I have a 154 proto for sale if anyone is interested. Have only used it 3 times on the mountain. Its just a bit too stiff for my liking. Would swap for a 2012 evo in 157 also.

Sorry to post another of these questions, but I'm 14 so I'm still growing and I'm wondering whether I should get the proto ct or the ctx. I'm 6 foot, 160 pounds and size 11 Burton AWOL boots. Also I want the board to last for a while so should I get the 155 or the 158?
Thanks.

I am 6', 210 pounds with size 11 boots and I rode the 57 without any difficulty. You could ride the 154 CT or the 55 CTX. Since you'll probably gain some weight, too, you could consider the 57 CT or 58 CTX as well but these might ride a little long for you currently.

You probably don't need the CTX unless you expect your feet to keep growing. Since you're only 14 that is certainly possible, but I think even a size 12 would be OK on the Proto CT.

Hmmm, not sure if my advice actually helps you or makes it more confusing.

god damnit I wish I wasn't so short so I could get one of these bad boys, it would be perfect for what I need Too bad NS only makes the evo in the 140's.

Weight is more important than height.

yea I know they do, I have last years evo mini 142 I Outgrew it a bit though and am now looking into this years 147. I just wish they made the proto a size smaller at 149cm. Then I can get that as more of an all mountain board and use the evo mini as my jibstick. oh well

and funny, was just thinking I should be more mad about being skinny than short in this case

I'm still completely stoked over this board and the only riding I've done since receiving it last week is to strap in and hop around my home office. This is unacceptable! How many days until winter?!?

2012 NS Proto CT 157
2011 (new, purchased on clearance) Burton Prophecy bindings.
2011 K2 T1 boots.

Hey everyone! I am planning on ordering my Proto next week, but am trying to figure out what size i want to go with. I ride 70% mountain 30% park...more into the jumps/kickers but do hit the rails occasionally. I'm 6'2" 215lbs with size 12 boots. What size do you think would be the best for me? Thanks for all the help!
