Additional advice for choosing the right snowboard for you

Your height is the most important when choosing the right snowboard for you [use our Snowboard Length Calculator above], but there also other important factors you need to consider.

Ability Level

If you are a beginner, you should consider shorter snowboard [check minimum recommended length for your height in our Snowboard Length Calculator].

Your Weight

If you are above average weight, you should consider longer snowboard [check maximum recommended length for your height in our Snowboard Length Calculator].

Terrain

For riding freestyle or in snowboard park, you should consider shorter snowboard [check minimum recommended length for your height in our Snowboard Length Calculator]

For riding in powder or freeride, you should consider longer snowboard  [check maximum recommended length for your height in our Snowboard Length Calculator].

Beginners or if you are not sure what terrain you will ride most, pick all-mountain snowboard. It is used by a majority of snowboarders and offers the biggest versatility.

Flex

Snowboard flex ratings are not standardized between manufacturers, so keep that in mind when comparing boards from different brands.

Softer Flex Snowboards are easier to turn. Softer Flex Snowboards are better for beginners, park riders and riders with lower weight.

Stiffer Flex Snowboards are better for high-speed riders and riders with heavier weight.

Width

Your snowboard boot should be 1 or 2 cm longer than the width of your snowboard.
