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 :wink:. Please reply if you know of such a board that could use a new home. Thanks!

Checkout this listing [not mine] http://rockies.craigslist.org/spo/2900081901.html

I purchased a solid 156 Euphoria demo board from Venture Snowboards via Ebay. After my wife has ridden it a couple of times, I will DIY Split

See http://www.ebay.com/sch/venturesnow/m.html?hash=item2ebc6105a9&item=200728970665&pt=Snowboarding&_trksid=p4340.l2562

Also this 156 Zephyr http://www.ebay.com/itm/120874537421?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649#ht_500wt_1194

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 info@chimerasnowboards.com if interested in that.
