Hey, as I'm new to the sport, and my first board was a Jobe Fathom 141, Ive soon out grown it, and im looking into a new board for the summer, but as all boards are different lengths, i wondered if anyone could inform me as to how each length works, and whats suitable, does it go of height and weight etc... thanks

Length of the board (size) is determined mainly by your weight. Height is a factor but weight is more important to start. Each board has a weight rating. You can check the boards out under the boards section above. What is you weight & height?

Height: 6'3 or 190.5cm
Weight: 13 to 14st or 182pounds to 196pounds

After all this time, I stumbled across a site that had this info on, typical after seeking help:

Rider Weight Board Length
Up to 90lbs 119 - 122cm
Up to 100lbs 121 - 124cm
Up to 110lbs 122 - 126cm
Up to 130lbs 128 - 132cm
Up to 150lbs 131 - 136cm
Up to 170lbs 134 - 140cm
Up to 190lbs 135 - 142cm
Up to 200lbs 138 - 144xm
200lbs + 140cm +

I'd go with a 140-142in...but thats just my opinion. The best thing you can do is ride a friends board or demo them to find out what suits you the best!

That is a good standard chart to go by. When you narrow down your board choices I would think with your weight and height (your height will affect your decision because you are tall) you will be looking at 140cm boards and up.
