Re: REVIEW; Neversummer Raptor 156

Check on evo.com, they have a size chart for each individual board. The 156 shows 125-175 lbs, while the 159 is 145-195. seems like you may find the 159 a better fit?

I'd say 156.

Re: REVIEW; Neversummer Raptor 156

Nice. I'm 165 lbs and was almost considering the 159. Danm also said to go for the 156.

Any reason behind going 156 vs 159 for irongoose? The size chart shows him right in the middle of the range for 159, and really at the top of the range for 156. Is it just cause they "ride long"?

I was also just maybe thinking 159 so that i can grow into it a bit more since i am quite short and my current park board (never summer evo 2012) useto be at my eyebrows now its perfect at my chin but i also think it would be better to get the best for now rather then struggle. But, by looking at the charts on evo.com i am almost maximum for the 156 but in middle for the 159

If you are still growing get the 159 for sure

It seems people are still looking at height more than weight when choosing a size for a new deck. I weigh 170 and 180+ with riding gear, I could not imagine riding a 156 or smaller!! I usually ride 161+ and have 59 for my play board.

Go 159!

I blame myself for hijacking this thread with talk about snowboard sizing and width. Sorry. Back to the 2014 Raptor! SnoWolf - when do you think you'll have the review ready?

Agree with this, it might ride you at first but you'll grow into it.

No guilt needed, just a nice ongoing conversation about a kick ass board! BTW, I think you should just go 165X, should be perfect for your feet.
