...So do I!

You're a Douchewad Fuckstick! No offense, "just calling things with their real name!"


BTW,... anybody can pull a pic from the interwebz you stupid Knob! Phone pic of you with your arm around her or you're a lying Douchewad Fuckstick to boot!

I'm actually impressed that our members didn't jump on the bandwagon, and instead chose to stand on the side of right!

Best of luck to her, and kudos to you for not being just another shallow asshole!

stevros48 thanks for all the help and replies people....my gf went with a K2 lunatique 151cm with k2 charm bindings......the sales girl at snow store did say that once she starts tackling trickier slopes that she will need to move to a 153cm board but while shes doing slow stuff on green and easy blue trails and no jumps the board is long enough and stable for its purpose...we will give you an update as to how things come along.....meanwhile can anyone help me with my other question on bindings for my skate banana ?

Lamps I would avoid lexas for a new rider, they are a pretty stiff binding. My wife and two daughters all tried lexas as intermediate riders and as beginners. Two of the three of them found the lexas very stiff. I would recommend Escapades if budget allows, my wife really likes them, super comfortable. My one daughter rides stilettos and really likes them. They're still a pretty good quality binding, not bottom end like the citizens.

My youngest daughter at 9 years old rides a cambered boys board that should be way too long for her, carves like a demon and loves the lexas, although it may be based on the colour

Kevin137 I am 5"11 - 156cm & 14.5 stone - 92kg

I ride 4 different boards through the season, and they vary between 153 and 158, and will have a powder board of 163 added to the quiver this season...

I have never taken any notice of height, and as weight fluctuates for me, i can be 15kg lighter seasons end, i have never taken much notice of that either, every board rides differently, and has different characteristics, so comes down to personal choice...

In my mind, for your g/f i would suggest between 153 and 155 but i would definitely not be smaller than 153...

thanks spino....i guess the dumbies who work up at the hire places up the ski resorts were way off when giving her a 145 and 147 using the silly measure the board up to the chin method......im 175cm and 75kg and use a 158 as powder board and 156 libtech banana for mucking round in

my wife is 175 cm tall and weighs 58, and is riding a 149 b-street.
i would really do my best to convince your gf to go a few cm longer.

stevros48 yes kosmos believe it or not at 165cm she had to chose between rep basketball for New Zealand or to play for the Silver Ferns netball team which is extremely hard to achieve herr...she also supports me in my new found passion for snowboarding...i took it up at age 37 and am utterly hooked....we intend to go to winter park in colorado...blackcomb and whistler and check out the Pow in Japan....seeing travis rices dvds hooked me into it....changed my life.
