    "Based on the height, he could probably do a 140 to a 148cm board. If he is a beginner, go with the lower end of that, and the higher end would be if he has some experience."

    "There are a couple of different factors that determine the size of the board that you need. Using the generic estimates I would recommend a size 160. But that could vary depending on your experience and riding style. "

    "This board has a pretty soft flex so this will be easy to control the board but its really responsive so you can definitely have fun with it. This is an all mountain board that you can take and explore everywhere which is great for a beginner rider."

    Question by Henry on 3/30/2012 - 5:53 pm
    "A flex rating tells you how bendable the board is. As a beginner, you are good to go with this board which has a flex of 4. This means that it is softer so it's going to be easier to maneuver. You can also check out our selection of Freestyle snowboards which are good choices for beginners."

    Great for everything but rails   Rated: 4/5

    I own a Recon 158 and think it's a great board. I'm 5'11 and about 185. I've owned mine for 3 seasons now and am happy to say it's held up to a lot of abuse. The things I like about the Recon is that it's very durable, does great on boxes, is sweet for carving (great sidecut and turn initiation), handles ice/crud snow admirably, and has a good deal of pop. It's kinda stiff out of the box, but breaks in after some hard riding. It's also a slightly wider board, so it can accommodate bigger feet without any drag. The base could be faster, but it's the only extruded base I've tried. I've had an easier time pressing with other boards, and it doesn't seem to like rails. Other boards feel steadier and more locked in on a rail. However, as a progression board, I think it's great. Also riding switch feels really natural on this board. Overall I would recommend this to friends (many have borrowed mine). Not too expensive and really sturdy. Great on the mountain, great with Jumps, great with boxes, ok with presses, meh with rails.
