snowboard size

So I am probably going to be getting into snowboarding pretty fast now that I have some money, but I need a little help on dimensions.

Im about 5 8 and 135, what should the size of my board be?

That will depend on the type of riding you intend to do.

My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

I'd say the safe bet is something in the 151 to 153 range.

I'm your dimensional twin, and I ride a 148 for park/jibs. So for learning, i'd say a 151-154.

and crazydrummer, get the 151.

Snowboarding Is...

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