Never summer bord help?

I have heard so much about the Never summer boards that i am dying to buy one this year.. I cant decide between the slr-the premier f1-r or the heritage? I am 57yrs old 5-10 and wiegh 235 I mainly board on the east coast. Im pretty decent i love cruising the mountain ,small jumps and a occasional rail or two. I like spinning on the tip and tail also. Any sugestions on which would be best.. I had a custom x then a libtech and back to a custom x Thanks for any help i can get

As there is no real "big mountain" riding in the East, I would hesitate on the Heritage and Premier. Moreover, if you like to hit the occasional rail, and do some butters, than it seems like an "all-mountain" is what you should be looking at. In that case, the SL-R is prolly your best choice, IMHO.

Probably the SL-R assuming you dont have big feet...in which case maybe a Legacy-R although its a bit stiffer so you may want to just get a Circuit-R or something...lol so many choices

SL-r fo sho. can handle anything the east coast will throw at it and then some plus you'll still be able to have some buttery fun on it.
