What Level Of Flex Should You Choose?
Regardless of skill level, soft-medium flex boards are usually best for park snowboarding. Below is a reference for the flex you should choose based on your snowboarding experience.
Beginners should use soft flexing boards for buttering, flat-land tricks, spins, and overall easy stuff. Soft Flex is very forgiving for beginners because the board can give more and bend easier. We would caution against using a soft flex board when there are icy/bumpy conditions & when you are riding at higher speeds.
Medium flex is good for experienced snowboarders who want to be able to ride at high speeds or freestyle ride in the park. The boards need to be stiff enough for speed riding because a bit too much flex could sabotage an advanced rider and cause a wipeout.
These boards are not recommended for beginners because they require years of practice and riding. A stiff board requires strong snowboard fundamentals and good technique. An advantage of using stiff snowboards is that they are very stable at high speeds and icy snow conditions.
