  1. Welcome New Riders And New Members
    Hello, I am currently 6'2" about 240lbs. I just purchased a golden orca snowboard at a size of 161 and it's decently wide. I love everything I've seen about this board, but I'm concerned it might be too short...I can always return? I'm mainly mountain riding/ freestyle. Nothing too crazy in the...

    Hey guys, My boots are 30.7 cm long (US9.5 / 42.5EU) and I am 170lbs, 6'4. I have to decide between the 156 (25,2cm waist) and 155W (25,8cm waist) version of the Capita DOA. 156: 30,6 - 25,2 = 5,4 cm (on the actual inserts it would be around 4,5 cm) 155W: 30,6 - 25,8 = 4,8 cm (on the...

    Hey everyone, I've narrowed down my first board (beginner side of intermediate) to a good deal I found on a Jones Frontier (formerly Explorer). Now I need to decide on sizing, between 158W and 161W. I'm 6'3 but only 165 lbs, and 12.5 boot size. The Jones website says the 158W is a width of...
  5. Boots
    Hi Looking to upgrade to a set on Burton Step On Boots & Bindings and as my local TSA only go down to a UK size 8 was wanting to double check my sizing before ordering online. I've done a bit of reading on here, including using the most excellent snowboardbootsizer but feel i need to double...

    Hello, I'm looking at a 2019 Yes Greats and I'm wondering which size is the most suitable. I'm mainly riding mountain at the moment, would love the ability to carve well, medium flex, but would love to have the potential to take it to park/jumps and jibs - basically a do-it-all board but...
  8. Boots
    Hello, I am looking into getting new boots, because my old ones blew out yesterday. I was looking into getting either the Salomon Launch Lace SJs, or Lo-Fi boots. I am an all mountain, freestyle rider, and a size 9 in boots. I also read that Salomon runs a half size small, but the reviews I...

    I apologize if this is a super cliche question, but I am bad with decisions and wanted to hear from others. I am currently unhappy with my 32 Binary Boas, even with the Intuition liner heated to my foot shape AND superfeet custom molded insoles, so I've decided to try a new pair of boots. I am...

    It's that time of the year again and the snowboarding closet needs a bit of an update from my previous boarding gear (3SC). Looking to purchase either the 15/16 Cyclic jacket or the 16/17 Cyclic jacket. Just need some advice for the sizing side of things. I'm 5'10, 176lbs, athletic build with a...

    Hi Everyone, I just bought a 2015 Burton Custom X Wide (159) with 2015 Cartel Bindings and 2015 Burton Heritage BOA Boots (Size 12). I have been riding an 08 Burton Custom X (156) for 7 years now. I am 5'10, 183 pounds, and a size 10.5 shoe. Here are my questions: 1. Should i downsize...

    I'm thinking of buying a Yes Greats as an all mountain board because I understand it has some stiffness and pop for more aggressive riding but it does pretty well in powder too. I enjoy carving and also bouncing around a bit off features, but not into park riding. I’m a man, 5’9” (175cm)...

    So I've never been snowboarding before, but I want to start this season. I'm not sure what I should get for a board, but I did see a nice looking package on The-House(.)com. ( On Sale 2117 Of Sweden Fader Snowboard w/ 2117 Holmesta Boots & 2117 Storm Bindings 2014 board-package-0057 ). I like...

    Looking to buy my first board. I'm a pretty petite female at 5'0" ft tall and 97 lbs. Looking at sizing charts on various sites (proboardshop, burton, etc;), women's boards are a bit on the larger size for my weight. Is it okay to use a Kid's board? And does male or female really matter?

    Hi, My old board - 165cm, camber, 255 width, which I rode for 8 seasons gave up. After some reserch I decided Never Summer Cobra should suit my needs. I spent most of the time freeriding, usually in tight trees, and a few days a season on more open spaces, also off-piste. I'd say I am advaced...

    I’m in a real big debacle here, I need a new jacket. Well I don’t really need one but mine is getting pretty cruddy… Anyways I am 5’4 about 130 pounds and I do prefer a bit more slimmer cut on pants and jackets. I just bought the burton destro pants a month or two ago and love them. Very...
