How to Buy a Snowboard – Eddie’s Wall Episode 2

Snowboard technology is a crazy beast. For example, early snowboards didn’t even have edges, and now there are all sorts of varieties out there designed to help you lay a mean carve. Board shapes have also very recently taken a page from the history book, dreaming up all sorts of crazy nose and tail variations, not to mention asymmetrical styles as well. How are you supposed to sift through the crazy tech jargon and select the board that’s right for you? Easy. Let Eddie Wall fill you in and explain how to buy a snowboard. In this week’s episode, he catches up with pro riders Austin Smith, Keegan Valaika, Scott E. Wittlake, and snowboard legend Todd Richards to get down to the dirty details on how to buy the perfect snowboard. If you need more advice, we’ve also just released our brand new 2016 Gear Guide, which will be dropping into your mailbox and onto newsstands right now!
