For any Snowboarding (or Skiing) enthusiast, this mag is a must buy. I first purchased a copy of this magazine in an airport whilst waiting to fly to France for a snowboarding holiday back in February. I'm a subscriber of onboard magazine and had a copy on hand to read, though this certainly stood out in the dispaly rack and I needed to read something whilst waiting 2 hours! I was pleasantly suprised. For a UK magazine, I was expecting some rather lame reviews about dry ski slopes, the indoor snowdomes and other various 'not up to it' information, thuogh this magazine is crammed with product reviews, interviews with pro boarders, boarding products, clothing, special offers, discounts and websites to visit. It also has reviews on resorts, 'how to's' on tips and tricks and various other hidden goodies. I've now subsribed to the maazgine, it's a little cheaper than the onboard mag and I feel better about myself for subscribing to a UK magazine, supporting our boys. Next time your in WHSmith, pick up a copy and have a read. If you currently subscribe to any other boarding mag, this may be of interest!
This mag is a decent buy for anyone interested in boarding, it includes articles catering from beginner up to all mountain freestyle god. You might think that a magazine devoted entirely to snowboarding would have precious little left to write about in the UK. However, Snowboard UK have gotten round the UK's lack of snow with a comprehensive dryslope and artificial surface section. They have also now begun o produce themed issues, recent themes including New Zealand, Back Country riding and the vital snowboard bible. They also run regular articles and letters pages alongside features, such as their backcountry safety series, which I genuinely believe will save my life one day. As with most magazines, a few too many pages have had to be sacrificed to advertising, but that's the price you pay when your in the real world. Snowboard UK also offers monthly competitions, giving hard up boarders the opportunity to win them selves everything from boots and avalanche transceivers to whole seasons in soem of the worlds finest resorts. In short, whether you are a powder junky or just want to test the waters before you learn to ride, this magazine is a quality buy.
