Introduction To Snowboard Surfaces

Aug 05,2022

The profile of the snowboard is a design of the bending angle of the snowboard. Different surfaces will have different functions and functions, and how to choose the right snowboard is also very important.

Camber - In the traditional snowboard surface design, the contact point with the snow is generally at the widest part of the two ends of the snowboard, and the middle is slightly raised like a bridge. The characteristics of this type of snowboard are that it provides stable support when turning, and the response is relatively sharp, which is suitable for high-speed sliding and alpine sliding. The disadvantage is that there will be jitter during the sliding process, it is difficult for beginners to control, and it is easy to shovel snow and fall.

Rocker- This type of board is the complete opposite of Camber, with raised sides and depression in the middle that touches the snow. The characteristics of this type of board are that it is very easy to turn, especially when sliding at a slow speed. In addition, because both sides are tilted upwards, snow shoveling and other phenomena hardly occur, which is more suitable for beginners. The disadvantage of this type of version is that it is not particularly stable if the sliding speed is fast.

Flat- This type of plate type increases the contact area between the middle and the snow on the basis of the Rocker and increases a certain degree of stability when sliding at high speed, but it also increases the probability of shoveling snow. It is said that it is more suitable for small partners who learn to ski but are not very skilled.

Hybrid- This type of board is just like its name. There is no complete definition of board shape. Different products or different companies will have their own designs.
