Default Never Summer Sl-r size?

Hey guys. My friend is looking into buying a snowboard and wants to get a NS Sl-r. He is about 5'4" and 150 lbs, so we were wondering whether it would be better to get a 151 or 155. We found a brand new 2010 155 for $300 and would have to wait on a 151. What do you guys think?

I was also thinking about an Evo for him since I know a few people who freeride with it and it would be a softer board for him since he is still a beginner (beginning to link turns). I think he is only interested in groomers and POW, and eventually do small jumps. By no means will he be a park rat though. THanks for the advice.

IMHO, if he still learning, go for the 151...it will be a little easier to manage, esp at that height/weight.

If you wait till the new boards come out they have made a few additions to the sizes available.
The SL will be available in a 153 for the 2011 season.

Tough one..his height says 151, his weight says 155 ;d

Im tempted to say 155 if he seriously wants to do powder.

In deep powder @130lbs i still need to sit back fairly far to keep that tip up sometimes on my 151.

Either should work fine, if hes still gaining weight 155, if not or plans to lose some, 151.

As mentioned the 153 would be ideal, but your not going to find a new one for 300 dollars either.
