Incogneato well i guess i'm breaking the rules since i only have one weight and height but i ride boards between 55 and 66. your weight ranges are out to lunch in that post, most manufacturers even if they list a recommended weight are 50 to 80 pounds or more in range, not 145-165 or whatever you first said. i am easily over the recommended weight range on most of the boards i ride. the size of board you ride is based on the type of riding you do and personal preference, not height and weight. again, 90% of the boards sold are in a 10 cm range, and riders weights vary to a much larger degree, you can't really screw up your board size very easily. whos to say a guy on a 56 should be on a 158? its not like the guy on the 156 just can't even snowboard because hes not on a 58. once he tries a 58 he may realize he prefers the extra length, but its not like hes going to look back at all his time on the 56 and regret every day of it.

I have to catagorically disagree. See the link my previous post.

Actually, no, that is incorrect. Read the forum FAQ's. See post #5.

too small for what though? its not like the board is going to blow up if you get one too small, you can ride any size you want. sure if you're a big guy on a little board there is going to be some compromise with stabillity at speed ( esp. if its soft as well) or in deep snow. if you are a little guy on a board thats a bit bigger than what you normally use then there will be a compromise in the other direction, it could be more stable at high speed and harder to freestyle.

if you took 10 dudes that where 5'8 and 160 pounds (just as an example) you'd probably find they ride different sizes of boards and do fine on them, there is no rule to what size you need, and 90% of all boards sold are between 152 and 162. thats a 10 cm range, not a big deal.

00gab00ga You could try using Google to search for some snowboard size calculators. That should give you a basic idea of what to aim for.

too short in what sense? the specs should say its maximum stance width or if it says what the reference stance is you can usually add 4 inches to that for the max stance (generally)

sedition Smaller will always be easier to throw around for freestyle stuff. If you can drop down in size, do so.
