Top 10 Best Snowboarding Brands

The Top Ten

1 Burton

Worst board out there, snapped the first day. After my board snapped I got myself one of those fancy ltd boards and has been treating the slopes very well, everything is so smooth on this board, would recommend this to anybody who is very serious about snowboarding, I'm surprised Shaun white hasn't been sponsored by this company.

Only board I use. I've been snowboarding for 9 years and Burton has been perfect for me since I was a first time boarder now I'm advanced never has split and very good for terrain parks

I have used Burton before, I cannot deny, but it is really good. Better than Head at least. The design is good, the smoothness is unbelievable.

Best bord got 3 of them

They make the best and most durable boards that I have ever touched snow with.
they have some of the most creative riders and there board designs are always on point.

I've tried all types of boards & in my opinion, Ride is the best freestyle board I've ever rode on snow! Unbelievably Great!

I have a ride and it was the best purchase ever

By far best board I've ever had

3 Lib Tech

You gotta be kidding me. The boards that contributed to the greatest snowboard movie of all time only get #7, really? And BURTON gets number 1? I can see, no true snowboarder that KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT has actually been voting. Anyone who KNOWS snowboarding, knows lib tech is TOP OF THE LINE. Magne traction, C2BTX camber/rocker with HP technology. enough said, there is nothing more advanced on the market. I know, I own one, I've shredded The North Face with it. Burton is just the better known brand, they certainly aren't the best. I mean you have to buy burton bindings if you get a burton board because their set ups aren't universal like say... Lib tech? I have a capita snowboard with flow bindings, and a lib tech with ride bindings. If I had made the mistake as a beginner buying a Burton, man, I'd be screwed right now! Seriously people, stop voting on crap you don't know ANYTHING ABOUT. I knew this was gonna happen, I should've stayed away from this one. It just pissed me ...more

Best boards out there hands down, no question, not even a competition. Used to ride a burton board then switched to a lib tech when I got older and better. Would never go back to a burton!

Greatest boards out there, I have gone threw a fair amount of boards and nothing compares to them.

Rode Forum my whole life, bought a Burton Whammy Bar last season. Not unhappy with it but nothing comes close to Forum in the park or streets. They are made to abused and have the best technology in the game if you ask me. Also best bang for your buck. Can get a top of the line deck for around $250

Simply the best. I ride all of the mountain. Hit the pow. Shred the terrain park. And hit the cliffs. Absolutely the best. Super durable. And has insane pop.

Double dog destroyer... enough said

Best, most durable and most advanced boards. Many companies have copied their tech. Its unfortunate they no longer make them. Owned "JP Walker" for 10 years and grabbed a "Kitchen Sink" the last year they made boards and it's the best board I've riden.

5 Salomon

Salomon makes exceptional boards, boots and bindings. Likely most will overlook them because they are seen as a ski company. But, their gear is consistently top-notch.

Best board ever!

Wasn't considering a Salomon but after demo'ing one was amazed by the responsiveness and flexibility. Have riden everything from Liquid to Oxygen and Burtons and this was up there in comfort.

Love my Salomon spark board and my boots are so so so comfy

6 K2

I have some K2 Sonic binding, I love the. The plastic cranks or ratchets or whatever worry me a little, but they're not broken yet. I have a lot if fun with them over all.

I have the k2 world wide weapons series favorite park and hill board I've ever ridden love the flex and how light the board is friken amazing!

Recently started boarding my first was a k2 and I love it

Fantastic boards. Real quality brand.

7 Rome

I've had a Rome for a few winters now, I've been getting back into snowboarding and managed to get one of their garage rockers brand new for $160 from the local skate shops spring clearance. The board is really durable and has no signs of damage after 2 winters of use. Ill definitely be buying another one once this one goes.

I own a rome anthem sds and it's without a doubt the best board I've owned. The design of the board is built to perfection. They are great if your a speed demon but at the same time they are very easy to control. I would recommend any rome board to anyone that snowboards.

