Another question! Sorry guys Im new in the board-world!
This board comes in 153cm, 157cm and 161 cm and the sizing chart says that a board thats 161cm fits a rider thats 73 kg but I weigh 84 kg approx. Would it be totally stupid to buy the 161cm then?

Yeah I know imma noob, but id rather be a noob that asks stupid questions than waste my money and ruin my time in the snow! :D

Best regards! Oliver -DK

Nah depends on what your height is and riding preference, if your gonna be hitting the park a smaller board is better for control and a larger board for cruisin down the mountian whats your height? thats a big factor

A snowboard has no idea how tall you are, that is completely irrelevant. 84kg is what, about 190 pounds? You would be fine on a 161. It also depends on the kind of riding your gonna do too. For example: I weigh 215 pounds and ride a 158, but it's on the ice coast, small hills(no vert), and half park half freeride.
