Finally ready...

After going to the slopes a few times this season, I'm ready to get my own gear. I'm planning to spend my time 50/50 in the park and on the slopes. The board I'm looking at is the NeverSummer Evo-R. From what I have heard and read, it seems like this board holds up well in the park and slopes. Can someone confirm this?

Also, I'm not sure what size would be right for me. I'm a small dude at 5-3, 115-120 lbs and size 9 boots. I tried a Burton Custom V-Rocker 151 but I think it was too big for me. I used a 145 rental about a half dozen times and thought it was fine. Would the Evo 148 be okay or should I step it down to a 142? Would the waist be too small? Should I look at the Burton Blunt?

evo's a nice board that a lot of members were riding at Jay Peak. It tops my list as the next board to reside in my bag.

If you get a larger board you probably won't outgrow it after one season.

Sadly, I'm done growing. I just felt like when I was riding the Burton 151, I didn't have much control over it. Am I too much of a light weight for the 148? Also do people think the board is too narrow? The specs seem significantly smaller than what I have seen on other boards.

If someone can chime in on how the Evo compares to the Burton Custom or Blunt, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys.

As a beginner, the shorter is probably better. The grom 142 only has a 1 year warranty though, but it is also a lot less monay.

My son is riding a 2011 Evo-R Grom 130, and it is one hell of a board! He loves it

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

Any comments on how it compares with the Burton's? Can somone also confirm if it's a decent board for all mountain. I don't expect it BOMB down a black diamond or anything but dont want it to be too chattery going down the slope either.

Yes , its still decent board for allmountain. I'm able to carve down any terrain with my 151 evo which is on smaller side coz im 160lbs. If ur experienced rider u can manage every terrain with it. Yes it will be harder but still doable.
