SNOWBOARD Length and Size
Weight and the type of riding is most important factor in determining the appropriate board length.
For instance, you may consider to use longer board for freeriding that will be more stability and speed. On the other hand, if you are going to doing freestyle, you may consider to use shorter board that will be easier to spin and maneuver in the terrain park or half-pipe.
- If you are a beginner, seek for a shorter size in your range.
- If you are above average weight consider a longer snowboard.
- If you're riding primarily freeriding, powder or all mountain, consider a snowboard on the longer end of the size range.
- If you're riding is mostly freestyle or in the park, go for a board on the shorter end of the size range.
