Edit* Im 5'8 135lbs with a size 11 boot what size would be best?
Brett P on Nov 20, 2014
Best Answer: I'm 6'0" 185 and I was told a 156 was the best length for me, it went to about under my chin so I'd say to use that as a guide unless you're still young. Try whatever feels comfortable when you ride.

I have been riding for 15 years, what determines and entry level board and a advanced level board... I ride all terrain, but do not frequent the park as mush as I used to. I wear a 13 boot and was checking out the 159W or the 162 W. Any other recommendations? I was just turned off by the recommended use part.

Best Answer: Part 1 of 2

Hello Stephen,

The snowboard industry has set a basic standard of a board's suggested use mainly categorized by a board's overall flex/feel rating. Softer boards are generally suggested to be used by novice riders, medium flexing boards by intermediates, and stiff boards by advanced level riders. With that being said there is much more that can attribute to a suggestion like, profile shape (camber, rocker, flat, hybrid), fiberglass, additional laminates, and base material to mention a few. In addition to that is the terrain type; backcountry, powder, park, pipe, trees ect...

I believe that a board should be picked by the rider's personal preference. Can an advance rider ride a softer board with a rocker shape? Absolutely. Can a novice rider use a stiff board with traditional camber? Sure, but it may not be as easy to learn on. The most important thing to consider is choosing a board that is going to ride the way you want it to in the conditions/terrain that you want to ride.

As an advanced level rider I could ride a soft board with a rocker shape to freeride, but it wouldn't be as stable as I would like at high speeds, that's why I choose to ride stiff camber boards when I cruise. When making park laps I like to ride a soft/medium flexing board because it's easier to press on rails.

Being that you have size 13 boots, I'd definitely suggested getting a "wide" board, or at least a board that has a waist width wider that 25.8cm.

Choosing the length of a snowboard, as you may well know, should be determined mostly by the riders weight. Generally 159cm boards have a weight range between 150-190 lbs., whereas 162cm boards have a weight range between 160-200 lbs. Pick the size that puts your weight closest in the the middle of the range.

For a rider that weighs 230 would the 162W be a good choice?

I'm 5'8 and 130lbs. What size would be best for me?
Brett P on Nov 20, 2014
Best Answer: I would say a 152 would work or maybe one size smaller if you plan on riding mostly park. If you're going to ride outside of the park more often than not than I would say either a 155 or 157. But it really comes down to personal preference. I'm 6ft 200lbs and I ride a 162 outside the park and a 156 in the park.

I am 5'10'', weigh 156 pounds and intend to wear size 10 boots. Do you folks think I should go for a 156 or a 156W Skate Banana?
A shopper on Nov 9, 2014
Best Answer: Hi,
Go for the regular width 156 Skate Banana with size 10 boots. The wide is made for size 12 boots and larger.

Hi,
I am looking at get either a Carbon Credit 2015 or Skate Banana 2014.
I am 5'10 weigh 142-145 lbs. Wear a size 11.5 Nitro Team boots. Am at beginner level and this will be my 1st board. Where I am there is more of slush/ice and if I am lucky some powder. Not the type you get in the northern hemisphere. Plan on mostly hitting the slopes.
Looking at the web, I may need to go on the wider size 153W if going short or maybe something like a 156 or 156W if going longer. Can you plz suggest a correct size?
A shopper on Oct 7, 2014
Best Answer: I would recommend the 153 wide Lib Tech Skate Banana for you.

I am looking for the best all mountain freestyle board that I can shed the park with butter, spin, and press all over the mountain; will grip down on hard pack and ice; as well as float through pow. What would you recommend between the skate banana, burton super hero, or burton process Flying V?
Ryan A on Mar 10, 2014
Best Answer: The skate banana is going to fit all of those. It is super flexy and floats really well on powder. You will love it.

im 6'1 and 150 pounds. i know that i need a wide board but im not sure about the length. any suggestions?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2014
Best Answer: My guess is you're still growing. I wouldn't go smaller than a 152, or higher than a 158. Depends on what kind of riding you do. A 155-56 would be ideal IMO. Check out the sizing charts. Add a little for carving, subtract a little for freestyle. Personal preference comes into play. Take into account where and how you ride.
