A few questions for snowboarding sizes, and types of boards!!?
Question:hey, i went snowboaring today, and it was insane, within a few hrs i was at the dimonds going down slowley but not falling. I want a board not expensive but i need some help first. i need the type, becuase there are like freestyle and etc...
I used i think a 155, but not sure
anything will be helpfull
I have a 159cm board but I am planning to get a new board that is 163cm. 159cm is a good size for freestyle (hitting up the terrain park for jumps and rails and jibbing), 162cm is a good size for all riding (freestyle/freeride), then a little longer one for freeride (mountain riding in powder snow).
So it depends on what kind of riding you would like to do. 155 sounds good for an all riding board at your weight. If you have big feet like me your gonna need check out wide boards too.
Freeriding boards should be longer and a bit stiffer so you can be stable while going fast and carving down the slope. Freestyle boards are made I believe with a little more flex and is shorter. For both riding just get something in between.
Are you actually connecting your turns on the black diamonds?
if you have around 600 just for the board not including bindings and boots id say get an option freeplus and what shoe size are you?
ps sorry about always using x instead of ex its just faster
