For a beginner the choice is fairly easy, beginners have less to choose from. Experts are always looking for the next thing that will improve their performance and progression but they (usually) know what they want on a board from experience, which also makes it easier to choose a snowboard. But almost everyone fits in the intermediate/advanced snowboarder category.
So be wise with your snowboard gear choices, the better you get the more influence it has on the fun you have on the mountains and on how much and how fast you will progress. And stay cool, if you are reading this you've already found the best tool to help you on the task. We want to help each and every snowboarder to progress faster, jump higher, laugh more while doing it.