All the graphics are sick and I love that they broke off of button to do their own thing. Durability is better than anything out there.

Only boards I'll buy, so reliable and extremely well designed. Not to mention their awesome designs"

9 Never Summer

I bought my first never summer (evo 4.0) last year after previously riding a burton clash a nitro haze and a ride dh. The never summer is hands down the best board I've ever rode. Its stable at high speeds, carves on a dime, kills it in the park, rips in the woods and floats in the powder, holds edge well on icy or choppy surfaces. It has ideal flex, pop, and stiffness, and is damn near indestructible. Long story short I couldn't of asked for more in a deck.

Gotta be Never Summer. Indestructible, they have a model to suit everyone and every style of riding, super versatile, what's more? They're made in the USA. Nice aesthetics too! Come on guys, what else do you need?

Don't know how never summer is number 9, they got trans world snowboarding mag snowboard brand of the year a couple of times

Up until now, the best boards ever. Owned the Funslinger, good flex to be playful but stable enough that you can do eurocarves on it.

10 Gnu

Been riding a second hand gnu board for a while now, hands down the sickest freestyle board I've ridden.

I got one for my birthday last year and it is absolutely my favorite board yet!

Gnu and lib tech have the most quality snowboards.

Bought my first GNU in 1986 and been shreddin' 'em ever since!

The Contenders

11 Capita

11? This should be at least 6, tis the best

Great boards for any kind of riding. Cool graphics too.

Capita is the best company ever

It's Capita... that's all that needs to be said.

I have the magnum from a few years ago and love it. I've been looking to get something less stiff but I still think ill go back to the magnum every chance I get.

The best board I've ever riden. Bin riding for over 22 years and nothing matches the nitro pantera in the powder. I wish I could have rode this when I was younger. Perfect for my size (6'2" 230lbs, bodybuilder type). I love it.

Incredible, the only company that comes close for me is Capita. I have ridden many snowboards, Nitro + Capita are the best by far!

Nitro should easily be in top ten no question

13 Arbor

Just bought my first board, chose an arbor! Took it on the slopes yesterday and had a blast. Really smooth ride, surprisingly good for jobs, cause I know arbor isn't really known for the park. All around great board. It should kick burton out of the number one spot in my opinion.

Arbor is true to quality. Can be higher up on the price end but you truly get what you pay for. Been using my board for the past 3 seasons and it's held up so strong.

Arbor, Capita, Rome, Never Summer. Top 4 in no order/

It's an Arbor... One of a kind.

14 Flow

Best board I have ever ridden. Very affordable as well

I have a board from flow and I like it a lot

Best board and exceptional bindings!

I'm riding the ERA (2015-2016) and I'm really enyoing this board. I rode Nitro, Burton Custom and Burton BMC before this one and the ERA is much more fun. Only minor is it scratches a little easier than my previous boards but maybe that's because I use it more intense;-P

15 Union

The very best. I can ride a pair for 3-4 seasons

Great bindings! Light and flexible

16 Jones

I tested the brand new Ultra Mountain Twin and after less then 20 seconds riding it put a smile on my face like no other board I've ever ridden. The rigidity of the board, the control, the pace, even the graphics: everything suited me perfectly. This is a "proper" snowboard.

Love my jones. Its cheap and has no fancy graphics but bang for the buck its great. Tried it alongside a K2 and a Burton and it was my favorite.

17 Sims

Only ride Sims! Perfect for all types of riding.

18 Rossignol

Pretty much a Lib-Tech snowboard. I hear a good amount are made in the same factories. Mine was. Yeah they aren't known for their snowboards, but I'd put them right beside Salomon in regards to quality.

They may not have the popularity in the world of snowboarding but the quality is there! My, Angus 2012 is one of the fastest and funniest boards I have ever ride!

I have the board and it's really good for me

They quit selling in the US in part because of a fickle, uninformed market in the US that valued graphics far over actual technology. Fantastic craftsmanship in there top of the line Donuts series... These boards ride as good as anything out there and never wear out...
