Snowboards are built with three variables in mind.
For example, if you weigh between 130-170 pounds and your foot size smaller than 24.5 (mondopoint measurement), you should ride a board between 140-150cm long, 23-24cm wide, and with a sidecut of 750-850cm.
These measurements are based on a freeride or freestyle boarder on higher slopes on big mountains. If you are riding smaller mountains and lower slopes, the length measurements and sidecut measurements will be smaller.
