NS Heritage which size for me?

Hi
im from germany and this is my first post in this forum.
I want to buy a new NS Heritage. I'm 6'0'' about 195lbs and boot size 11.
I use this board 80% on groomers, 15% pow and the other 5% Park
I was deciding between the 160 and 162

What do you think?

Thanks leonek

Go with the 62. Even the 160 is longer than I would want for jibs & rails, but since you rarely ride park I would just go with the longer 162.

I'm 6'1, 200lbs and I ride a 158x, don't ride the park at all either. I think it's great. I demo'ed a 160 and thought the 158 felt better.

You shoudl definitely be riding a 160. As snowolf said, NS boards have a longer effective edge than similarly sized boards from other brands. For instance my Heritage 158 has more effective edge than a Nitro TG 159 that I used to have.

15 Now Drive . 14 Burton Genesis
14 Flow Hylite
