tips for renting snow boarding gear
1 Get the basics- if you're going to rent, get the basic snowboard equipment- board, bindings, boots, wrist guards and a helmet.
2 Hiring a board- there are two types you can get- freestyle and freeride. Unless you'll be riding a halfpipe or pulling spinning tricks, you're most likely a "freerider". This means you will need a board with ample sidecut for carving long turns and with enough length to keep you riding on tip of the powder.
3 More board = more fun- if you ride in deep-powder-prone areas, more board (around 174 centimeters) means more fun.
4 Icy Conditions = less board- If you're going to ski in icy conditions, quicker actions will be required and so a shorter boarder would be more appropriate.
5 For beginners- A step-in boot/binding (as apposed to strap-in) is the best choice for beginners, especially for those who are converting from skiing or mountain biking.
6 For off-piste boarding- Use snowboards with slightly longer noses than tails. The longer nose and added width equates to more stability and good flotation in deep powder.
