board for wife.
 
Hey guys, my wife wants to get into boarding. And she is a beginner.

She is 165cms and 100kgs, and a size US 8/EUO 41 boot. She has some islander in her.

Would she need a bigger board to compensate for her weight/skill level.
Eg, 156-158? Or would a 152 be ok??

Sorry i don't have pictures of the bottom of the board. Anyone have any idea what sort of board and bindings these are?

Bumb for answer on 152 size board, as I can pick up an unused ride crush 09/10 board for next to nothing.

Excellent your wife wants to get into snowboarding!

Sorry I can't ID the board/bindings you posted. As far as board size, I'd think based on her weight something more mid 150's would be best, but if you can get the Ride board for a deal, it's probably fine for her to learn on. I have a Ride with the Lowrize rocker. It's a decent profile for sure, and will likely be kind in the learning process.

Here's a review on that year's board by a heavier female rider, also with size 8 boot Snowboard Review: 09-10 Ride Crush

Hope this helps some!

Thanks for the reply. The ride board only comes in 152, is that still ok?

When you say she has 'some islander in her,' I take that as she's strong/powerful? If so, it's possible she'd outgrow it quickly, I'd think. But if this is a deck meant for her to learn the basics on and have some fun, the difference between a 154 and a 152 might be negligible? If she progresses quickly and gets serious about riding, something longer might be best.

Do you know what the weight range is on the 152?

Powerfull! She is a power lifter. Its like 120lb to 180lb haha. She has snowboarded twice, but hired the gear. And i cant remember what length was.

Im going to try and sauce a 155cm board. As i think she will need a future proof board.

Ah. Then something at least mid 150's to maybe high 150's for sure. I'd skip the 152, even though it's a deal. Likely she'd fold it right up with that kind of power! :laugh:

Might want to look into something on the stiffer side, too. Any chance you/she can demo?

No she cant demo, But i'll look out for a 155 - 158 board that is stiff on the flex scale. Thanks for your help.
