Snowboard sizing HELP!
I'm completely confused as to what length board I should get. I've been to 2 different snowboard shops which both told me completely different things; The first one I went to told me it's based on height & should come up to between your chin & nose. He stood one up beside me & told me I'm a 151-152.
I went to another place yesterday & asked, and they told me it's based mainly on weight. He told me I should go between 153-158.
I'm 5'5 & a little under 160lbs. I've been exercising & losing a lot of weight over the last few months though, so the weight could very well go down.
I haven't boarded in about 8 years, but when I did I was at I'd say an advanced level & I think I'll be able to pick it back up pretty quickly. I do mostly freeriding & don't spend a lot of time in the park, but I don't want to rule it out completely. I'm also a size 9 or 10 boot.
I'm looking at 3 boards, one's a 152, one's a 155 & one's a 158.
What would you recommend?
