How to choose snowboard equipment for small snowboarders?


Snowboarding for kids is about freedom and the joy of movement. Going down slopes and various obstacles is great fun and definitely belongs in winter. But how do you go about choosing the right snowboarding equipment for little riders? When it comes to sports equipment, kids have their own needs, they want functional shapes, colourful modern designs and great fun while riding. Likewise, parents demand safety, comfort, practicality and ease of use above all else for their little athletes. We will advise you on how to do it.

We asked Roman Blažek, manufacturer of children's sports equipment, about the basic steps in choosing snowboard equipment.

How to choose the right children's snowboard and the right length?
There is a simple basic rule. The length of the board should be between the mouth and the nose, soft in the bend, wide enough with low weight. Flat boards are especially suitable for small riders.

What are the most common mistakes and what to avoid when choosing?
I would summarize everything in a few points:
- Choosing a board that is too short.
- Choosing a hard board
- A small rider will not push the board and will find it hard to control.

How important is the choice of bindings and boots?
First and foremost, of course, compatibility, everything fits: boots, bindings. For the bindings I would emphasize
A pump that is large enough and easy to use, which guarantees an optimal and 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.

Buying snowboard sets?
Yes, besides 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. In addition, you save time and money.
