Help with a Never Summer board

Ok, so here it is. Another help me pick a board thread. I want to get my brother a Never Summer board for Christmas. He was telling me how he would like to buy an EVO-R because its reverse camber. Well he doesn't ride the park at all. He rides most everything else. Not a lot of jumping. Just kind of cruises down the hill. I think he would be better off with the Heritage. None of them say "reverse camber". Also as far as size goes. He weighs about 145, and is only 5'4". He is riding a board that is way short for him now, and was talking about getting a 148 which is still going to be way short. I think I should get him a Heritage 155. I just need some reassurance that Im doing the right thing.

Well, personally I'd say the EVO-R is fine for more than park. I mean, if he's not using it for bombing and just casual riding and possibly messing around, it would be good. No real idea on the heritage though. The ones with an R in the name have reverse camber, not sure about what else in their lineup.

Board: Directional
Bindings: Burton Missions 07
Boots: Burton Freestyle 07

Hmm, yeah that looks like it would be good for him.

Im really liking the Heritag-R's grafix. He is from Colorado, but is stationed in Alaska. He has a Colorado flag up in his barricks. So he would love the flag on the board.

well 155 is going to feel a little big for him.
It's totally doable but for jumps and whatnot it will feel a bit heavy too.
I'm 155lbs and a 155 felt too big for park but ok for all mountain.
If he is still growing then it's probably ok b/c he can use for a long time.
I just got a SL-R 151 and it's amazing for everything. Has really good pop.

Well he doesnt jump much anymore. Were getting old lol. Trees, bowls, and groomers, is pretty much it. Your right on the size though. I liked the Premier F1-R, but the smallest it comes in is a 157. That might be pushing it a bit for him. Thanks for the reply though.
