  #2  Snowboarding Sizing Help  Posted 10/01/2019 @ 18:52
I am 6,1ft, 94kg, Size 10UK Boots and looking to buy a new 'all-mountain' snowboard,

I'm a decent snowboarder however have never done jumps, parks etc. I'm looking into buying an all mountain board rather than using the 160 powder board I use at the minute. I want to buy a smaller board so I can start going into parks and having a go at other stuff rather than just hunting for powder.

Is a 156 size snowboard too small for someone of my height and weight?

I'm looking at the Salomon Assassin 2019.

Hi George I would say simply yes. If you check the specs it says ideal rider weight and you're well over. Again as is often said, without riding it you don't really know. Perhaps look at other boards that ft in your weight that are smaller lengths.
