Gear Question


I am looking to buy the Rome crail...

Posted on


I am looking to buy the Rome crail but have a question about sizing.

I am pretty short and heavy which kinda throws out the 'between your nose and chin' thing I think.

I am 170cm, 5ft 6in and 90kg, 198 lbs.

Will the 153 Crail be too short?

I guess I'd be classed as a beginner. I don't want to rent again and want a board that I won't 'outgrow' too soon.

Any help or recomendations would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Dave,

Yeah, the "between your nose and chin" thing worked 15 years ago but sh!t has changed. You're height and weight make you a bit of a difficult size. I for one have always felt that weight played more into sizing of a board than height does. However, you are a beginner so a longer, more stable board, is best. I'd say your ideal size is anywhere from a 154cm-156cm. I think you will be fine on a 153cm though. We're only talking a few cm plus you're just learning. I'd get it at this sick deal and try it out. If it feels too small or you just aren't into snowboarding, you can always send it back with our lifetime guarantee.
