board buying advice, as stated early. please don't be one of those kids who buys all the fresh new shit but is tumbling down the hill all frosty we truly hate those kids
height wise you want to pick a board that is between your chin and your nose. not only is length important, width is as well. Width in snowboard terms is called 'waist' you'll want to also look at the size of your feet which will tell you the size of your boot which also determines the size of your bindings as well as the width of your board.
