Never Summer SL Vs Never Summer LEGACY

Hey everyone im having a hard time choosing which board to go with all because of my siz


Never Summer Sl:

http://neversummer.com/snow/snowboards/sl/

Never Summer Legacy:

http://neversummer.com/snow/snowboards/legacy/

My stats:
5'11
135lbs
Size 11 shoe

Age 15

Ive spent 8 months saving up for one of the boards and i don't want to get screwed with a board that's too small for my feet.

Also im still growing so i want a board that will last me years to come.

Thanks in advance for all your help!

EDIT: Also will the legacy be two big for my size and weight? or it just not the board for me.

And if you have the time a recomended size would also help, i want to keep this board for years to come if i can. probally around 2-3

Well... I'd go with the legacy. you're only 15yo, and gonna grow more.
Foot seems to grow up for a 2-3 years definately. I don't remember my foot size in 15yrs, but i wear us13 from 18 till now(21yo). I'm also using legacy-r and that's great board.
Also try to get a bigger board for you. You won't lose lots of performance, but you can use the board for 2-3-4 years. it won't be any problem. i consider you won't change a board per year, if it took 8 monthd to save for the board.

so my opinion in shorter: get legacy, as your foot will grow. get longer one, as you will grow up(weigth and tall).

For your weight, I'd say 156.

i'd choose a bigger one. if he'd grow faster(and he would, he's only 15) it's be ok for 17 years rider.
however it depends on where you ride. i got lots of powder, and trying to get longer board. I ride NS legacy-r 174 now.

This. You could take that thing all over the mountain and even if you gained 50+ pounds over the next 3 years, it would still be good to go all over the mountain for you.
