Snowboarding is a sport that was born out off snow skiing. The first snowboard was manufactured in Utah during the early 1970s. Although there are others who claim to have invented snowboarding, the end result is it has turned into a sport that has a very large following.
There are casual snowboarders and then there are the extreme snowboarding crowd. Extreme snowboarders perform tricks and styles of riding that while many of us would not ever attempt, we still love to watch them do their thing and pull off some of the most amazing board stunts.
Many times, snowboards are actually styled with decals to reflect the personality of the rider. There are some great looking styles out there and also numerous companies that will create a personalized board for you if your willing to pay for it.
The snowboard is what makes the sport and while there are many different styles and designs, the difference from each is primarily the length, width, flex, sidecut, tail, nose and camber.
With so many different snowboards on the market to choose from, you can usually find better deals for them if you buy online as opposed to walking into a sporting goods store and buying it.
