I have the oppurtunity to get a Killer Loop snowboard from a friend for cheap. Its brand new and this will only be my third time snowboarding but im looking to stick with it as a sport. I know Ill still need bindings and boots but I want to make sure this board is at least decent before I spend any more money. I havent found any information on this company or the snowboards online and was hoping I could get some help on the quality of the boards. How much do you guys think the boards are worth? and do you guys think that a 149 cm would fit me (im a 5’8” 135 pounds male)? Thanks a lot everyone
Agreed that 149 is too small. My nephew is 5’4″ 123 lbs, and he rides a 147 like it’s nothing. Not saying you couldn’t ride a 149 – you could do it, but a slightly longer one would give you more stability on steeper terrain. A 149 would probably hold you back.
As for Killer Loop – aren’t they a sunglasses company??? I never heard of them making boards. And I wouldn’t be surprised if some other cheap-board company is making them and slapping a Killer Loop logo on ’em, in a partnership with Killer Loop, just to use the marketability of the Killer Loop name in another arena.
For both those reasons, I would look elsewhere. Get a used board on ebay if you’re worried about cost. Most of them go for below half of the original retail price and there’s so many that you should easily be able to find a board that matches your height and weight. Get used bindings, too, and spend some money on new boots.

Killer Loop was a snowboard and eventually skateboard and surf manufacturer. Their sunglasses were widely distributed in US but snowboard distribution was limited to non-existent. US boards were mainly last seasons freestyle/freeride closeouts. Quality was good/very good. I have a killer Killer Loop alpine carving/race board from mid 2000
Well first off a 149 is way to small for you dude im 5’2″ and 110 lbs and thts my size board. they go by weight you would prolly need a 154ish. And tht brand is not even known by neone tht I have spoken to. and according to my research is inspired by teens from what they have seen from the pros. but they have no website yet either. I wouldt trust it.
