etc. What you have instead is that snowboarding pants are made w/ space and flex @ the knees and are wide enough for boots @ the ends. Any adjustment to "fit would have to made in choosing what size you planned on wearing. Hence if you wanted em "baggy" get em bigger etc...

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 length fit


"Length is one of the most important characteristics of a Snowboard. The length of a Snowboard is measured from the tip of the nose to the end of the tail. The length is usually measured in centimeters and often abbreviated to just the last two digits. Board length varies from 100cm to 180cm. To find the appropriate length for you, start by comparing the board length to your height. Although there are no dead set Rules in Selecting Board Length, the following are several guidelines to get you started. When holding the board on its end: * Short board should reach somewhere between your collar bones and chin. Shorter boards are easier to maneuver, great to be trained on, and often preferred by riders who do a lot of Snowboarding Tricks, park and Pipe Riding. * Medium length should come up between your chin and eyebrows. This length is preferred by all around intermediate to advanced riders who ride a variety of terrain, including parks and steeps. * Long boards should go from your forehead to several inches over the top of your head. Long boards are used for high-speed carving, deep powder snow surface, and big mountain terrain. Choosing the suitable board length is not only influenced by your height but also by your weight. Keep in mind that a Snowboard acts like a leaf spring - it has no clue how tall the person standing on it is. However, it does know your weight. Based on your weight or body structure, the following will help you choose the Right Length of Snowboard: * Lighter people should have shorter, more flexible boards. This is because a lighter person on a longer board commonly has a hard time controlling the board and initiating turns. * For an averagely built person, the board length should reach somewhere between the chin and your nose. * Heavier people should have longer, less flexible boards. A short board isn't advisable for heavy riders because the board often have a tendency to ""wash out"" or perform poorly, especially at higher speeds. * Freestyle riding is often done with a shorter board to allow better maneuverability. * Freeriding, deep snow, and racing boards will be longer in size. * For riders who are into Backcountry Snowboarding, go longer for stability. You may also consider your aggressive or timid style. If you're the type of boarder who really attacks the hill, you'll want to increase the length of your Snowboard up to five centimeters from the average size. Then again, if your riding style is naturally slower in character, go down five centimeters. Still, keep in mind that one Snowboard doesn't do it all."

How to fit a snowboard helmet?


"Getting the right fit is the most important factor to consider when buying a Snowboarding Helmet: 1. Measuring Tape. Your helmet size is determined by the circumference of your head. Wrap a measuring tape around your head to get your helmet size. 2. Align the front of the helmet above your eyebrows and hold both straps until the helmet fits well. 3. Make sure there are no unwanted gaps between the helmet lining and your head. The back of the helmet should not touch the back of your neck. 4. The helmet should fit snug and nicely. 5. Try one of your favorite pairs of Snowboard Goggles and make sure they fit properly on your helmet. Please note that the producers of helmets all have different ideas on the shape of a human head. Although the size might be right, the shape of the helmet might be different from the shape of your head."
