After snowboarding for 2 years (plus a break last year due to injury), my 3 other family members have finally decided they would like to snowboard along with me. Great for family time, bad for bar visits between runs :(

Anyways, I could use some assistant with boards/size recommendations. My son is 12, but weighs 120, size 9.5/10 boot and about 5'6". My wife weighs (don't tell her I told you) 150, size 9 women's boot and about 5'5". My daughter already taken care of.

I had a cheap, but new in plastic 156cm 24/7 woman's board that I gave to my son to use until we decide to buy another (can't tell that is a woman's board). I'm wonder if this is too long for my wife to learn on or better for my son to keep and learn on... or neither.

Thanks!

That's a little bit to long for the wife based upon her weight, but if you got it, you got it....

Have her ride that and buy your son a grom board

Put the wife on the board you already own and buy the son a new one, you'll save money and everyone is taken care of

Well, since both are just starting out... probably just groomed runs. My son may want to do the park along with me after he gets a little more exp.

Based on my son's weight, I thought a 143 to 149 board might be good (all-mountain or freestyle). But those boards usually have a very tiny waist. He's got size 9.5/10 boots and is growing fast.

If you chop off his toes now, he will learn to walk and he'll thank you later for being able to find shoes easier
