    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!!

    hey there,
    I have done a bit of fitting of boards for my wife and daughters, if you are a womens 7.5, being a 24.5cm foot, a 25 cm wide board will make your feet tired fast when riding on firm surfaces or long toe side traverses on exit roads etc. You could get a way with that width if you rode generally only ride in good powder (Utah or interior BC) type nice and soft conditions; but I’d recommend a board right at 24cm (or a bit less) for a women’s 7.5 for more comfortable/powerful edging and more stability in rough snow.
