Gliding and snowboarding

Snowboarding, also called snowboarding, is one of the most popular winter sports. Its unique board allows you to glide on the snow, standing with both feet on the same board unlike skiing.

Freeride boards, on the other hand, are generally longer and stiffer to support all off-piste terrain. Finally, freestyle boards are boards that are recognizable by their directional shape and have smaller and wider boards. This specificity has been studied to be able to access powder tracks.

Boards that have the front shape of the pointed board is called directional shape. As the name implies, this shape is designed to give your board a unique direction. Nightingale Sashimior the board Nidecker's Liberty.

Think flex!

If you don't understand this term, then you should know that it corresponds to the stiffness of your board and it is very important to take this into account in your purchase.

The stiffer the flex, the more suitable it is for freeride use.
