I'm 5'8 148 pounds, would this be a good choice?
And thus board is a lot of fun. Its really soft yet still responsive
I'd suggest getting the Salomon Drift Rocker Wide Snowboard, it has a more bang for your buck value. You'l love the Equalizer Edges for the East Coast hard pack, the Pre-Sure Rocqualizer is a great profile to slay everything, the Royal Rubber Pads absorb vibrations at high speeds, and the base edge has a Full Edge Bevel which will help you to catch less on rails/boxes.
Have fun this season! Make sure to write a review after you've been on it a few times!
The Salomon Drift Rocker is an uber soft deck with a rocker profile shape. With a very heavily influenced freestyle shape and construction this deck may not be the absolute best for freeriding, but if your technique is proper, you can take the Drift Rocker anywhere and enjoy the ride.
Your son would be best riding boards between size 154cm-158cm, and I think that the Salomon Drift Rocker Snowboard 156cm would be a good fit.
At 210 lbs you should be riding boards right around 159cm-164cm in length. With size 12 boots you should be riding boards with waist widths that are wider than 25.8cm. If you're a novice/intermediate getting a board that has a hybrid profile shape ( Camber / Rocker / Flat combo) would be a great idea.
