5'2 and about 85 lbs - Help with board sizing and picking out a board?

2577 Views 20 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  WasabiCanuck
* Height: 5'2
* Weight: 85 lbs (I'm trying to gain weight, but I won't let that stop me from buying a board)
* Boot Size: 8 / 9 (depending on the boot)

I have been snowboarding for around 3 years now. I can do blacks just fine and am starting to do double blacks (going to Park City soon and am excited to go check out Jupiter Peak). I have rented boards this entire time and they have always been anywhere in between 140cm - 150cm.

Type of Board
*Flex Rating 5-6
*Should be able to butter well

If anybody could help me out with finding a board and a good size (or help with either one) that would be amazing, thanks!

P.S. My best guess for a snowboard size for me would be 145cm.

try the ns mini proto 142
this will give you some room to grow
my son is your size size 8.5 boot 90 lbs he rides the 140
this is a great all around board will handle anything, and has great pop

Yup totally agree. :goodpost: As I've mentioned on a couple other threads, I just got the full size Proto and I love it. Great suggestion Larry, this kid might be able to find it on sale too.
