Best Kids Snowboards – Winter 2018

While adult snowboards are divided into specialized categories (all-mountain, freestyle, powder) allowing for much more variety and choice, kids snowboards are generally fairly standard and simple in design. Nonetheless, knowing the difference between a good or bad quality board for your child can be challenging. In order to help make things a tad easier, we have compiled our selections of the best kids’ snowboards based on value, brand, and technology. We would confidently recommend these boards to any of our own campers. It’s time to say goodbye to dated hand-me-downs and hello to shredding in style with these child-sized versions of the latest and greatest in snowboarding technology!
