CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIZE
The table in the specifications section provides a general size recommendation for packed snow conditions. As long you fall within this range, your snowboard will suit you just fine.
However, you may want your board to be on the longer or shorter side of the spectrum depending on your personal preference and riding style. Those that will mainly be riding freestyle (park) may want their snowboard a few centimeters shorter than usual. This helps increase flex and maneuverability. Those planning to ride in heavy powder my want to increase their board size by a few centimeters to help it float better.

Blank snowboards use sandwich construction, unlike the cheaper cap construction used in the manufacturing of many other snowboards, but for a similar price. Blank combines the finest materials including a 100% poplar wood core, triaxial fiberglass, UV protected TPU topsheet, rubber foil, ABS sidewalls, extruded base and a Rockwell stainless steel edge. In a retail store, a snowboard made with the same materials would cost around twice the price of a Blank snowboard. That's because you're also paying for retail markup, a graphic you may not even like, and someone else's sponsorship. Blank snowboards were created to give everyone a chance to buy a high-quality snowboard at an affordable price.
The park board features a reverse, banana or rocker camber - however you want to call it.
Reverse camber boards curve upwards towards the nose and tail in a kind of a banana shape. The upturned tip and tail gives a more loose, playful ride and gives extra float in powder. On the downside, it isn’t as fast and doesn’t hold an edge like a cambered board. Jibbers and rail riders will often opt for a rockered board, as they’re more maneuverable and less likely to catch an edge. These boards are also great for beginners - since catching an edge occurs often as someone learns.
Blank snowboards are compatible with standard 4-hole pattern snowboard bindings. We use the most common pattern which is a 2x4 (see image below), so most bindings will fit our boards. Binding base plates can also easily be swapped to fit almost any board.
