For snowboarders, who are mostly on kickers and rails, a freestyle snowboard is the first choice. Freestyle snowboards are usually a bit softer than freeride and all-round snowboards, and are also driven in much shorter lengths. The shortness of the freestyle snowboards and their twin tip shape, which allows reversing (switch) with identical nose and tail, influence the handling so that the freestyle snowboards turn faster and maneuver with less effort. For big kickers and halfpipe, harder freestyle snowboards offer more control than soft boards, but also require a higher skill level.
Construction and shape
Another feature of freestyle snowboards is the less pronounced sidecut and the mostly flat tips. The binding is centrally mounted on freestyle snowboards, ideally with equal distances to the nose and tail. For better control and easier switch riding, adjust the angle of the binding so that your feet are pointing outward on the freestyle snowboard, with the degree of posture depending on your individual feeling. As with the other snowboard types, freestyle snowboards also distinguish between camber and rocker profiles. The camber models are equipped with a positive bias for more ollie pop and edge hold, while the freestyle snowboards with rocker profile provide massive revving and flexibility. Special jib snowboards in the field of freestyle snowboards are intended for use on street trails in urban terrain. They are extremely soft and come with rugged, bent edges that prevent them from getting stuck on rails and boxes.
With their short overall length, softness and buoyancy, the freestyle snowboards are basically at home in any terrain, but still prefer a style of driving that is designed for tricks, jumps and slides rather than top speeds and the discovery of previously unknown backcountry spots. On the slopes, freestyle snowboards can be used to learn so-called flat tricks, where the soft flex is used for turns and quick changes of direction. The forgiving feel of the Rocker Profile in particular ensures that you can practice your first spins on the slopes with the freestyle snowboard before venturing out to kicker and boxing. If you already have some experience with spinning and slipping, the individual strengths can be optimally played out with a freestyle snowboard under your feet so that you get a feeling for the different combinations of tricks and jumps and make fast, lasting progress.
