don't take my word only though, just offering my limited advice as i have the board.
Well, I'm coming from am '07 K2 Union 164w, full camber park board, way too big. I was thinking of the 161 SL, and I can't believe 3cm is really going to make that much difference. It's still going to be light years ahead of what I ride now... which i get up to 50mph on my gps (which I know everyone hates, but it's a relative number).

Epic, gimme a couple days, let me mull it over, and if you still have it, I'll PM you.

No such thing.

Discussed multiple times on this forum - that chart is made by Evo and, at least in past iterations, has some pretty ludicrous and nonsensical 'information'.

Never Summer does not have a size chart and actually actively discourages such charts.

this is true - if i'm correct, i believe the size for NS boards is more relative to stiffness, so maybe with this in mind... if you wanted a more playful board, get the 158, if you only wanna blaze down shit super fast, get the 161.

Epic,
PM me where you are in NY and what your best and final would be on that 159 Legacy if I picked it up and didn't need it shipped.
Thx.

Deals fell through. Make an offer, price is negotiable.
