Snowboards are boards where both feet are secured to the same board, which are wider than skis, having the ability to glide on snow. Snowboards widths are between 6 and 12 inches or 15 to 30 centimeters. Snowboards are differentiated from monoskis by the stance of an individual. In monoskiing, an individual stands with feet inline with direction of travel (facing tip of monoski/downhill) (parallel to long axis of board), whereas in snowboarding, users stand with feet transverse (pretty much) to the longitude of the board. Users of such equipment could be known as snowboarders. Commercial snowboards generally require extra equipment such as for example bindings and special boots that assist secure both feet of a snowboarder, who generally rides within an upright position. These kind of boards are commonly employed by persons at ski hills or resorts for leisure, entertainment, and competitive purposes in the experience called snowboarding.
