Default Weight chart

This might be a stupid question but i'm going to ask it anyway.

are the weights on snowboard size charts your own weight without clothing? Or in full snowboarding gear?

Thanks in advance!

I would just stick with your naked weight plus a few lbs.

When someone asks you, "how much do you weight?" Do you say, "with my snowboard gear on or off?"

It's what the reads when you stand on it...wear what ever you like.

Doesn't really matter. Weight charts are just a general guide and not a definitive answer for board size. Manufacturers usually put a pretty broad weight range on each size of their boards too.

You would usually be on your board WITH clothes, although maybe not , so I would go with the clothed weight.

Forget the weight charts. Board size has too many variables. Snow types and conditions you usually ride are big ones. I'm 290 and ride a 159w as a daily board for most conditions but require 168w for powder over 10-12" deep on a smaller slope like green or small blue. I can keep my speed up enough on a black rated slope with my 159w in deeper pow but its more work.

So what would you recommend for a 5'8'' tall 155 lbs male as an allround intermediate board. A 151 or 155 cm burton clash? I know its not the best board but its my first non rental.

What kind of terrain will you mainly be ridding? The Clash is just an all mountain cruiser board and if that is what you plan to do, I would say 55.

I would guess the 155 should suit You well for those purposes. With the ez v design you could get away with a 151 if you Don't plan on ever seeing soft snow.
