big.

as a general rule of thumb it should come to between your upper chest and chin.

DDedepends on the terrain u generally ride and your ability

 

As a rule of thumb, most people ride boards thar are way too big for them, which limits their overall ability

 

Personally I'm 5'9 and I ride a 154

 

My roommate who I do all my riding with is 6'2 and rides a 156

 

We ride mostly groomers and park...with the occasional powder dip...if your worried about floating pow, then look into alternative camber.

 

I spent the first 6 years riding a directional 159 regular camber board and needless to say the day I hopped on a shorter flat kick cambered board I felt like I was 25% more comfortable jumping and throwing my board around.than before.

just watched the art of flight over night. made me go out and do some of my checks on my rock board with only a foot of snow. fucking love when a movie makes you snowboard when there's still water-bars, boulders and streams running throughout the mountain.

 

props for the recommendation. I got an hd copy on demonoid.

Drinking on the lift/blazing in the trees.

 

I say give it a go.

 

For the cost to rent everything you need for a weekend, you're better off just buying gear and selling it if you decide snowboarding isn't for you. It may be different other places, but here rentals are really over priced.
