Board length

Don't know if anyone has seen this before. Kind of cool. Too bad the board data isn't up to date.

Snowboard Length Calculator

Here's another.

I found both of them to be pretty much right on for me. I only ride freeride boards and they were both within 2cm of what I ride now. Waist width was off on the second one, but I only ride boards with a 260+ waist. With size 10 boots it tries to put me more around 250.

What did you find so far off?

How about others?

Hm...well I am 5'9" 125 lbs, an intermediate rider who rides freeride/freestyle pretty equally. According to those I should have a board between 150 and 153 cm...I just bought a 156 cm. that I thought was my size so idk... the calculators were alright but for my case not close to MY oppinion of what size I should ride. Then again everyone's size is subjective to their opinion so...

I think at that weight depending on the board you probably are more well suited to ride a 150-153.

is it a huge issue to go a bit short on a board? i'm 5'11" 200 lbs and just ordered a 154. i've ridden a 157 up until now and it's been fine. that site suggests 158 as the shortest for pure freestyle and my dimensions

going a 'bit' short is no big boggle IMO; it may not be optimal but it ought not be detrimental

however, for your stats, your chosen board is more than just 'a bit' on the short side. for 200lbs, i wouldn't wish to go sub 160cm, unless you are looking exclusively for a park / jib plank.

but in any case, the proof of the pudding is in the eating and if it works for you then fine! having said all this, i am about 200lbs and i learnt on a 156!

as for the caluculators, i thought they were okay!

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

Your best option is to still get in touch with the manufacturer of the board you're interested in. Their response will also tell you alot about their customer service down the road. Personally if I were guessing at a board length, it would be better to go with a longer board.
