Help me pick a NeverSummer board!

I know there are prob 100 threads like this, but bear with me

Neversummer Proto VS Heritage

I am 5'11, 165-170, Size 11 Nike Kaiju Boots

I have Union Force MC 2013 Bindings(Got them for a deal too good to pass up, like half off)

I do about 75% Mountain & 25% Park, I like to play around, jumps, ect
I live on the east coast

So..

160 VS 158 Heritage
160 VS 157 Proto

Pros V Cons, I cant really see any really big difference in tech used in either board

I am leaning more towards the Proto, how will that be with the Union Force MC bindings?

I have the heritage in a 158X and I'm 6'1 200lb and it's big enough for me. Probably same riding style as you but more mountain then park.

How about the cobra or SL for some in-betweens? The heritage and Proto are very different boards

Ahh. True. Ok so one is a park board that does well on the mountain, the other is a freeride deck that can handle the park. If you like rails and boxes then Proto, or if like me, you only do jumps in the park then Heritage.

Twin vs directional, though the Heritage will be fine switch.

157/8 for sure. I say Heritage, but that's just me.

I'm 5'9" 155 lbs and I own the Proto 154 and the SL 155. If you only are riding the park 25%. I would say SL, Cobra or Heritage. Since you say carbonium topsheet - I say Cobra 158 or Heritage 158.

All this talk about needing twin for switch riding is overblown - in most cases, it is a pretty small difference. Don't worry about it until you are starting to land 540s... or not even... a Burton Fish is about as directional as you could possible get... 2" setback, huge taper, cutout tail...

Just east coast? I'd say the Evo.

Since u didn't choose that, Proto

Unless you plan trips to J-hole and the like, the Heritage is just extra board you don't need, hence my suggestion of the Evo even. I'm getting one soon that will replace my Proto if the only thing we have to ride all year is a WROD like last year.

The scaled down boards will be more playful and fun on smaller mountains.

I would consider the cobra, but the snake graphic, I do not like it

The limited edition proto is badass, I am leaning towards that
