nitro SUBZERO how long?

Hello everyone, first of all sorry for my poor english....
i'm about to buy the nitro subzero because I want to do some fun tricks (buttering).

I want to know your opinion about the right size for me; i'm high 1.74 cm
and weight about 70 kg.

Is the 152 the snow for me? or it' too short?
Is it better a 155?
The first use is buttering but also few time i spent in powder.

I also have another snow, Burton Twin 154.

hi, i have a 152 Nitro Subzero and i am 6ft tall (1.83m) and weigh around 140 lbs (63.5 kg). If i were you i would also get a 152cm. the board is really awesome, i love it, and it is great for buttering, with a really soft flex. It also is really stable at speed for me, so i say 152, unless you plan on lossing or gaining a lot of weight in the near future.

Too Fast!

make sure the board comes up between your chest and chin when you place it on front of you. the smaller the board, the harder you spin, the bigger the board, the more stable you are (For powder i recommend Big board!)

A guy I know is both taller and bigger than you and rides the 152 everywhere, for the most part. Its obviously designed for the park and mainly for jibs, but you'll be surprised at its capability everywhere else. When it wants to, it rides like 2 stiffnesses stiffer than it is.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
