    I've been snowboarding every other day for the past 2 weeks now and I bought a used board that's 158cm(High Society: Empire) and today after riding, the board felt flimsy. like if i was standing on flat ground i could twist my back foot and get the back of the board to torque 20-30 degrees with...

    So I have never snowboarded before. I used to ski quite a lot but this winter I've decided to give snowboarding a try. I discovered that it's basically cheaper to buy used equipment online than to rent a couple times. I found boots that fit great but I'm struggling with a board. Obviously I've...

    Hey! I started riding last season and got about 20 days in. I picked it up pretty quick, and while the resorts in my area have pretty short runs, I’m confident riding their double blacks. I ride a 158 Park Platinum 2020 from Signal. Boot size 10.5 Large bindings, I’m 5’9” 200lb. I’m enjoying...

    Hi everyone, I am going to be purchasing my first snowboard and I am wondering if The Ride Agenda 147 cm is right for me. I've done a lot of research and even went to a Burton store with my current snowboard and they recommended me to get a board <= 148 cm. The current board that I have is a...

    Hello, I am 5'7" 210lbs (~95kg). I am riding a 156 2006 Burton Custom, which is still standing strong but you can tell it is really old. I want to get a new board, but the problem is I ride extremely aggressively and I am pretty heavy. My background is downhill longboarding, so when I...

    Hey guys, I wonder whether it's big difference between older model of the same deck and its newer version. I am thinking about buying a Rome Garage Rocker deck and I've found a really good bargain for 2010/11 deck (I know, pretty old...) but I am a bit afraid that the technology of the deck...

    So I've noticed a trend on the forum about people asking what size board they should ride and everyone bases it off weight. I don't think that weight should be a big deciding factor of what size board you buy. t seems mostly about riding style and personal preference. I've seen guys that are 150...

    So for the past few seasons I've felt like a boxer. You know, the ones that fight at a weight a good bit lower than their walk around (natural) weight when they're not in training for a bout. I lose weight in winter due to snowboarding and put the weight back on during summer and autumn. So...

    Hi, I am about to pick up my first board, a Ride Machete 2013, but am a little stuck on which size to get. I wear a size 10US Nike Vapen and weigh around 85kg/187lbs. At the moment I'm deciding between a 158 or 160 regular width. I mostly ride all mountain with a bit of park thrown in (looking...

    Hey guys! So I'm getting myself my first snowboard, a Lib Tech TRS Women's edition. But I can't seem to decide on what size to get it in, and I'll love some advice. Problem is I'm not too tall, but I'm a bit on the heavier side. So I'm a 5.1 feet, which is 155cm, and I weigh 60 kilos, 133...

    Okay so I really want a new snowboard and this one is on sale but my only concern is the size. I'm 6 foot tall and 140 pounds and I want to use the board for all mountain. Would that be crazy or what? How much does height relative to weight matter with snowboard size? THANKYOU

    Hey guys, I just bought my first board! did my research and figured a 156 would be the ideal size for me. I really liked the Forum Kitchen sink (2013) which comes in 154.5 or 157.5 so I decided to go up to the 157.5 and was happy with that decision, until I saw the manufacturer recommended...

    if i weigh 300 pounds is it okay to ride a board that is 160 cm. i dont understand what the weight limit is for unless im doing a board slide. but i could do 50/50's instead. will the board break if i go off of a jump or something?

    After boarding about 8 times and improving enough to make it down a hill consistently at a decent speed, without falling and feeling pretty comfortable, I bought my first board, a Salomon Lotus 142. I discovered that I could not even turn without wiping out. It seemed as though I could not...

    Hey, I have a 2006 Burton Custom thats a 154mm I'm 5'7" and weight about 210 pounds Is that to big for that board? The board says 120-170 pounds but does the weight really make a difference? Thanks.
