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.
