    Snowboar, Skiing, Ice Skating
    Well, I just arrived last month to Vancouver, Canada and I've seen that winter sports are very popular. Where I come from we don't practice so much all these kind of sports and I would like to learn these sports, because I really like them. That's way I need some information about the next sports: ice skating, skiing and snowboard, because I want to buy the used instrumets for these sports.
    I am 16 years old, I weigh 53 kilos my height is 167 cm.
    1┬╗What size should be the snowboard?
    2┬╗What size should be the skis?
    3┬╗What size should be the ice skates?
    4┬╗What size should be the boots for snowboard and skiing?
    5┬╗If I buy snowboard boots, can I use them with the skis?
    6┬╗The ice skates must be bigger or smaller than the street shoes?

    PD: THe street shoes that I use are 8.5 US and are not small for me I can put inside 1 finger and a little of another.

    1┬╗What size should be the snowboard?
    2 ╗What size should be the skis? It often depends on your skill level, any good ski shop will ask you a few questions and offer their suggestion.
    3 ╗What size should be the ice skates? Like shoes you have to try them on. I've played hockey all my life and notice that ice skates sizes generally are set to almost one full size less than your shoe size (so if I wear a 9 shoe I have size 8 skates).
    4 ╗What size should be the boots for snowboard and skiing? Go to a shop that sells them and ask the staff.
    5 ╗If I buy snowboard boots, can I use them with the skis? Nope, they are two different types of boots made to match the bindings.
    6 ╗The ice skates must be bigger or smaller than the street shoes? See above.

    Good luck and have fun!
