Snowboarding is a sport that is based on speed. snowboards use specialized boards to maneuver on a smooth and flat surface, and sometimes the boards are equipped with rails to add stability to the motion. Snowboarding is actually a combination of two sports; freestyle, or freestyle, and freeriding, or free-ride style. Freeride is more challenging because it requires better balance and flexibility while freeriding. Snowboarders can do freeride and freestyle at the same time, but they generally prefer to freeride because they can enjoy a smoother and slower pace and do not need to rely on other skills such as hand-eye coordination to win competitions.
