Q:
"I am 6'6" and weigh 250. I am a very aggressive, expert rider and have broken boards before because of my weight. What size do you recommend?"

Question by Erik on 2/14/2012 - 1:48 pm
A:
"Sometimes breaking boards is just the nature of the sport, especially if you are an aggressive rider. If you are wanting to hit up the parks, then you'll want to stay in the size range of about 165. Check out the Ride Antic Wide. For all mountain, you may need to go even bigger. Check out the Lib Tech Skunk Ape C2 BTX Wide snowboard!"

Question by Daryl on 4/3/2012 - 8:54 am
A:
"Your recommended board size is about 163 so the 162 would work perfectly for you. Your boot size is another reason why this board would be a good choice for you. With the lightweight technology and the amazing pop this board delivers I'd say you've found a winner!"

Question by Sancte on 4/4/2012 - 11:22 am
A:
"Your recommended board size is around 157. This is a wide board so the sizing will work for you and it has a soft flex of 3 which is great for beginners as well. This board is on the progressing side of a beginner so it will work well for you if you have any other previous experience with balance such as skating or surfing. "

Question by Haydn on 7/27/2012 - 7:23 pm
A:
"For your boot size, I would definitely try a mid-wide or wide board. The rule of thumb is that you want your board to be about chin height. I would suggest a 158-160. The 155 is definitely too short, even for a beginner. "

A:
"For your size, I would recommend something around 166. This board is aimed more for beginners. For an intermediate looking to advance I would recommend a board with a flex around 5. You will definitely need a wide board to accommodate your boot size. "

"Hello, I've only been boarding twice (both times using rentals) and I am looking to buy a board to grow to use and get better with! I'm 6'11" weighing 172 lbs and size 12 boots. I have no idea what size board to go with however, nor if a wide or regular is a better fit. Please help!

Question by Felix on 12/29/2012 - 9:30 am
A:
"The size of the snowboard is a perfect fit for you! you want to get a 158 size board that is wide. The only exception I have is that the board has a traditional camber profile on it. It is a more difficult board to learn on and is more for advanced riders. I would suggest to get a board with a rocker and camber profile like the Burton Custom Flying V-Rocker Wide Snowboard. The rocker and camber profile on the snowboard will make it easier for you to learn on and you will have a more enjoyable time on the slopes. "
