Height and weight are both important in choosing the correct size snowboard for kids, but as a general rule, kid’s boards should hit somewhere between their chin and chest, but like adult boards, the most suitable length depends on a few other factors.
Our stores have a wide range of kid’s snowboard equipment so if in doubt, visit us in store and get expert advice from our knowledgeable staff.
Using the chart below:
- Measure your child’s height and weight.
- Look at their height on the chart below.
- If they fall between two heights listed, look at their weight. If they are light for their height they’ll ride better with a shorter snowboard, if they are heavy for their height go for a longer board.
- This is only a rough guide and where possible, speak to an expert if you’re not sure as there could be beneficial reasons to size up or down.
Look towards the snowboard length column for the ideal board length.
