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.

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?
