What size board

Here's a link with some info on sizing. Don't just do the chart...read the second link explaining why and how to work in exceptions.

Milo303 Your feet are only 1 size larger then mine and my boards waists are usually 265ish and I'm fine

Boards are rated based upon your weight and the type of riding your going to do. I would say a mid 160's is going to be good for you as an all mountain board. Maybe even slightly closer to 170.

Low 160s would be a park board for you

And obviously make sure you get a wide board

6'9" need help selecting board size

I'm looking to buy my first snowboard. I'm 6'9", 245lbs and have size 15 boots.

I've only rented so far and always gotten the biggest board possible.

165 was entirely too small with massive toe drag and it was wobbily once i picked up any speed.

I was able to rent a 169 Ride Yukon and liked it a lot (less drag and more stable)

I'm thinking bout getting a 2010 Yukon but I have no idea if 172 would be too big or just right, or if I should just stick with the 168.

I'm an intermediate rider looking for an all mountain board.

Any help/suggestions is greatly appreciated
