Default Help appreciated!

I'm currently looking to pick up a Roxy Ollie Pop '11 for this coming season (can't wait to head out to the mountains!!) and ideally had wanted the 141cm. However, I did find someone who was selling their '11 Ollie Pop with Burton Stilettos (not fond of the bindings..) for a decent price. It is a 145cm however. I'm 5'3", weigh about 115 lbs, foot size 5.5, beginner-ish and mostly freeride. Would the 145cm be a bit too long? Thanks!!

The 145 isn't too long for freeride. It realy depends on whether you prefer a shorter or longer board - either would work for you.

Oh, and you're right about the Stilettos - total crap.

I'm 5 lbs heavier than you (120 lbs/5'8"/size 8 boot) and find my 146 (Gnu) a good length.

Hi Tacii,

You are a 5.5 women's, correct?

If so, you should really hold off for the 141. A 5.5 women's foot is 22.5 cm long. The waist on the Ollie 141 is 23.5 and it will be at least 1 cm more at the inserts depending on your stance width. That means that your toes and heels will be significanly inside the edges of the board, which is less than ideal. At your foot size there will be no avoiding that but it will be best if you can minimize that as much as possible.

PS, The Ollie is a great board

Happy riding!

Thanks! Yes, I wear a women's size 5.5 boot. I'll hold out for the 141 and I meant to say my weight was 105, not 115!
