Are there any recommendations? If this helps I'm a 120lb female and I'm 5'7" tall. My shoe size is 9 1/2 o: is there any differences between a male and female snowboard?
Awesome! Thank you @sanityscout & @mpoblete! I'm thinking of going for an all purpose board since I'm starting out. Now I just have to do some searching around for a board! so excited(:
Hi @EmilySalzsieder! There are some snowboards geared toward women in style, but I think the only difference really is size (maybe an expert will chip in to confirm). I have had a Burton Charger 149 or 147 (I forget right now) for years, but I am shorter than you :) I think the biggest issues to consider are your height and stance. Also, what type of riding you prefer to do - since there are all-purpose boards that are versatile like mine but also ones geared for racing straight down, etc. They are shaped differently. My husband loves his Burton Custom.
You go by height and weight usually.
