|| who's to say that guy doesnt have skills? he is very well an amazing rider even to attempt the chimney at the squaw palisades. Luck just had it he stuck on the takeoff, pretty ballsy to even attempt it. anyhow, here's a shot of a bunch of skiers at those same palacades to give you a good grasp of how big they are.[tube]http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=21645016[/tube]

||Hey Cole,it looks like you will be looking into the 'all mountain' category of snowboards, for your size you would optimally look for a board in the size range of 152-155. A bigger board will do better in powder, where a smaller board will wdo better in the park.

||So I just spoke with our warranty department about this.. She said they were having issues viewing the pics that were sent. I guess there was confusion between the two parties and the shipping. However, Grunge you should be receiving an email soon from our warranty department that will contain some info you will hopefully like. As far as future international warranties of Sierra Brand boards we have been able to update to this: You will need to send in ample quality images of the damage to your snowboard, as well as shots of the rest of the board. We need to be able to make a fully educated decision on whether or not it is mfg warranty-able or not. IF it is covered under warranty, we won't require you to ship the broke board back, and we will make you a coupon for the new board.

||You got it, your best bet is to try some on in person, whether you buy them from that location is up to you because you may be able to find the same boots cheaper online. What you will look for in a fit:You want your boot to fit snug, this means that when you put the boot on, your toes should be touching the front of the boots. Once you lace them up tightly (inner laces and outer) you will want to flex the boots (putting pressure on your shins to the front of the boot like you would when your riding) at this point, your toes should come off the front slightly. They may seem a little small in comparison to your street shoes but this is okay. You want your foot to have as little movement inside the boot as possible. Too much room in your boot will cause more pain than a boot that fits too small. And keep in mind that a new boot is the smallest its ever going to fit, as it breaks in, you will get more room. Hope this helps!

||At your size, you should probably be on a 140 at the smallest, you should look into the womens feelgood which is the same as the custom

||I am really unsure on this one, maybe ask this question in the ask other riders section. From what i have heard you would just use your normal snowboard... but i could be wrong

||you should probably be riding a 158-162 depending on your riding style. You will also need a 'wide' board so you dont get toe drag. the waist width should be at least 260mm

||thank you for the heads up! very appreciated

||at your size you can ride either one of them, the 56 will give you better speed stability, but the 52 will be a bit more nimble in the park

||The best to ride with is the GoPro, most people are using it now either on a helmet attachment or mounted on a ski pole so you can film yourself and your friends..

||I'd put some C02's on it, they are a very responsive binding that doesnt give up much comfort http://www.trusnow.com/Burton-CO2-Snowboard-Bindings.asp
