Forums Splitboard Talk Forum Women’s Waist Width Questions Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) Author Posts April 18, 2020 at 4:01 pm #849192 Caitlin 2 Posts Hey all, Slowly gathering gear, practice and knowledge to feel confident in the backcountry. I am an intermediate/advanced rider, 5’6” and 120 lbs, shoe size 7.5. I normally ride a 148 Never Summer. Inquiring about a 149 women’s Weston Splitboard. It has a waist width of 25 cm, and am wondering if that is too big of a jump for a comfortable ride? My gear will add weight but wondering if responsive turns will be challenging. Thanks!!
