Default Just bought a 2011 Never Summer SL

I literally JUST bought a 2011 Never Summer SL 155. Im 5'10 and 185 and do about 50/50 riding and terms of park and freeriding. But im starting to think that maybe I should exchange it for a 158? Ive heard this board is really stable at high speeds and because of R&C is should have no problem holding an edge when Im hauling it even with my weight. Initially I wanted to go with something a little more livelier and responsive so thats why I got a 155. You guys think Im fine or should I exchange it for a 158?

If i was you I would keep it at 155. The 158 would he a little too big to be hauling around the park. I think that the 155 would be fine for your size. It would be easier to control.

I'm 5'10' ~175-180 and I ride a 158 in this board, but it's mostly big mountain. My next SL will probably be a 161, and an evo 155 for park.

If you're in the east, 155 is fine, of you're out west, consider the 158.

Def depends on where you ride the most

The 55 if you don't see much powder, the 58 if you see a good amount of powder.

That 55 won't float very well at your weight, the 58 will do a little better.

I bounce from 180-200 and I ride a 63 Heritage wide. It measures a little short so it's more like a 61, but I take it everywhere.

I would have gone with the 158 too... I'm 5ft 10 , 165 pounds ish and just got a 158 but i do everything really... Powder with mates so since it's split opinion, i guess it's up to you. Probably not the answer you wanted xD

I'm 5'11" and 175lbs. I ended up with the 158, but I'm never really in the park. It'd be my all mountain board.
