Hi, I am looking for a splitboard too, but unfortunately live in Finland, where they are mostly an unknown treasure, something that must be ordered from abroad it seems, and therefore i haven't gotten to really try any. So, can anyone help me?
I am 5''3 tall (162cm) and weight about 137 lbs (62kg), my old slopeboards are stiff 147cm long from time before cambre and rockers etc... I've had a K2 Saturn from 2001 (?) and after that a Rossignol Diva from 2006/7 (which i didn't first want to buy cause the girls boards seemed all too flexy), which both I've been very comfortable with both on and off the slopes. Now I want to be able to keep up with my skier friends outside the lift area to get the better snow, and splitboard sounds like the perfect solution.
I was looking at the Voile Mojo RX /Light Rail -package to make it easy, as this is my first split board, and to be honest, living in a city in a flat area, i only get about 15 days of skiing per a season, so I wouldn't want to spend a fortune on the equipment.
Just the length is my problem: 153 cm sounds kind of a sissy, as I've heard you can go longer with a splitboard, and there's just 6cm difference to my old one. Then 161 cm sounds kinda long with the board being my height. But as i like it long and stiff (hehe.. no pun intended..
) does it sound like i could still do it? Or should I check on the other makes, to find some length there in between?
