seriously.... height only matters extreme ratios like Alaric likes to quote if your 5'0" and 200lbs or 6'0" and 120

In order for the board to give you the greatest advantage Weight comes first followed by foot size then height when determining stance.

Let us know your weight and boot size or I'll give you false and misleading information and you'll have the worst season of your life!

Okay I kid, but seriously. Let us know your weight and boot size. What type of board are you thinking about getting? If you're not sure, we can recommend some for you.

life IS good.

How tall are you NOW? How old are you? You need to find out what boot size you are before you look into boards.

Ha, same situation here, big feet (11.5 and growing) and gonna be tall, kinda a sucky combination for snowboarding IMO, but I guess I'll get by.
