Daily Drivers vs. Quiver Boards
Daily drivers are the boards you can bring with you to do pretty much anything on the mountain.. They are your go-to boards when you’re curious about both the mountain and park, and don’t want to be held back by your board choice. These are the best boards for all-mountain riders.
Quiver boards are more specific to different conditions and style preferences. Here’s the type of quiver board you want depending on the snow conditions or your riding style preference:
Freeride: Directional and stiff flex
All-Mountain: Twin or slightly set back with a mid flex
Surf Style and Powder: Shaped for one-directional snowboarding
Freestyle: Twin and soft flex
And that’s how you choose the perfect snowboard for your riding style and body—making the investment in the right board for you can make the difference between those high-on-life rides, and the ones where you can’t tell why you’re so drained at the end of the run.
Here’s a quick reminder of everything to look at when buying a snowboard:
• The length and width specific to your body
• How to get your board properly set up
