My kids (ages 8-11) decided they want to try snowboarding this year, so I will be enrolling them into an 8-week program at MSLM.
Since they have never snowboarded before, and may decide they don't like it after all (and go back to skiing next season), I wouldn't want to spend a lot at this point and would probably buy used.
With that in mind, can you please give me general recommendations for selecting equipment (boards, boots, etc.)?
My main objective is for them to have fun (eating snow is not), get some basic skills and, if they like it decide to continue, I can get them other stuff next year (probably will have to, they grow...)
- Board size, based on rider height/weight/ability?
- Board shape?
And in particular, what to avoid?
