How To Choose The Right Skiboards

Ski lovers – this article is for you! If you still don’t know how to choose the right skiboard and you will be going skiing soon, keep on reading to find out more about it!

Snowblades or skiboards, whatever you are going to call them, have been a mystery for ski beginners. They aren’t sure what are the main differences between skiboards and how to choose the right one. In this article, we will list the reasons and the parameters you should be checking out for a skiboard next (or first) time you go skiing.


If you are a beginner, you might need a shorter skiboard because longer ones offer more speed which, at first, you may not need to have. You want to start slower and when you get into the habit of skiing with shorter skiboards, start using longer ones for more speed, if you would like so.


Short skiboards can be great for learning on them because they make your skiing tempo slower and give you more control over the overall skiing tempo. But, they have their performance problems because when finishing and wanting to land smooth, you may find them a little bit not suitable for that. Smoother landing goes for longer skiboards so if you have problems with landings, make sure to try out the longer snowblade and see how that goes. If you want to go high in the air, shorter skiboards cannot really offer you that. Longer skiboards are better for people who love to go high in the air but this is something that is advanced in the world of skiing so if you are a beginner, it’s better to stick with shorter skiboard just for the first few times, until you go more advanced.


Laminated wood cores, triaxial fiberglass layers, rubber dampening etc. will ensure you have stability feeling, higher performance and reliability. We have two types of bases: sintered and extruded. The first ones are faster because they hold the wax better which will promote glide, and they are also more expensive compared to extruded bases which are on the cheaper side or less expensive. Extruded bases are really durable but they have that one con of not holding the wax good enough like sintered bases do.  

These would be three parameters to take into consideration while you are thinking about buying a new skiboard or snowblade for your next skiing adventure. Following these tips will make shopping before skiing less annoying and you will surely be pleased with the results – with what you buy and use later on. Skiing equipment lasts for a long period of time so it’s important to choose the right kind of equipment to be able to save money because you won’t need to buy another skiboard after a while if you choose the right one the first time. Remember a little bit something about these three things a good skiboard is characterized by: length, performance and construction and you are (probably) good to go! More winter fashion, here
