What started out as a necessity for western Oregon shredders in 1999 turned into a worldwide hub for snowboarders everywhere. With our 60-day return policy and over 20 years of snowboarding knowhow, you’ll be stoked when you come to Tactics for your snow gear.
Finding the right snowboarding gear to meet your needs is a gamechanger, but it isn’t always easy to know exactly what you want. Luckily we stock all kinds of snowboards from the top companies and brands in the game so you can shop confidently.
When it comes to snowboards, there are a lot of things to consider. First and foremost, you’ll need to decide what kind of riding you’ll be primarily doing with the board. Some rippers want to hit steep, backcountry lines at full speed and need a board that can turn on a dime. Those riders will want to check out freeride and powder boards. Others like to lap the park and hit jibs, which means they need a board that can flex enough to give them the pop they need. They’ll want to ride freestyle or park boards. The most common type of rider is the weekend warrior who rides a little bit of everything and may not want to pack around multiple boards. The best boards for those riders will be all-mountain boards, boards that do excel in all types of terrain. Rest assured, no matter what type of rider you are, there’s a board at Tactics for you.
Snowboard binding technology has come a long way since we started in ‘99. From Burton’s Step-On system to Union’s Exoframe 4.0 straps, there’s tons of options for the latest tech. Yet at their core, all bindings do the same basic function; attach your foot to your board securely so you can shred without worries. Similarly to snowboards, bindings come in different types that excel in different conditions and riding styles. Pair your bindings with the same type of snowboard as you for optimal performance.
When it comes to new snowboard gear, experts will tell you that it all starts with the boots. If your feet aren’t happy, chances are you won’t be either while on the mountain. Correct sizing is the name of the game.
Once you have the big three components to snowboarding, get kitted with the latest outerwear. From Gore-Tex jackets, pants and bibs, to goggles that feature the newest tech in on-snow optics. Choose between mittens and gloves from Crab Grab and Howl to keep your hands safe. Get the gear you’re looking for and keep your gear as stylish as your riding.
