Size Charts for Kids Snowboards
By Steve Kopitz
How to select the correct snowboard based on rider size and abilities.
Snowboards are sized based on the rider's weight. Height plays a very minimal role and only factors in when a board cannot support the rider's stance (either very wide or very narrow). The general rule of thumb is to size snowboards according to the manufacturer's provided weight range for each size (if available). You can size down one size for more control, but the trade-off will be some stability. In regards to children's snowboards it is not a good idea to size up because many children aren't strong enough to flex a larger snowboard and will find the larger snowboard difficult to control.
If your child weighs more than 120 pounds they will need an adult snowboard. For help with sizing of adult snowboards, please use this Snowboard Size Chart.
