iloveboardign Thanks for all your help. I'm gonna take it out again on Friday and see how it goes

lilfoot1598 That is fine for your size and the B-Nice is a fairly forgiving board. If you're having a hard time, consider getting a lesson - a trained eye could really help you clean up your turns.

that's the magnetraction initiating the turn faster than you are used to. you'll get accustomed to it it just takes a little while

Are you falling because it is sliding out on a turn? Or are you falling entering a turn? Or turning at slow speeds?

unsunken Nah, if anything I might say it's a tad short. You probably just have to get used to it. 148cm is significantly longer than 140cm and like jgsqueak said, it's probably different from what you've ridden in the past. Back when I was 120lbs I was happily riding my 150cm board. I'm sure you'll be fine on it once you get used to it; length isn't the issue.

is my board too long

i started snowboarding in 2009. and when i rented i usually got around a 140cm. when i bought a snowboard this year the guy said i should have a 148cm. ive now used my 148 twice and am falling way more than i used too.

im 5' 135lbs. size 7 or 8 boot. and i dont go in the terrain park.

is 148cm too long for my height/weight?

ps i bought a GNU B-Nice series board.

thanks
