Awesome, thats what the guy working there said as well. He was a bit shorter than me but the same weight, and he said its the same size board he uses..
Its funny because when I got rentals, the people picking out my size for me were telling me weight doesn't matter as much when snowboarding.. and they measured the length by holding it up infront of me, giving me the one that came up to my nose
