What Size Board Do You Need

OK, it's starting to piss me off, all these people asking there board sizes so I'll do my best to make a chart with most weights and riding styles. Might be a little messed up though. This is heights and weights that I think are about right and if your not on here just seach "new board" or "what board" and see if you can find you size. All sizes are in cm. All results off Snowboard Sizing Guide, Size Calculator

Freeride:
5'0", 90 pounds=134-138
5'2", 100 pounds= 140-143
5'3", 110 pounds= 143-146
5'4", 120 pounds= 146-149
5'5", 130 pounds= 148-151
5'6", 140 pounds= 152-155
5'7", 150 pounds= 154-157
5'8", 160 pounds= 156-159
5'9", 170 pounds= 158-161
5'10", 180 pounds= 159-162
5'11", 190 pounds= 160-163
6'0", 200 pounds= 162-165

I'll update it later with the freestyle category so just got to that link and try it, it seems pretty accurate. And please give some feedback on how you like this.

Unfortunately, no snowboard size calculator takes personal preference into account. None of them are accurate in my opinion. For instance, I'm 180 and ride a 158 and a 165 depending on conditions.

I don't think anyone should ever look at a size chart. They should understand what it is that determines board length, demo the sizes they feel appropriate and buy what works for them. It isn't a science.

That's just my 2 cents.

People will continue to ignore this thread just as they have continued to ignore the sticky thread that asks "Please read before posting a question"

http://www.snowboardingforum.com/gen...ease-read.html

Hell, you can google a snowboard size guide faster than it takes people to flame you for asking the damn question, and they all say the same stuff re: longer boards for powder and shorter ones for park riding.

In most cases height doesn't play a major part in board length

Take the height factor off and it will be more accurate.
