Gear Question

Posted on

I am a new snowboarder, and the Burton board guide told me that the Joystick is the one for me. I am 6' and about 190lbs. I'm going to be all over the mountain and in the park...length suggestion? and I'm a size 11...do I need the wide version?

haha, awesome choice.

Your my dimensions almost to a "T" -- I'm 6'0" 195 lbs.

Go with the 157 or 159 Wide...

The 157 is a mid-wide waist so you will be fine on foot size. And the wide 159 is not super-wide (basically either one will work awesome)

I'd look at it this way: If you plan on riding a lot of bigger mountain/ powder style stuff go larger... More Park, Pipe, Jibbing go with the smaller.

Keep in mind you can size down a bit riding a rocker.

AND ON TOP OF THAT, THIS BOARD IS AMAZING!!!
