Snowboard Size Chart

In essence, a snowboard will react to two things i.e. the snow beneath it and the weight and feet or its rider above it.

With this in mind, snowboards are built with variances in its shape which depends on the terrain that it will be used on, its width which will depend on the rider's foot size and its length and flex which depends on the weight of the rider.

The size chart below lists the recommended board length, width and sidecut based on terrain, riding style and the weight and foot size of the rider.

By selecting a board size based on your vital statistics and riding preferences you can find one which matches your needs as closely as possible.

For the size charts below, weight is measured in lbs where 1lb = 0.4536kg, foot size uses mondopoint and board dimensions are in cm.
