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 UK 9 and over. As an exception, this does not count for the junior wide boards.
