Evo-R NS board!!!

Hey
Im going to buy the Evo-R NeverSummer snowboard. I heard great things about this board and deff getting it. I need to figure out what size to buy though. Im 5'10" weigh 160 and have a size 11 shoe size. Its going to be mostly freestyle, but occasionally doing a run or two on the slopes.
So i need a wide board (hopefully the come in wide?) and a good size for jumps and rails.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the Revolver-R is the wide version of the Evo-R.

Edit: and if you're going with the 09/10 I'd go with the 153.

Most likely you will not need a wide depending on your boot size(might be different then your shoe size). Evo should be fine. Would say either 153 or 155 depending on what you feel comfortable with. I weigh about the same and about an inch shorter. Felt much better on the 155 then the 153.

The season is almost upon us!!!!

I'm 5'8 160lbs and riding 151 evo everywhere, but still its about preferences if u like shorter or longer boards. 153 will be way to go in my opinion, if ur more into butters, rails , small kicker go with smaller or if ur more into bigger stuff like jump , halfpipe or carving go with bigger size.

Keep in mind the widths vary depending on board length. If you're going 155 or higher, you should be ok on the Evo-R. If you want 153, go with the Revolver-R, which is just mid-wide Evo.

Revolver might be a better bet depending on boots. Get fitted for snowboard boots first an example my boots now are a bit smaller then my shoe size. Thinking if your into rails the 153 will be fine for you.
153 revolver has a waist width of 26cm
153 evo has a waist width of 24.35cm which would be on the small size for size 11 boots. In my opinion depending on how ducked your stance is.

155 evo has a waist width of 25cm so if you went with this size you would not need the revolver if your boots are a size 11.

I do know a guy who I tried to get into a 156 revolver instead of a 155 Circuit-r(he has size 13 boots)he opted for the Circuit. He seems fine when I see him on my local hill. He is into freestyle and park.

The season is almost upon us!!!!

Right now i ride a duck stance of 15 -15. Im comfortable with this but in the future I might change it around to 18 -6 or 15 -9. Between there
Im thinking of going with the 155 evo, but are you saying that the 153 revolver would be a little bit better for rails?

Nope was just saying If you wanted the 153 size get the revolver-r. For a 155 size the evo-r is fine for your boot size
