I'm 18, 5'2 and about 105-110 pounds. I'm buying a snowboard and I love the Smokin Awesymmetrical
Awesymmetrical
I know it's a mens board so i'm taking into consideration that it could be too heavy and wide for my size, I would get a 148. I think it would be okay, but I would like some advice. Should I not purchase a mens board?

Depends on your ability. If you are comfortable with riding, this board is probably fine. There are probably better choices out there for you. We got some solid women riders here, and a couple of the guys just plain know snowboards.

So what do you like to ride and how aggressive are you? I am sure the recommendations will start pouring in with that info.

What kind of riding do you do? How good are you? If your an aggressive all mountain rider then that board will be fine, just kinda wide for you. If you are not an aggressive experienced rider, get something in the 142-144 range of women's boards, maybe even down to 139. Their PYT is a great park/all mountain board, the vixen is a great aggressive all mountain women's board. I have at least one of each board mentioned. My wife rides PYT and vixen. I have an awesymetrical for this season and rode one this summer for a couple days/runs.

If your serious and want the lowdown on their lineup I can get you wara or jays email address to ask them. They are the company owners and pretty great people deal with.

I do all mountain and I want to learn how to do park, I'm more beginner but I have been skiing for a long time so I got the hang of it pretty quick, i'm determined to improve and learn. I'm comfortable with riding. I have a size 9 foot, and I've been riding a 151 horoscope for as my starting board and I enjoy it.

The awesym probably isnt the best for you but you could ride it and have fun. PYT would more suit your desires.

Why do you feel it isn't best? Because of the weight and size? I plan on getting a 148' for whatever board I decide on

If you wanna do park at all it is way to stiff for 110lb chick to press it out. If your just aggressive freeride or hitting med/lg jumps then the board would work OK.

Do you really wanna buy a board that costs that much just cause it is pretty and not exactly optimal for what you want?

Well, i guess that is a rhetorical question since I'm typing to an 18y/o chick! It is a super nice board and you CAN ride it around and have fun. Buy it.

I wasn't sure if it would be optimal for me or not, it's a sick board not just a pretty design, too bad i'm not heavy enough, thanks.

You have a foot of a 5'7 chick! Your foot size is definitely alright for a mens board.
