Snowboard size guide
What length and width of snowboard should you choose?
- Length is determined by your preference for terrain and your height. As a rule, your snowboard should go to somewhere between the shoulder and the center of your head. In general, longer boards than that are recommended for backcountry/off-piste, whereas shorter boards are suitable for freestyle performances. A board in between is versatile and suitable for all mountain riding.
For beginners and kids, it is normally recommended to choose a bit shorter board to achieve an easy and fun experience on your snowboard.
Width is mainly distinguished between standard and wide. Wide boards are recommended for shoe size US 10 and over. As an exception, this does not count for the junior wide boards.
