Snowboard Size

WIDTH -

The width of the middle of your board you choose is governed by your personal boot size. Your heel and toe should sit just slightly over the edge of the board increasing pressure allowing you to apply leverage to the board for turning and carving.

 

Rider Weight

This is so important, please call us (01273 411141)  for expert advice if you're new to snowboarding.  If your board is too short for your weight you will put far too much pressure on it causing problems with controlling and turning the board. A board that is too long for your weight then will feel heavy and difficult to turn.
