What size Never Summer

I am considering either a Never Summer SL or Proto CT. I am 5'11 and 180lbs. I will be riding mostly groomers with some park and mountain riding. Please let me know what size board would fit me best and which one you would suggest.

I ride in central california at Sierra Summit so we don't get much ice or powder.

It really just depends. If you're into bombing and jumping, I'd go 158 for either. If you're more into playing around and jibbing, I'd go with 154 Proto.

I'm the opposite of most guys. When torn between two sizes, I'll generally lean toward the larger. Then again, I don't do much jibbing and you won't see me hucking any crazy spins either. For me, the added stability of the larger size favors my style of riding which is a lot of hard charging and jumps.

Curious about sizing myself. I'm 5'10" and 170.

Started out on a 157 and then was encouraged to move up to a 161 with my second board. Now looking at a new one and wonder if I should stick with a 161 or drop back a little. I don't hit trees much but maybe that would change.

Curious what the current thoughts on sizing are?

Im 6'2", 185lbs and ride a 161 SL and i do prefer to have more stability at higher speeds instead of manoeuvrability, all be it the 161 is still quite nimble. I would go down to 158 if I was doing more park riding, even down to 155 if I really wanted a more playful deck.


So SBK id go 158 or 155 for you depending on how much park youre planning to ride

sandaddiction id probably go 158 for you.

Thanks RaID. No park for me so 158 might be the ticket. I'm down from 185 pound, an would like to get down to 165 pounds before the season starts, so maybe that is why I was recommended a 161cm.

Is this general or specifically for Never Summer? the Never Summer SL is on my short of boards I am looking at.

I'm about 5'10" and 160-165lbs and have the 155SL and its sick, can smash it down at high speeds down any groomer no problem, handles jumps well and has a good amount of pop for a little bit of jibbing

This would be general for current generation of rocker or hybrid camber boards.
