Board Waist

I had a question regarding the waist size of boards. I have a size 9 boot and was wondering if there is some kind of "range" in board widths I should be looking at. I know I don't need a wide, but would a 24 be too small? Would a 25.2 be too big?

I found a few places that you could input your height, weight and foot size into and it would spit out what size you should get (including the waist). I don't remember where it was but a quick google search will yield it as that is how I found it.

with a size 9 you should be fine on just about any waist width. You're right in the middle boot size wise so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I think this may be the site you were looking for. Snowboard Sizing Guide, Size Calculator It gives you a nice estimate for the waste width range you should be looking into.

IMO, your best guide is testing things out for yourself.

so far this summer I have ridden a number of boards that have a smaller waist size than what is recommended for my boot size (12). for most of these boards not only was it not a problem but I actually had a better ride than ever before (i think the smallest waist i rode was a 25.5 and it was perfectly fine)

if I were you, i would take a look at all these guides, measures, and all the rest of it and then try things out for yourself (assuming you can test boards for free). after trying out things for yourself proceed to laugh at all the websites, guides, formulas and any other crap that claims to be able to tell you what you should be riding.
