    Required Equipment

    The best point of contact for any new equipment purchase is your coach as they best understand your needs. However, as it is not always possible to touch base with your coach the following is a brief guide to setting yourself up for success through equipment selection.

    Snowboards: Boards are matched to the rider based on the size of the rider (height, weight, width of foot) and the intended purpose for the board. A freeride board is essential for all athletes. Even if Racing is your primary focus you will need a freeride board for most of your training. Race focused riders may opt for a directional board, which is stiffer and with a true camber profile which more accurately reflects the feel of a race board. Race boards should only be considered once you have reached a certain skill level. Prior to this they may be harmful to the development of essential skills. Freestyle focused riders may opt for a twin board, which is softer and with a less aggressive camber profile.

    Bindings: Ensure you have your boots with you when purchasing bindings. The sizing and shape of your bindings will be determined by what works best with your boot. Discuss your intended snowboarding with the sales person as this will give them a clear indication of what binding is right for you. Softer more flexible bindings are more conducive to park riding while a stiffer more responsive binding has advantages in racing.

    Helmet: All athletes are required to be wearing an approved Snowsports helmet during training.
