leoport I'm getting back into riding after a long hiatus. I'm looking for something playful and poppy—but don't want to have a hard time carving at moderate speed. I'm close to Tahoe—so there is plenty of terrain available (well, not this year).

I rode a burton custom 154 over the weekend and it just wasn't great. I DO think it was too big, but also may have been the wrong camber. I want to stick with burton because I have a discount.

Nivek Yeah too small. For whatever reason they have seemed to have programmed it to only take boot size into consideration. Give it the same stats but a size 10 and it'll give you the 51.

What board are you looking at and where do you wanna ride?

Burton Board Finder: 148 too small? (snowboard size)

Are the recommended sizes from Burton's Board Finder a little small? (burton.com/boardfinder)

For 5' 7" - 149 lb - Boot 9 - Intermediate; All my recommendations are 148. Even if I tweak the terrain/speed/personality/experience knobs: I still get 148.

According to the finder: "For a 5'7", 149 lb. male we recommend a board size of 148 cm"

Comparing to almost every other sizing chart out there—these seem small (or Burton really wants me to be a jib/park rider). The reason I'm surprised is because Burton offers 151 in many of the boards they are recommending at 148.

Thoughts?
