Is it better to buy or hire a snowboard?
There are many contributing factors when it comes to the question of should I rent or buy a snowboard, and there are plenty of pros and cons for both sides.
One of the main things to consider is cost. It is much cheaper to rent a board in the short-term however, if you go snowboarding 5 times over a season, it may end up being better to buy. Having your own snowboard will mean you know what to expect each time you ride, and don’t need to spend time getting used to a different set-up or in the rental queue.
If you would like to rent a board, head over to our rental page to find out more. We also have a great range of demo boards if you are looking to try before you buy.
What are the types of snowboards?
Snowboards come in all shapes, sizes, materials, flexes and constructions. The four main categories are: All Mountain, Freestyle/Park, Freeride and Powder. The type of riding you enjoy best will determine the type of snowboard you buy.
All-Mountain: Perfect if you’re cruising around the resort and hitting the occasional feature. All-Mountain boards are ideal "daily drivers" - ready to handle all different types of snow conditions you'll find in Australia and overseas. Often featuring a longer nose than tail, these boards are versatile enough to carve on groomers, plough through spring slush, and keep you a bit more buoyant on the fresh stuff!
Park/ Freestyle: Jibbing rails and hitting the terrain park jumps? A freestyle/park board will be your weapon of choice. The majority of park boards are "true twin" construction, meaning the board is perfectly symmetrical from nose to tail. This twin shape means the board will have the same feel and response when riding forward and switch. Park boards also aim to minimise weight while maximising maneuverability and pop, complimenting a park rat's more nimble and playful approach to the mountain.
Freeride: Feeling adventurous and leaving the groomed runs and want something for hard carving and steep slopes? A freeride board might be the one for you! Generally featuring a stiffer construction, these boards are intended to handle higher speeds and blast through more untamed snow conditions. When buying a freeride board, riders sometimes - but not always! - increase the size of their board to handle this more technical style of riding.
Powder: Riding after a decent dump of snow or hitting the backcountry, you'll want to get yourself a Powder snowboard. Powder boards boast some of the most unique shapes in the industry! You might see some long fish tails and wide, fat noses all intended to keep you floating and flowing for the deep days. If you’re touring deep in the backcountry you will want to try out a Splitboard.

How long will a snowboard last?
How long your board will last depends heavily on how much use it gets and how well it’s cared for. A board that is only used once or twice a season for a week of snow will last for 10+ years whereas a board that’s used for five or six times a year will last for a shorter period.
However, with good maintenance, regular waxing and not too many big hits (from early season rocks or skiers in the lift line!), you’ll be looking at 100-150 days of riding for your board. Treat your board with care, and it'll treat you kindly back!
How do I know what size of snowboard to get?
There are five key factors that will determine what board size is best for you:
- Shoe size
- Experience level
- Type of board/ what you’re planning to do with your board
The best thing to do is to head to a store or speak to a snowboard expert, like a member of our team at Rhythm Snowsports, who will be able to point you in the right direction. Trying out different sizes of board will also help you to find a good fit.
