When you have mastered the basic technique of snowboarding, learning to carve is a good next step. Carving involves the steel edge of your snowboard cutting through the snow without slowing down. It's fun to practice and it looks pretty too! Especially when you want to board at speed, carving is important. By carving well you go faster and you have more control. To carve well, you need a suitable carving snowboard.

What is a good carving snowboard?

A good carving snowboard should have the following characteristics:

  • The right width
  • Good edge grip
  • The right sidecut radius
  • Camber snowboard
  • Diretional shape

It is important that the carving snowboard is wide enough to carve. When you stick your toes too far over the edge of the snowboard, you hit the ground, causing you to lose grip. So determine whether you need standard width, a mid-wide or a wide snowboard.

Nowadays, most brands have added extra features to the steel edge to provide extra grip. Lib Tech snowboards, for example, have Magne-Traction. This wavy steel edge cuts through the snow like serrated bread.

Advantages of carving snowboards

A carve snowboard offers numerous advantages for riders looking for ultimate precision and control on the slopes. A carve board allows snowboarders to make sharp and smooth turns, giving them the feeling of surfing on snow. The specific design with a narrow center and wider ends provides maximum grip and stability at high speeds, while minimizing lateral forces. The improved edge grip allows riders to dive deeper into turns and follow tighter lines. This results in an increased level of fun and confidence, making the carving snowboard a favorite choice for advanced and expert snowboarders on well groomed slopes.

Wide and short carving snowboards.

The radius of a circle the board can make is called the sidecut radius. The shorter the radius the shorter the snowboard can carve. You see more and more wide and short carving snowboards with a short radius in the collections of most snowboard brands. These snowboards are ideal for carving short turns. Some examples are the Jones Stratos, The Boards Company Delta and the Bataleon Partywave.

A carving snowboard must be stiff and stable.

Carve snowboards must be stable but have a good flex. Stiff but still a good flex is created by adding, for example, carbon in the core of the carver snowboard. An important property of carbon is that it is pliable but quickly shoots back into its original shape.

The type of shape is also important for good carving. Most good carving snowboards therefore have a directional shape. These snowboards have a long nose and a short stiff tail. In addition, the nose is wider, which makes the board want to turn very sharply when you put the board on its side. However, this does not mean that you cannot carve with a directional twin snowboard or a true twin snowboard. Although these boards are less suitable for carving, they also have a steel edge that (with the right technical skills) can make reasonable carving turns.
