NS Revolver is it too wide?

Hello Everyone,
I am new here and just bought a brand new 2012 Never Summer Revolver 155. I am 6 ft tall, weigh 160lbs and have size 10.5 to size 11 boots. I would say that I am an intermediate rider, rides 10-15 days a year. My past ride was a 2008 Burton Blunt 157, in which I had a lot of problems washing out.

I want a board for jumps and rails, but can also be taken all over the mountain. Is the revolver a significant step up from the blunt? Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks

You should be fine. You could easily ride a regular width board but now you have a wide . As long as you have a bit of overhang you'll be able to put pressure on the edges and initiate turns easily. 55 is pretty long for your weight but nothing that you couldn't handle.

First post to ask if something you bought was good? I usually, make that always, research then purchase. Too wide for what? You can ride it. I would have recommended an evo.

I did a lot of researching and found contradicting advice. Some sites and stores recommend a wider board for size 11 boots, others do not.

Nevertheless I returned the revolver and picked up a 2012 SL 151. I think it will be a much better fit.

I did the same thing. Bought a wide and lived with it for 4 years. Just got a regular width. Any reason why you went shorter? You sound tall and light enough to whip any 150-something around. Too short and it might feel a little squirrely.

For some reason my old board just felt too long for me. I am keeping it, so I felt that having a longer wide board for powder would be nice. And a short park/freestyle board for those other days.
