    Which one of these is best for powder?

  2. brian on November 24, 2022 at 11:38 am

    I just bought the new Nidecker Escape. Intermediate rider but go all mountain exploring with my friends who are more advanced but I’ve only been riding for 3 yrs so hopefully it was a good choice

  3. Erick Steffen on November 24, 2022 at 11:40 am

    What ski resort is this?

  4. Kem SV on November 24, 2022 at 11:40 am

    I just got the Capita Pathfinder few days ago before this video. This will be my first board ever and its my 2nd time going to the snow. This video helped me reassure that i chose the right board for me.

  5. Serge Mann on November 24, 2022 at 11:40 am

    So pretty much jib boards. It makes sense that those are good for beginners.

  6. Rob Gams on November 24, 2022 at 11:44 am

    Useful info as always man. 👍

  7. Emilian Popov on November 24, 2022 at 11:45 am

    I’d like to add the Skate Banana by LibTech to this list – it’s an awesome beginner-friendly board imo.

  8. Chuck Van on November 24, 2022 at 11:45 am

    Stoked that the Basic is still on this list. Its what I started on and always recommend for beginners as it is quite versatile.

  9. duragezic on November 24, 2022 at 11:47 am

    This is perfect for me. I have had a board on backorder for months, and recently started to second guess the size and/or board. I was considering the Bataleon Blow. And then in a board shop, an employee recommended the Nitro Cheap Thrills and the Pathfinder Rev. Seems we were on the right page!

  10. Till Toaster on November 24, 2022 at 11:48 am

    What u think about the LibTech Skate Banana? I‘ve heard it’s also a Great choice for beginners/intermediate.

  11. thomasdgardner on November 24, 2022 at 11:52 am

    I’m seeing conflicting information about beginner boards. Your video is in the camber is best camp, seen other places that say rocker is best. Have had people tell me to go with a flat board. I like the idea of the camber but why the totally different opinions? Is it a regional thing? I’m on the east coast, mid Atlantic to be more precise. Is there a type of beginner board that is better suited to where I am learning?

  12. Peydon Ryan on November 24, 2022 at 11:56 am

    I would love to see a review on the 22 ride zero it would make my life better😂

  13. Brian Sullivan on November 24, 2022 at 11:57 am

    I recently got back into snowboarding after like 15-20 years, and went with the Yes Basic. I am so glad I did. I try to go fast and "try" to carve and was worried it would feel too sketchy through turns with speed. Now I realize it’ll hold through some pretty demanding stuff (for me). The Basic is definitely a board that I can grow into and progress a lot with before graduating to a Yes Standard or Basic Uninc.
    And remember, the Basic is anything but!

  14. Cedric Legaspi on November 24, 2022 at 11:58 am

    Does anyone know where is this resort at? Thank you in advance

  15. Nicolas Morel on November 24, 2022 at 12:00 pm

    Is your sweater waterproof at all?

  16. NemDawg63 on November 24, 2022 at 12:01 pm

    How would you say the nitro slash is for a beginner? I’m a surfer who wants something a little surfy because I’d imagine I like how it feels

  17. traets on November 24, 2022 at 12:02 pm

    Shoot. I just got the fun kink. Shoudlve gotten the blow 😭

  18. RogueSGT on November 24, 2022 at 12:05 pm

    Would you recommend the Blow for east coast PA riding?

  19. Always Outside on November 24, 2022 at 12:06 pm

    I will be choosing one of these as an intermediate rider but love the content

  20. Chase Olson on November 24, 2022 at 12:06 pm

    Love the no pressure hoodie logic is the best love the vid

  21. ellstacker adventures on November 24, 2022 at 12:07 pm

    I want a flexible board

  22. Didio Nakamura on November 24, 2022 at 12:08 pm

    Poderia liberar as legendas em Português do Brasil.
    Tô loko pra entender as diferenças dos modelos. Mas meu inglês é péssimo.

  23. nick woodward on November 24, 2022 at 12:09 pm

    @0.35 rocker?

  24. marty maness on November 24, 2022 at 12:09 pm

    These beginner boards are the most fun to ride.

  25. Charles on November 24, 2022 at 12:09 pm

    People over think it. Just buy a board and ride until you get good at it.

  26. Ben Weigelt on November 24, 2022 at 12:10 pm

    Hey TJ nice vid! I was wondering what you thought of the burton free thinker wondering how it compares to the huck knife pro?

  27. Keiton Guan on November 24, 2022 at 12:10 pm

    you are doing god work, TJ!!

  28. Thorvald on November 24, 2022 at 12:12 pm

    Always enjoy your channel, keep up the grind TJ!

  29. Lisa Groves on November 24, 2022 at 12:16 pm

    I started out on a Burton at age 7.

  30. Bruno Moura on November 24, 2022 at 12:17 pm

    Hi TJ! Your reviews are awesome bro! I bought a GNU carbon credit two years ago following your reviews. O learned the basis on the rocker board. I want to get a camber board which allows me to progress faster and goes well in some off piste and locked in high speed to give me more confidence. Any videos or models you can recommend me? Cheers man! Keep rocking!

  31. Peter Saunders on November 24, 2022 at 12:18 pm

    Hey TJ , would you go back to a beginner style board if you haven’t been boarding for a few seasons ( due to injury and Covid-19’) and if you want to just mellow back a bit. I currently have a Salomon Assassin and a Arbor Westmark Rocker ( which I’ve used both when we went to Whistler).

  32. Le Vain Casque on November 24, 2022 at 12:19 pm

    Hey TJ, you should highlight some boards from the old school brands that are still kicking.
    Like Sims, Santa Cruz, and Kemper.
    Especially now that JP walker has a pro model with Santa Cruz now.
    These brands did a lot for the sport, and made the freestyle scene what it is today. It just sucks that they’re constantly facing financial ruin, or being bought out. Even thought they have great decks.

  33. Dope New Name on November 24, 2022 at 12:19 pm

    My first board is the Yes Basic and I’m very happy with it, I can ride it anywhere on the mountain

  34. Bad_Riders on November 24, 2022 at 12:20 pm

    Always appreciate tj’s work in these vids. He helped me understand board tech and his recommendations always come through 🙂

  35. Markus Kloh on November 24, 2022 at 12:20 pm

    Hey, what do you think about the Ride Twinpig for Beginners?

  36. xD - vor 23 Jahren on November 24, 2022 at 12:20 pm


  37. Sam Mcdonnell on November 24, 2022 at 12:21 pm

    Wow no skate banana? Lol

  38. Smitaye on November 24, 2022 at 12:23 pm

    Who else watching this to justify their purchase on one of these boards

  39. Thomas Fiorelli on November 24, 2022 at 12:24 pm

    Hi everyone, I need your help to choose my first snowboard. I am 178cm (5’10’) and 73kg (160 pounds) with pretty big feet (12US boot), beginner to intermediate rider looking for a board i can learn and progress with. I’d want an all mountain/freestyle board that can be stable at higher speed (nothing crazy) and I can carve with but that is still playful and forgiving (presses etc). I am stuck in the decision between the Yes basic 156 wide and the GNU money 154 wide. Is the YES 156W too big for me? Or is the GNU 154W not as stable as the YES? The basic got cam/rock/cam so it seem more stable than the gnu that has a rock out camber. thank you in advance, I really need your help 🙂

  40. Ross Harmon on November 24, 2022 at 12:28 pm

    Yes exactly what I asked for thank you !!! ❤️

  41. Colin O’Sullivan on November 24, 2022 at 12:32 pm

    Yes! been waiting for this

  42. YoMyKnee on November 24, 2022 at 12:32 pm

    So between a rocker and a camber, I had such a hard time learning on a camber when turning but rocker was easy peasy. Any explanation ?

  43. garrettn on November 24, 2022 at 12:32 pm

    I know someone probably won’t know or see this but is the 1998 K2 Electra true twin a good begginer board??

  44. 루브레브 on November 24, 2022 at 12:34 pm

    great video! thanks.. gangplank looks nice

  45. Leyenda 1127 on November 24, 2022 at 12:35 pm

    I’m about 5’10 140 what size should I get ?

  46. Nikita Ratkevich on November 24, 2022 at 12:35 pm

    TJ, I have 12 years of experience in snowboarding and I will buy one of these boards for buttering.
    Please share the differences between Capita Pathfinder Rev and Nitro cheap thrill. Which will be better for buttering?

  47. Live Humane on November 24, 2022 at 12:35 pm

    Did anyone notice that the Bataleon blow is now rated as 4/10 flex? Previous years it was rated as 2/10. I wonder if this is a mistake or if they really stiffened it up.. they did get rid of their global warmer this year, which was rated 3.5/10…… can anyone clear this up?? Thanks in advance!

  48. TKRP Clips on November 24, 2022 at 12:36 pm

    Aye some boards for me, lets go!!! Love the videos man!!

  49. Mike Michaels on November 24, 2022 at 12:37 pm

    Just starting out, I’m 5’11 x 210 x 12" boot, will the Pathfinder 157W be big enough for me? Any info would be appreciated.
