We fast-track our snowboard education with the Arbor Foundation Rocker Snowboard. This beginner-friendly snowboard makes it easier to master everything from linking turns and stopping with confidence to catching air and sliding boxes in the terrain park. But just because it's labeled as entry-level don't think for a second that Arbor skimped on quality: high-quality materials and construction ensure this board can stand the test of time. The System Rocker keeps the tips off the snow to prevent edge catches and face plants while still maintaining enough stability for high-speed cruising and spinning off jumps. Grip Tech adds extra contact points for increased edge hold which is especially helpful on icy slopes. The softer flex makes turn initiation easy for lightweight riders while a sustainably-harvested Highland core keeps the board lightweight and lively. It's finished off with an easy-to-repair extruded base that keeps you sliding smoothly all season.
