How to choose the size of your snowboard?

Selecting the size of your snowboard is very important to be able to enjoy snowboarding. Luckily, it is not complicated... with a few recommendations. Follow the guide and identify the correct size snowboard!

 

to begin with 

Here are some pointers to be aware of before selecting the size of your snowboard.

 

  1. The size of a snowboard is expressed in cm (for example, where 155 features on a snowboard (or sometimes just 55)), the size of the snowboard is 155 cm.
  2. Give or take 3 to 4 cm, you cannot go too wrong when selecting your snowboard.
  3. The higher your level, the more height you can add to your board (1 to 2 cm per level).
  4. If you are relatively heavy for your size, you may choose a slightly larger board and/or a higher level board, as they are often more rigid.

Hold your board vertically in front of you, it should be at the height of between your shoulder and chin.
