I started snowboarding last season, and am looking for a beginner-level snowboard. I'm not really short (5'4") but am otherwise little (100lbs, size 5 feet).
I was told that my rental snowboards are too wide for my feet -- my toes and heel don't reach the edges of the board. This means that I have to shift my weight really far forward to get onto my toe side.
From what I understand, I want a half inch of overhang on each side, which means a 23cm waist.
Am I getting the right advice? Any recommendations for a brand/model that would fit me? I am not above using a kids' snowboard.
Binding suggestions will also be gratefully accepted (I have Salomon Fusion boots).
In addition, does anyone have any experience with Siren
snowboards? I think they're pretty but can't find any specs on them online.
