i'm 6'1 and 175lbs. I rode the 59 rip last season a fair bit. if you are into high-speed riding, dropping rocks, hitting chutes go with the 59. it floats fairly well in a foot of fresh, too. it's not the best "butter" or skate-like-deeling board, but it holds on ice and will keep you centered on bigger drops.

if you are one of those guys that likes to charge the park all day and needs a stiffer board for bigger landings, the 56 rip is the way to go.

DaveMcI 159. You will thanks me on a powdery day. I have a ns heritage 159 that is very similar and I'm 175 Lb and I couldn't imagine being on anything smaller.

Psi-Man I rode a 156 for the day and loved it. I'm 6' 220lbs. It would be a toss up for me between the 156 or 159. I would probably go 159 as I can't shake the old school mentality that bigger is better.

linvillegorge Based on your size, either would suit you. Based on what you've stated as your riding style preference, 159.

ek9max I guess I should read the chart before recommending to you.

Looks like the 159 would be best for your boot size and weight.

I planned to drop 5-10lbs before the season starts, so 156cm would be ideal for me.

I really have no clue what NS was thinking by recommending the 153cm to me with my weight and boot size.

ek9max I'm getting a ripsaw also.

I emailed Never Summer for sizing help and they recommended a 153cm or 156cm.

I'm 5'8" 160lbs. size 9.5 boot.

So judging by their recommendation, I would say 156cm for you as we are about the same weight which is all that matters from what I hear.

This chart may help you too.
