NS Revolver

i'm still trying to get a park board.. i just cant decide

now i'm looking at never summer revolver-r 09/10 version

i'm 5'10 and around 180~185 pounds and thinking of getting 153 revolver-r. is it going to be too short for me?? or ok??

i'm new to park but want to get right into it this season. so the reason i'm looking for 153 is that i will learn off it and use it for rails later on

A 153 would work as would a 155 probably at your weight.

What size do you ride regularlly?

That will be a pure park board for sure. I am 6'2", 185 and have a 2009 Evo and I can press the hell out of it but it does get bounced around a bit on chopped out snow. It will be a great jib board at 153, 155 will give you more versatility and will be better on bigger jumps.

In general, I don't usually go to small but to me 153 seems too small.

I'm 5'10 on a 153 revolver, but mainly ride groomed trails(Ontario). Works perfrect for me, loving the size of it. But I dont hit many jumps and I have a rail setup beside my place, so that came into the mix when I choose the 153.
