Default 150 or 152 NS Evo 2012

Hi guys

Could I get some opinions on whether a 150 or 152 would be better for me?

I am a beginner taking the evo on groomers first up and looking to learn and get better.

I weigh 130lbs.

150 would be better to turn but 152 more stable down the slopes?

Won't be doing tricks yet as I have only snowboarded for 4 days.

Thanks guys!

What is your age?
Yes, the longer one will be slightly more stable, but at a beginner level, your not going to notice the difference. You might as well flip a coin and go with which ever, unless you are due a growth spurt or something.

Ok, no growth spurt planned then. What kind of riding are you hoping to get into once you've mastered the basics?

Free riding and freestyle. Start doing ground tricks and the like.
Don't see myself taking the park seriously as I'd be too worried about breaking my neck lol

As a beginner, no you won't. However, as you get more experienced in both skill and various types of boards and sizes... you will notice.

The question then will be... is it that big of a difference? To that I say no.

The Evo is blunted so it rides longer than the size suggests.

There are also a few other boards you should consider if you are not planning on going into the park. Maybe the heritage will be a better choice from NS line. The evo is still able to take on the mountain but there are better boards to do it.

He said he wants to freestyle... just not in the park yet. I haven't been on the Heritage yet, but that board definitely does not strike me as the buttering type.
