Second board-Never Summer Evo question
 
Hello:)

Level:Close to Intermediate

Weight:Average is 76 Kilograms (167 pounds)

Boot size:28cm (11 inches) My Left foot is 28.5 lol But I wear 28cm

Riding: Everything? I like to do kickers and some park items (Not at park all the time) about 50 Percent. Oh and I like spinning

Age:20 (I think I stopped growing)

Height:178cm (5.8? Feet)

Location:Japan

Budget:Enough for a NS


Hello everyone! I am interested in buying the Never Summer Evo 154.
I have 2 questions.

1. Considering my Height,Weight, and style, is 154 best for me?

2. I am also considering a Proto CT since I have heard it can Ollie, Jump better due to the extra stiffness. But I have heard softer flex is noob friendly and easier to butter. If the Evo wont have serious issues in ollies and kickers Ill definitely go with the Evo. Any advices?

My first board was a used directional. It had okay flex but I couldn't butter freely with it. Now I want a true twin board that is versatile, while handling kickers.

I wanted the Evo board since last season. I have researched it thoroughly, seen other threads. I just want some people to confirm that I made the right choice so I don't regret later.

Thank you all, looking forward to your replies.

Sounds good to me. Trying to wrangle up a '54 evo myself, weigh 175lbs. Sounds like u got your info straight already. :thumbsup:

I have a 154 and am pushing 185 and I still reckon I would be just very slightly happier on the 152(151, I can't remember) personally I say size down one!

How do like the way the 154 evo handles at 185lbs? Im 185 currently and defiantly wanna get a evo or proto cause I love my heritage once my arbor dies? Im just trying to figure out which size, i was debating on getting the 154 Proto cause its a little stiffer.

If your 5'8 then I would think about going a little shorter especially if you wanna progress with your spins in the park...I ride a 155 and im 6 foot about 140 lbs

No complaints with how the Evo handles. Amazingly fun board! I also have a 157 Proto. Equally brilliant.

I'm on a 154 @ 165lb 5'9 and for the most part it feels spot on. It started feeling a little short and/or soft when bombing the piste in lumpier conditions. But that is to be expected. Feels effortless to spin (as far as I can do them - fs 360 on small side hits so far).

I have a 154 and am 210lbs (Im 190 by the time boarding season starts) and its a fun board to ride, but definitely gets a little squirely. I ended up picking up a 158 Proto because I think the 154 is a little small for my weight and you can definitely tell at points.

By the way, Would putting Rome 390 boss bindings L/XL with Salomon Dialogues 10.5 have any problems with a NS Evo 154? I have a feeling they would "hang" over the board a bit too much:confused:
