My 8 year old son would like me to try snowboarding with him. I am 4' 10" femaile and about 160lbs. I am athletic, play ice hockey and can ski but not sure what size board to look for? Can anyone help?

should I just go for a shorter board 138, 140 or worry about my weight and go bigger. I'm not sure how hard it will be to turn with a bigger board
Hi,

Awesome that you want to snowboard with your son! I'm taking my 11 year old nephew out this season (if we ever get more snow!).

As for a board, definitely choose a size based on your weight, not your height. Have you researched or considered any up to this point? Also, it's helpful to include your boot size and the location/conditions you'll be riding.

OT - ice hockey player? Nice! I love hockey but have never been on skates lol
