Default Never Summer Heritage 155 158 or 156w?

Hello,

Stats:
5'8"
179 lbs
10.5 boots

My main joy of going out is on groomers, high speed, moderate deep carves maybe 1 day of fresh honest pow a year. I am learning to jump, and spin, but my ratio of freeride vs "park" is 85/15. What size board would you recommend for my situation?

I am set on the NS Heritage, so hopefully someone can post with similiar stats and board info.

Get a 162. Ride it, complain that it's too big, then sell it to me for well below MSRP. This is the best solution.

Real answer:

158 if you want to continue to ride as you currently do, 155 if you see yourself getting into more freestyle.

How much below retail do you want to pay for a 162? I think I should have goten a Primer F1 as the Heritage may be too soft for me. Probably not selling it for real but I think I would have to listen to offers anyway just in case. Mine has one day on it (will have two tomorrow) and is in mint condition.

I was actually going to bring up the idea of the OP checking out the premier as well. A good amount stiffer and the thing plows through variable terrain like nothing - good for maching groomers or if he wants to take it to the steeps. Better fit for the 85% of riding he is going to be doing. Just not nearly as playful as the Heritage.
