A little on my snowboard size.

So I read the FAQ thread, and went to the site that explained everything. But I am quite a weird case. I am 149cm in height but only weigh about 85 pounds. I know it sounds ridiculous for a 21 year old female but that's how it is So most of the time when I shop at the women's boards section, there's only about 3-4 boards available in size. I used one of those size calculators and they told me I need a 132cm board? On the snowboard buying guide, it doesn't even have my weight and the lightest weight starts at 100 pounds for for FAQ. Would I be needing to shop for a kids board then? So far I can't find one with a decent pattern since they are for kids after all. I am still very new to this, I started snowboarding 7 years ago, but finally able to buy my own gear. The only thing I have so far are boots :P

Maybe look at boys boards. There are a few brands out there that make quality grom boards that should fit your weight.

I'd also go with a boys board. Almost all of the reputable manufacturers make them.

Here's an overview: On Sale Snowboards, All Brands Boys - Snowboard, Snowboarding Gear

Of course, if you can you should always buy at a local store
