Another board length thread
Hey all. I keep getting different answers about this, so I figured I'd ask here.
I'm pretty new to snowboarding, and am slowing finding my way into the community more and more. I've been wanting to join a snowboarding forum for a while now. I figure now is as good a time as any, since I have a question. I am buying a new board.
My buddy is moving out of town, and is selling his board for very VERY cheap, but I get the feeling it's too big for me... As in WAAAAY too big.
I'm a pretty small guy, 5'10'' and about 140-145 pounds.
The board in question is a freestyle, 160cm long board. My gut tells me it's far too big, but a few other I know said it should be alright (I don't exactly 100% trust their judgement though, as they themselves admit they are very amateur boarders).
What do you guys think?
