The Snowboard for Beginners

The Snowboard for Beginners

Yegor Ganshyn, Writer


When you learn how to ski or snowboard you start to buy your own things instead of renting and if you are looking for a snowboard, then buying the Salomon Sleepwalker is most likely the best choice for many reasons. Salomon Sleepwalker is a flexible board that lets beginners or experienced riders learn new tricks, it is considered one of the most forgiving snowboards because of how easy it is to use.


A lot of times when a snowboard is really flexible it is harder to control at faster speeds but with the Sleepwalker having side cuts on the sides of the board lets the rider have more control which eliminates the lack of control due to flexibility. One of the reasons why I found that the snowboard is good is because of how inexpensive for beginners but at the same time it is built like a snowboard that is ready for competitions and hard tricks.


As I was using the snowboard this winter I noticed that when you go off a big jump it is harder to gain control after you land but with a little bit of practice you will be able to land any jumps. One of the features that I really like about the snowboard is that it is 100% symmetrical which lets me do more tricks like flat spins and nose/tail presses outside of the terrain park which is a hill that is built just for tricks. 


From the whole time that I have used the Salomon Sleepwalker I have not noticed many downsides to it, the board is not built for a specific category but instead it is built for anything. It will be hard to do some tricks but with practice anything becomes easy. Even if you don’t have the correct snowboard for a trick you will still be able to do it, but it will take practice.
