I just bought a NS infinity for the GF.

I bought it for her for Christmas and it's her first board. So buying the right size was a little difficult. And of course, stupid me, doesn't see the evo sizing chart until today.

I got her the 145cm. The chart says 80-130 pounds. And she weighs 130lbs.

It sits literally right beneath her chin. Is that cutting it too close? She's not the type to gain weight. The 147cm is 80-140lbs. Should I just return it for a larger size? I bet she'd like it to be a playful fun board, but I just don't want it to be really unstable at higher speeds.

Thanks for any insight.

I got my girl the 147 and she is 125-130lbs. She could easily ride the 145 but I went 147 because she's a skilled rider and doesn't ride much park and I think the 147 would be a little more stable at speed and a little more effective edge on ice and more board for powder when we go west.

If she is just learning the 145 will be just fine. Its really up to you.

145 is a fine size if she is a beginner. It is also good depending on how she rides, in the end it is two cm's it won't change the world

That seems about right, I wouldn't be worried about it!
Good man, good man.

Ignore the Evo sizing charts for Never Summer as they don't actually publish "official" weight charts on their website or boards. The reason they don't is sizing is dependent on weight, riding preference (freeride or park), preferred flex, where you ride, etc., amongst other variables. If you're worried about it, contact Never Summer directly (via phone or email) with her specs and riding preference instead of depending on random strangers on a message board.

I weigh 120 to 130 w/ gear on and usually ride 144-147. I prefer to "ride shorter" bc I feel I have better control and unless I am going ham on like a steep straightlining the stability will not feel that much diff from a longer board. Your girl will love that board.
