For any snowboarder there isn't one correct length. By starting with rider weight, then considering rider ability, riding style, and where you will be riding you can generate the best range of sizes. While many people think about sizing on height it has very little impact on the correct length snowboard. Please use the following charts to dial in the correct size range for your needs.

Once a base length is determined two modifications need to be considered.
|Aggressive||plus 2 cm|
*Snowboarding style is not determined by skill range. Many athletic beginners may choose aggressive if they are prefer to ride fast but are still learning technique. Advanced snowboarders may choose cautious if they prefer to ride at lower speeds and are primarily concerned about control.
|All Mountain||plus 2 cm|
|All Mountain/Powder||plus 4 cm|
|Freestyle||minus 2 cm|
Once a final length is determined any snowboard within 2cm longer or shorter is the ideal range for that snowboarder. If a final length is 158cm, the snowboards from 156 to 160cm are in the ideal range. If two lengths of a particular board fall into the ideal range choose the shorter board for more maneuverability or the longer length for more stability at speed.
