Never Summer Ripsaw 156 or 159
Looking into purchasing a new board, the Never Summer Ripsaw, just can't decide which size the 156 or 159. I prefer charging and carving, and also enjoy drops and jumping in the side country. i have size 10.5 us k2 t1 boots, i weigh 75 kg/165 lbs, and i am 183 cm/6 ft. i am also thinking of putting some burton genesis bindings on the board any other recomendations?

I'm getting a ripsaw also.

I emailed Never Summer for sizing help and they recommended a 153cm or 156cm.

I'm 5'8" 160lbs. size 9.5 boot.

So judging by their recommendation, I would say 156cm for you as we are about the same weight which is all that matters from what I hear.

This chart may help you too.

I guess I should read the chart before recommending to you.

Looks like the 159 would be best for your boot size and weight.

I planned to drop 5-10lbs before the season starts, so 156cm would be ideal for me.

I really have no clue what NS was thinking by recommending the 153cm to me with my weight and boot size.

I'd go with the 156cm then :signlol:

Based on your size, either would suit you. Based on what you've stated as your riding style preference, 159.

I rode a 156 for the day and loved it. I'm 6' 220lbs. It would be a toss up for me between the 156 or 159. I would probably go 159 as I can't shake the old school mentality that bigger is better.

159. You will thanks me on a powdery day. I have a ns heritage 159 that is very similar and I'm 175 Lb and I couldn't imagine being on anything smaller.
