    You do not need a wide for size 10.5 boots, and I would recommend the 156…159 if you’re looking to go extra fast or ride a lot of powder!

  • Dohlo

    Thank you so much! My boot is an US 11 sorry! Can i go the normal 156?
    Thank you!

  • Igor Ionov

    hello! please tell me what size should I choose when and height 175 weight 55kg. 150 or 153?

  • DATAQUADRA

    Please help me with the new corretc size:
    183cm, 85KG, EU 44 / US 10.5
    I have the GNU Carbon Credit BTX 156W (MY2011) and it seems to be too small for me…
    My equipment is Drake SuperSport bindings and Northwave Decade SL Boots
    Always All mountain & Freeride, biginner in the park.
    I’m thinking about 162W
    Many thanks!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Igor,
    I think that the 153 or the 156 would be good options for you, but I would not recommend the 150 for someone your size.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    You should be fine with a standard width board and size 11 boots, especially if your stance is angled.
    But to be certain, I would recommend bringing your boots into your local shop and checking it out in person.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    With size 10.5 boots you don’t need a wide board, but I think the 162 sounds like the best size for you!

  • Ed

    Hi there. I’m hoping you could help me with sizing. I’m 220 lbs, 5′ 10″ and an 11 US boot. I’m really interested in the Carbon Credit. Thanks!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    I think you will love this board in the 159!

  • Ed

    That’s awesome! It’s the one that comes in blue and that’s exactly the color I wanted! Thanks!

  • Van

    I’m a newbie and someone recommend the Carbon Credit. I’m 6″1 215 with size 12 feet. I do like maneuverability for freestyle riding! What size board do I need?

  • Archer

    Hi!

    Please help me to choose the size of the board for beginner.

    Hight – 179 cm, weight – 92 kg, boots – EU 42.

    Thank you so much!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    I think 156 is a good size to learn on, but if you’ve already got the basics down you may want to go with the 159 instead.
    Bigger boards will be a little bit more challenging to maneuver, but they will feel more stable at higher speeds.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hey Van,
    The Carbon Credit is a great option for beginners looking to progress!
    I think the 162W would be the most suitable size, but if you’re looking for something really maneuverable you could definitely size down to the 159W. I’m not sure I would recommend going too much smaller than that, though.

  • Nicholas Wagner

    Hello thanks for your help. Im 150 LBS and 5 9″ foot size 8 Mens. What size board do you sugest.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    156 will be a good, versatile length to take anywhere.
    153 will be good if you want to spend a lot of time jibbing in the park.

  • Oscar

    So I have this board from last year, and was wondering if the metal gnuru would be a good next step up?
    Or do you recommend something else? Ps will also use this on tv appearances

  • Marco Antonio Reynaga

    How does the carbon credit compare against the banana magic? I’m on the fence of getting either one?

  • STEM

    I was wondering what size I should go with, I am 166cm, and 70 kg in weight.
    should I go with 153 cm for all Around ??

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Marco,
    The Banana Magic is definitely a higher end board–it has Horsepower construction, which means no basalt and all fiberglass. The flex will be more uniform from tip to tail than the carbon credit, and because it has !BTX! base contours, it will also feel more aggressive and snappy than the Carbon Credit. Horsepower construction will also feel more lively for longer than boards built with fiberglass.

    The Carbon Credit is more of a loose, forgiving and playful board–it is our more entry-level model, so lots of beginners choose it, but more advanced riders can have a blast on it as well.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Oscar,
    The Metal Gnuru will definitely be a nice step up from the Carbon Credit, having some mild, elliptical camber underfoot will make the board feel more powerful, aggressive, and stable–but it will still be super easy to ride anywhere on the mountain!

    If you wanted something even more aggressive, you could check out the Riders Choice.

  • Marco Antonio Reynaga

    I currently have a 153 CC, what size would you recommend for the banana magic. I’m 5″8 146lbs, I RIDE Freestyle And Hitting a lot of natural features. The CC has been an amazing board that has taken my riding to the next level, is there another board you would recommend as well?

  • Marco Antonio Reynaga

    Sorry! I meant free ride!

  • Jerry

    Hi,
    Our 12 year old son needs a new board. Hearing great things at the local shops about the Gnu’s but having a difficult time selecting the best size for him. He’s currently riding on a Burton Chopper (youth board) that’s about 130cm but he’s definitely outgrown it. He’s 5’0″ tall but only 90 pounds. Shoe size mens 8 (US). Spends more than 50% of his time on terrain park but still enjoys the long runs so we want something good for terrain parks but he can also enjoy if he just wants to board with his skiing family/friends. We didn’t have his exact height and weight checked so brought home a Gnu Gateway 149 from local REI last night, but after measuring him I think that’s going to be way too big. Considering the Carbon Credit. They have a 147 in stock at a local store. Looks like the smart pickle might be another option. Trying to decide if a 143 or 147 would work best for him. Appreciate any guidance! Thank you!!!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Either the 150 or 153 will be killer for you.
    Go smaller if you spend a lot of time in the park or want something super manueverable.
    Go bigger if you want something more stable and study.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    Hi Jerry,
    Thanks for reaching out to us and all of the information–it makes it A LOT easier to recommend a board.
    The 149 sounds like it will be on the big side for your son and the 147 will feel pretty big as well, but I don’t think he will have any issues controlling and maneuvering it…with that said, I think the 147 in either the Smart Pickle or Carbon Credit will be the best option!

    I think the 143 will be a really awesome board for him right now, but its getting towards the end of the season and if he grows before next winter he might outgrow it! The 147 will challenge him a bit this season, but I think it will help progress his riding a lot, and still be a board that he can ride and grow on (both in height and ability) for years to come!

    I would also recommend checking out the Lib Tech Box Scratcher; we make Lib boards in the same factory using a lot of the same technology as Gnu’s–it’s kind of a step up from the Carbon Credit, but without the Pickle Tech of the Smart Pickle.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ Gnu

    I think you can stay in the 152-155 range for a new board!
    The Banana Magic is definitely a great option, but you could also check out some boards with C2 base contours–the camber underfoot will feel more powerful and aggressive than the CC or Banana Magic.

    Hell yeah! Thanks for all The info!

  • Zachary Siegel

    Hi, I am trying to find a Great snowboard for doing everything. I am 63 inches and 95 lbs. with a size 8 boot. I thought that the 143 carbon credit would be a good choice but I was not sure if I would be able to fit a Medium Burton Binding on it because the waist width is only 24. Could you help me out? THANKS.
