How to choose snowboard equipment for small snowboarders?

05.11.2021

We asked Roman Blazek How to choose the right snowboard for children and the right length? There is a simple basic rule. The length of the board should be between the mouth and nose, soft in the bend, wide enough with a low weight. For small riders, sequin boards are particularly suitable. What are the most common mistakes and what to avoid when choosing? I would summarize everything in a few points: - choosing a short board - choosing a hard board - a small rider will not push the board and it is difficult to control How important is the choice of bindings and shoes? The first thing is of course compatibility, everything fits: shoes, bindings. For the bindings I would stress the plastic pump, which ensures an optimal and sufficient grip. As for the shoes, it's all about the ergonomics of the child's foot, which the shoes should reflect. Thermal comfort. Last but not least, the ease of putting them on, so that the child can manage everything by himself. Beany products meet all these requirements. Buying snowboard sets? Yes, in addition to the optimal price/performance ratio, it's all about the aforementioned compatibility. The parent doesn't have to deal with the complicated issue of whether the boots and bindings fit. If you buy a set, you are guaranteed a suitable pairing of the products. What's more, you save time and money.

How to choose a suitable snowboard for children and the right length?

There is a simple basic rule. The length of the board should be between the mouth and nose, soft in flex, wide enough with low weight. For small riders, flute boards are particularly suitable.

What are the most common mistakes and what to avoid when choosing?

I would summarize everything in a few points:

- choosing a short board

- choosing a hard board

- a small rider will not push the board through and it is difficult to control

How important is the choice of bindings and boots?

The first thing is of course compatibility, everything fits: boots, bindings. For the bindings I would point out

the plastic pump, which ensures an optimal yet sufficient grip. As for the boots, it's all about the ergonomics of the child's foot, which the boots should reflect. Thermal comfort. Last but not least, the ease of putting them on, so that the child can do everything by himself. Beany products meet all these requirements.

Do you buy snowboard sets?

Yes, besides the optimal price/performance ratio, it's about the already mentioned compatibility. The parent doesn't have to complicate whether the boots and bindings fit. If you buy a set, there is a guarantee of a suitable pairing of the products. And you also save time and money.
