I'm 5'3" and am hoping to access the backcountry with ease. I'm looking for a splitboard around the 149-154cm range, preferably with rocker in the nose. I've looked everywhere. There have got to be some smaller boards out there! Or maybe they are just too busy being ridden . Please reply if you know of such a board that could use a new home. Thanks!

My wife is 5'4" & rides her venture storm 152X24" very well. It also has the closest binding inserts that I could find. In fact they are as close as they can be for her Karacorma bindings with her stance of 2 degrees back & 30 degrees foward at 120 lbs dressed to ride she could use a 148 version but all the splitboards I could find in that size still had very wide inserts
h squared7: Note that the Chimera product line has some boards in the range you mention. There's a 150cm Unicorn Chaser that has rockered nose, is built narrower for smaller boot size, and has insert spacing that reflects a smaller rider's stance. Not sure if it's up on the website, but I know it's available. You could drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in that.
