K2 vs. Never Summer?

Hey i'v been looking at some boards now and didn't know which is better. I herd a lot of great stuff about the K2's but I have also herd good stuff about the Never Summer's. My question is which type would you perfer? I want to start riding mountain more instead of park, but I would like to have a board that could do both. Thanks for your help. And I'm also 5'7, 150lb, and size 11.5 shoe size in US.

Can you narrow down which model you are looking at? Each company makes over a dozen men's boards each.

All of their boards go down the mountain. You've got to be more specific in what you are looking for so we can help you

Do you mean all mountain? If so where do you ride, is there lots of pow or mostly groomers? Also, your weight and foot size would be helpful.

I'm 5'9" 155 lbs, and last season I rode a 2009 K2 Jibpan 150 (unfortunately they don't make that board model anymore) as my park board and a 2009 Never Summer SLR 155 as my more freeride-board that I still took into the park. Freeride is the term people use to describe riding the trails and not the terrain park. This season I am riding the Proto CT 154 a my park board, and maybe the Jones Hovercraft 156 or NS Summit 161 as my powder / big mountain board... if I can sell off my Jibpan and old SL.

I would recommend the Never Summer SL 153 or 155 for you which is still pretty darn good in the park as well.

Good luck.
