Hello everyone, glad i have found this site :D Already read a lot of stuff about splits here. To be honest I learned about splits only about month ago=) and i wanna buy One now. I think Im not gonna ask questions like what split is better and what should i buy,but i want to ask about the length of split for me. My height is 187 cm, weight 80 kg and foot size is 12.5(US). Sorry for Height in cm and Weight in kg but I dont know how to convert it and my foot size on the shoe label(easy to find)=)=) And sorry for my language, not very good at English.

It's a matter of preference, there will be a 20 cm difference in what some people of your weight and height ride. What board do you ride now? Does that feel big enough in powder? Do you ride cambered or rockered boards?

OK, can you tell us where you live/ride How long have you been snowboarding ? Are there any large resorts near that you can demo different solid boards? That will tell you what type of board you like to ride as far as length
What type of terrain do you want to ride? Does the ara you ride in get deep powder, some dustings or is it hardpack with spring corn ?

We can help, just need a bit more information

If you know a lot of people who want to ride good quality snowboards, boots and bindings and you live in Russia you may be missing out on a big opportunity. Open a snowboard shop, study your terrain, find a heli pilot get a couple of huts built and start your own snow vacation biz in Russia. you would get tons of customers from the US and Europe

No resorts near to my place ,so i can not demo boards. right now im in finland and closest resort to me is Ruka and Pyha. Im riding here right now. I dont know if i can post a webpage adress of that resort?

How is high speed a problem? NS are pretty damp stable boards from what i've heard. Just point it.
