my rider guide says to go with 160 board. I am 5'11" and 190lbs with a 11.5 shoe size. I want the Lib Teck Banana Magic. Should I go with the 162 or 158 that you have instock?
There are a lot of factors into sizing a snowboard, it's not just weight. However, I would say given the information provided the 158 would be a great size. It will have plenty of length for the steeps and deeps but will still be fun for gettin' jibby with it or jumpin off of stuff.
For reference: I'm 6' 165lbs and I ride a 156cm for my all-mountain board at Snowbird.
