looboo My snowboard is the Quiksilver Daggers. After buying it at 50% off at my local Sportchek, I realized I couldn't find any info on it online. Thus I measured the width with a tape measure. The width is about 25.2cm.

I should also note that my boots are size 7.5 US. It strikes me odd how well they fit even though I wear size 6 Converse shoes.

I think as long as you don't get a board specifically made to be wide, you should be fine.

Looking up the specs on the Goliath, if you are riding the 153, your waist width will be at 24.5, which, imo is fine.

abensie HI Looboo. What are you riding then? I am almost exactly the same size as you and had issues with my Goliath being too wide and was told on here and by the instructor in Bulgaria that i was having probs with responsiveness. I am now looking at trying a narrower set up which might mean getting a board made for the boobied ones.

Unfortunately Bataleon don't appear to make their girly boards any thinner and i love their tech. :-(

looboo I don't know too much about boards, but I'm 5'8 and 140 pounds. I have size 6.5 feet (fml...) and I was able to get guy stuff for the whole set. You shouldn't have to bother with women's stuff

Gotcha. So I should be aiming for five or below?

jdang307 I think maybe the stiffer boards, because with our light weight, a slightly stiff board may become a plank.

What flex should I avoid? I am still a fair bit of a snowboard novice.

jdang307 I am roughly your dimensions. Well I got a little heavy (145lb+) but I usually settle in the 130-140 range. In any event, I've been riding a 153. I'm looking into getting a better board and a shorter one, something more playful. 151 is what I'm looking at, NS SL or Bataleon ET or similar.

DoubleT77 I Think the size of your feet might play a factor in womens gear. A mens 10 is like a womens 12! May be better to stick to smaller stuff on the mens side. There are plenty of great freestyle boards that come in the size you're looking for.
