|edmontonsara||Thanks all for the help! It was kinda unnerving to look at all the size charts and see none going over 220lbs! One other thing though, for a guy who is 6ft tall he kinda has short legs I dont think a 163 would be a problem, but when he eventually moves up to a 167 or 169 will he be able to have a stance that isnt way too wide for him? (ROFL) You guys must have an interesting mental image of him at this point... 6ft tall, 250lbs, stubby legs!|

|nzboardlife||If you plan on replacing this board a little later on (when hes a bit better) i would go with the 163 if its at a resonable price, if it will handle his weight. Being a 163 rather thn a higher 160 it will make it easier for him to turn.|

Thanks, I'll go look for that boot post now.
LOL, I can take 30 5 year olds btw.

|Gustov||mid/upper 160's seems like where he's probably gonna be with length. boards have a weight range that they suggest, so you should look at that when considering. probably an all mountain board would be best, since he's just starting out. for boots make him go to a shop and try a bunch on to see which is most comfortable, brand is not important. there's a boot fitting guide sticky somewhere on this forum.|

Need help figuring out board size!
Okay so my hubby finally tried boarding last week and he loved it! I want to pick up a used board for him over the summer, but I cant find a size chart that helps. He wears a US 10.5 boot, is 6ft tall, and weighs 250. He has only been out once and can do green runs. He has no interest in park riding, just cruising groomed runs/powder. Any idea what size board he should be riding at this point? should I be looking for a stiff board because he is so heavy? He also has very wide feet, so any recomendations for wide fitting boots would be helpful too. Thanks!
