1/GETTING STARTED

Here are a few things you should know before choosing your snowboard size:

1 - Snowboard size is given in cm (for example, where it states 155 on a snowboard (or sometimes just 55), it means that its size is 155 cm).

2 - You won't go wrong with your snowboard choice if it’s within 3 or 4 cm.

3 - The higher your level, the more centimetres you can add to your board (1 to 2 cm per level).

4 - Take into account both your height and your weight. If you are relatively heavy for your height then go for a slightly bigger and/or a higher level board as they are often more rigid.

5- You must choose the snowboard length as well as the width """".

FOR FREESTYLE USE

You can go for a fairly short board, a drop of 20 to 25 cm less than your height.
(For example, a person who is 1.74 m tall should choose a board between 154 and 149 cm in length)

Hold your board upright in front of you and it should reach somewhere between your shoulder and chin.

- A smaller board makes rotations and tricks easier.
- A bigger board will be more stable at high speed and when landing jumps.

For All Mountain and Freeride use

For All Mountain and Freeride use, you can opt for a board with a 15 to 20 cm drop.
(For example, a person who is 1.74 m tall should choose a board between 159 and 154 cm in length).

Hold your board upright in front of you and it should reach somewhere between your shoulder (or neck base) and chin.

- Choosing a shorter board makes riding easier. This is also advisable for those who are light for their height.
- A bigger board will be more stable at high speed.

Wide or not? 

"Snowboard width" is the broadness of the board. This is critical to prevent trailing toes and heels when linking a turn (especially a frontside turn).

When the snowboard width is correctly sized, the snowboard boots hang slightly over the snowboard edges but not to the point of hitting the snow when the board is on the edge.
