Ride or NS

I'm looking for a new park board and I was pretty set on the ride kink 147, but after doing a lil research on here i've heard neversummer has some great park boards. Which would you guys recommend? I'm 5'7 140lbs. Any input would be appreciated.

P.s. I'm looking to do some medium size jumps also.

I'm not personally familiar with either board, but from what I've heard the Ride Kink would probably be "softer" than the NS Evo-R. If you want a board you can take in the park and also on parts of the mountain the EVO-R would definitely fit that bill...
On the other hand, the EVO-R is most likely more durable than the Kink, so you might want to factor that in as well... (and the 3 year warranty).

I'd go NS. My buddy has a Kink and while it's a fun board to ride, it's a pure noodle. That thing is downright scary at speed on a steep groomer. I'm sure it would be better if I was used to it, but if I was cruising on a steep groomer and hit chop on that thing, I'd have have a yardsale no doubt.

NS Evo-R in a 148 would make you very happy...

The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.
Buy it... Ride it... Love it...

a ride machete is probably more comparable to an evo-r, so you should look at that instead of kink. If anything you should look at the crush instead of the kink because it has lowrize rocker

the guy said he was looking for a park board - it's fair to assume he won't be spending too much time lapping steep groomers on it...

if you have access to and can afford NS, then buy them over Ride.

NS have great park boards, are built in USA (Colorado) and have a 3 year warranty.

Ride have decent park boards, but they're manufactured in China and only have a 2 year warranty...if that.
