It can be a daunting task to select a new snowboard from the bevy of options presented at your local shop. Brand, size, and camber are only the tip of the metaphorical mountain when you are staring at a wall of boards selecting your snow sled of choice. Rather than relying on hours of scouring the internet for specs and info, SNOWBOARDER has done the work for you, providing not only a selection of decks and a hitlist of what you want to know, but also a gear guide on site. Now you can head into your shop equipped with information before you pick up new equipment, because the only thing you should have to spend time surfing is the white wave.

For more 2014 gear, pick up the September issue of SNOWBOARDER on newsstands or in digital format.
