Snowboards are designed for different types of terrain as well as all kinds of riding styles. They will loosely fall into the categories of All Mountain, Freestyle, and All Mountain Freestyle.
All-Mountain boards are designed for general cruising and carving anywhere on the mountain.
All-Mountain Freestyle boards offer the best of both worlds for the rider that truly wants to go everywhere on the mountain, seeking both the pop and playfulness needed for freestyle terrain, as well as the power and response for carving at higher speeds.
Freestyle boards are designed for doing tricks usually in a terrain park with features like rails, boxes and jumps.
