In this clip we are going to go over how to determine the size of a snowboard. O'kay folks not rocket science here, tip to tail is measured in centimeters. Most boards either have it marked on the top sheet, the specific length of the board. If they do not have it on the top sheet it will be on the sticker on the back. The next thing is the waist, the waist is measured in millimeters and that is what best suits your specific shoe size to the width of the board. Your weight determines the length from tip to tail what best suits you again and your style. Now if you are coming across a second hand board, maybe a board from a demo program and you don't have the specifics of what size the board is, if you have a tape measure, again the waist is going to be measured in millimeters, tip to tail is going to be measured in centimeters, whether it is 153 or 181 or 134 and again the length of the board is measured by the weight and the waist in millimeters determines the best shoe size that fits that board. So bottom line guys when it comes to snowboards we're in the metric system so when you hear somebody talking about they ride a 53, a 155, 158, a 181 they're talking about tip to tail in centimeters the length of their board and when somebody is talking about their waist width is a 255 that best suits a size 10. If they're in a 27, best suits a size 13.
