Snowboard length.

Hey guys, I'm thinking about getting a new snowboard and I dont know what size I should get. I'm about 5'7" and 130-140 lbs. I want a board a but short because I ride mostly park. I don't love near any big mountains, so I won't be going on any large terrain. Could anyone provide a good snowboard length for me?

I would suggest 142 give or take a few centimeters. Although this will depend on the type of freestyle you do. 142 would be good for jib and rails whereas something around 145 would be more suited to your larger kickers or pipe.

However, just as important as the length is the flex of your board. If your into your street features go for something soft but for your larger park, look for something a bit more stable. Hope this helps

Just find one that goes up to your chin. Disregard your weight, foot size and primary riding conditions.

Hi Hunt,

Stoked that you are getting a new deck!

Tip to tip board length is not a good indicator of how a board will perform or what rider specs it was designed for. There is no one size that will work for any given rider and the size range that would be correct for you to cover all appropriate boards would be far to large to be useful to you.

Also rider height is not a factor in board sizing. Only weight and foot size. So...we have you at 130-14 lbs. What is your foot size? Are there any particular models or brands that you have been looking at?

Whisky Milita has good deals on last years model now.

Also Statussnow.com has a 149 park board for 99$ pressed in the NeverSummer Factory. Very nice board and same Rocker Camber tech as NS.
