Board help?!

Hi, I'm totally lost about what size board I need. I'm looking at either a 150 or a 152. I'm 5,10', 135lbs and size 9 feet and I'm a girl. I ride all-mountain. Thanks!

Size is more about weight then height. I weight about the same but I'm 5'7" and ride a 147. I think a 150 would be fine for you, just my opinion

Every board is going to support a different weight range and boot size so all I can give you is a general range to look at. The easiest way to do it is reference the board's weight scale. You want to look for a size where your weight falls closest to the center of that scale. This is your all-mountain size.

Please don't take any offense as this next comment is strictly to help you. Given your light weight, your boot size is on the larger side. You want to make sure you find a board with at least a 24cm (240mm) waist. Anything below is cutting it close for overhang which is not a good thing.

Here is a general size range:

147-154

Okay thank you! I was looking at a men's board, 150cm (Rossignol District) or a woman's board 152cm (Omatic Super). Which board would work better for me? Thanks again!

Mens boards are typically stiffer and wider so depending how strong you are it might be a bit more harder to turn and control in comparison to a womens board. I'd suggest the womens board, but that said, I don't think you would have an extra hard time using the mens board.

I haven't found one that's that exact size in my price range. So far those two boards are the best I've found.

depending on your budget you could go for a few of these boards? quick checked the omatic super and it was likee 350? so got a few around that price.

Rome Jett - 147,151
Forum Aura - 149 & 152
Flow Elation - 147,151
Arbor Eden - 148,152
( all 2010/11 models )

Not sure if any of these will help but they seem to be good all mountain boards
