which 2011 NS board to get??

NS SL 155
NS Circuit 155
NS Revolver 153 or 156

help me choose my park board... out of those 3 boards. i'm just dying to try out NS boards, can't help it no more... lol

i'm 5'10, 180 pounds and wear US10 lashed boots

i chucked in revolver in the list because i can't get evo in the size i want... and i really want to try out evo!! so thinking 153 revolver, would it be too wide and too short for me??

is SL more all moutain oriented? or would it be sweet in park as well? mostly jibbing and some jumps

and i haven't heard much about circuit...

help me making a decision please...

Get a 155 Evo. You dont need a wide board. Circuit R would be the other park board but if you have the money, do the Evo. SL is not what you are looking for.

I use a EVO for a all mountain board. In S/E Michigan are hills are small.
5'10''
210
boot size 10

Why can't you get a EVO?

So tell your local shops that if they want your business then they will find you an Evo or you will order it online. You're spending hundreds of dollars on something that you will use for years. It is not your job to compromise and get a board with extra width and weight or features you have no use for. Riding a wide board when you don't have the feet for it is not fun. I know from expirience.

yea i'd call shops and find them..the local shop here doesnt list 155's on their site, but usually if you call them they have more on stock or can tell you when they will be(Daddies Board Shop).

Would suggest you track down an EVO. No reason to get a revolver with size 10's. Your shop should have no problem locating one for you this early in the season as long as you are in the states.

The season is almost upon us!!!!
