My friend wants to get a new snowboard this winter and he wants to get the Neverummer SL in white, but in a 147. He has fell in love with this board, but he’s only 5ft, 4in and wants a board around his chin. They don't offer that size which is frustrating for him, because a 151 is the smallest size that comes with the SL. Is there any way that he can custom order one from them? He doesn’t care if it will cost extra or how long it takes because he really wants this board.
Hm...well I don't know if ns does custom orders, but you shouldn't do sizes by height, but by weight and what way he rides (freestyle, freeride, etc.)...so in all reality at 5' 4" depending on what I said before 151 could be the size for him.
yeah, the 90% rule is not set in stone... but as i understand he wants to freestyle, as NS SL is more freestyle oriented board, so that could be the problem. But NS have another good freestyle board Evo in 148, also avalible in white. Let him check out Evo and maybe he will like it!
height is basically irrelevent unless you're like 6'8 110 llbs or 5' 200 lbs... height determines stance width, weight and riding style determines length. There's a definite difference between the EVO and the SL... the EVO is really a park board, the SL is an all-mountain board. They're both excellent but serve different purposes
