What types of snowboarding are there?

Updated on February 24, 2011

The winter activitiy that I will talk to you about today is snowboarding. I enjoy snowboarding. It was first attempted in 1960. There are different types of snowboarding, and different boards to accomplish different things. The types of boarding I am going to talk about are mountain (carving), terrain, and all-mountain. Some people also ride half pipe (shaun white) but there are not special half pipe boards.

This is a picture of snowboarding down a mountain. It takes a lot of carving skill so you can maintain control while going down steep slopes. This picture was taken on Mammoth Mountain, USA.

This is a picture of a carving or race board. As you can see it is asymmetrical. They are only supposed to be ridden one way. These boards are generally the longest for the rider's height.

This is terrain park riding and it is the bomb. A terrain park usually consists of jumps, rails, boxes, and more! There are many types of tricks you can do on jumps, rails, and boxes.

These are park boards. They are symmetrical so that you can land "fakie" or with your non-dominant foot forward. When you buy a park board you generally have it a little bit shorter than an all-mountain.

This is an all-mountain board. They are the most popular board. They are a good all-around board and can be used for a bit of park and a bit of carving. They are good for beginners and novices.
