Hi Spirit,

Great question. The answer will be unsatisfying.

There is no industry standard for what needs to be measured. Hypothetically, the most common measurement is a straight line from tip to tail (not following the countors of the board). But (and this is a huge but) many (most?) decks do not match the length that is printed on the deck. 1 or 2 cm off is very common. 3 or 4 cm off is not uncommon. The "size" printed on your board should be considered a marketing term only.

But...tip to tip measurement is a very poor indicator of how a board will perform. It is most valuable for determining the bag size that you should buy . Factors like Effective Edge and Weighted Running Length will be much more useful.

STOKED!

The slots should go tip-to-tail, not edge-to-edge.

You should be using the heelcup on the binding itself, along with any possible toestrap adjustments to adjust toe/heel overhang. Once you have your boot centered, with equal overhang on each edge, then adjust your toestrap and ankle strap so they close properly when tightened.

I hope this is helpful!!

Incorrect. Most disks the slots can go either way for tip-to-tail or toe-to-heel fine tuning. Much more common to use for the latter/as in picture.

I have Ride revolts circa 2010/11. I don't see any adjustment for the heel cup. I feel like my boot is a bit over the toe edge more so than the heel. (I do have forward lean all the way forward...)

When adjusting the footbed toward the toe edge a bit, this appear to allow the boot to sit back toward the heel more.

Does this make sense?

Oldman Doesn't change how you feel about it, but Jones Mountain twin is an RCR ( rocker / camber / rocker) profile and is one of the most well received, well loved all mountain boards out there.

Different strokes

chewoot Until a week ago i never realised that a profile of a board would make so much difference. I have been boarding since 1998 back when a board was a flat plank. I have been riding a NS since 2012 which is a rocker camber profile. I replaced it this year with a Jones Mountain Twin which is a camber rocker profile and disliked nearly ever minute i rode it. In powder it was a great board but on the flat hard pack it felt as squillery as hell. Needless to say its now on Ebay.

Mihai Cristian I live in Bucharest, Romania so yeah i have some snowboard stores but they are more online orientated. We have some good stores in Brasov, wich is a mountain city but i can t go to another city just to test boards. I will try to see if i can view in store the raven gravy as they said the 154cm board is into the deposit and maybe they can bring it to the store to see it.

Wiredsport Hi Mihai,

I hope that this is helpful for visualizing the issue. Your foot with zero degrees is just short of the edges. Your angled front foot is significantly inside the confines of the edges. We would like to see your bare foot just overhanging the edges for both toes and heels. That alone will make your riding much more positive feeling as the board will transition more easily from edge to edge and will allow better leverage and control when you are on edge. This is especially true for newer riders. Your second issue is actually what is causing you even more difficulty. The size of your bindings is moveing both of your feet back over the heelside edge (and by quite a lot). Inside your boots your toes are going to be far back from the toeside edge.

My suggestions:

First, find a binding that is made for a 260 mm foot (US size 8 in snowboard boots). This will allow you better centering on any board and will allow you to take advantage of the binding's features, such as toe ramping, which also will help you develop leverage.

Then, go stand on some boards. Don't be embarrassed to whip off your socks and stand on some decks barefoot. You are looking for overhang (both toe and heel). Do you have access to boards where you are? If not are you able to order online?

I can suggest a few products that I know will work for you but it sounds like yo may have limited access to gear. Is that correct?
