NS Evo, bindings and boots - first board

Hi all!!

I'm looking to ride alot of indoor, begin (and hopefully keep on) freestyling and do some mountain once or twice year when I travel. And I was considering the K2 WWW, park pickle and NS Evo - to which Ive been sold on the Evo based on what I've read on this forum so far.

With regards to size, I'm 6 ft tall, around 78 kgs of weight (usually between 78 and 81 kgs), and I'm really struggling on which board to get - NS Evo 154 or 157, bearing in mind this will be my only board. What do you think.

As for the bindings, it seems the Rome 390 is a good match for this board - I think.
But for boots, I was considering the Burton Ambush - would it work well for this setup or is there a better alternative.

Appreciate all input

Well, I would think if your going to be doing the indoor thing.
I would get the shortest most noodle-e park board that slays rails & is a buttering machine.
I don't know which board that may be & it may not be one of the ones you stated, but that would be what I'd be leaning towards.

By the time you take whatever board outside, it may not be good for powder but you should be used to it enough that you shouldn't have to much of a problem, your probably going to continue what you were doing inside, only transferring it to the outside anyway.

I'm sure all the boards you stated are wicked, but there may be more appropriate boards for what you want to do?

Just something to ponder.

The evo will be a great indoor board.

Those bindings are a fine choice.

Boot choice is extremely rider specific and you should find ones that fit perfectly. I'd stay away from super stiff, but anything all-mountainy or softer would be fine. I like 32's myself, but that's cuz they fit. I wouldn't go too soft because I like support, but some all park riders like everything to be noodely.

Thanks to all responses

This being a first board, all these names and brands are only that to me - names! I can only base judgement on reviews other people did, as I didn't have much of a chance to try them all

Guess I'll read more on those other boards and try reach a sensible decision
