What board etc. for new rider


Recommended Posts

Hi there new guy here.

Hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

I've read the FAQ's and they've been great help.

I am thinking of getting an alpine board next season because that's basically all I do is carve.

Wondering if someone could tell me what size board I should get. Speed isn't so much a big deal for me as carving ability and quickness. I'm 220lbs, and fairly aggresive rider, and somewhere between a Intermediate/advanced rider on my regular board.

Also are there any shops in Southren Ontario where you can demo or rent boards?

Anyways thanks, and hello!

So what size board would I want to try out?

what are you riding now? Think about staying within about5-10cm of the board you are used to riding. I'm about your size and prefer boards in the low to mid 170's, but it also depends on where you ride - big wide open western slopes I'd go longer. smaller hills or tighter eastern style mountains I'd go a lottle shorter.
