I don't believe there are any differences at all.

Then stay away from the Cobra. It's a powder board. If you're not seeing 50% powder then N.S. has better boards like the SL.

The Cobra's described as an SL or Proto for powder.

jdang307 Do you ride switch? If not, might I suggest the Cobra which might alleviate your powder fatigue.

I'm 140-145 and rode the 151 SL. Worked ok in powder but needed a little effort

jkc350z yah the Evo is def. a bit noodly for what I want but it is a great board and held its own.

155 it is!

Thanks all!

Cycle4Fun Go with the longer board. You're not in the park. You'll have more stability and better flotation in powder with a long board. The benefits of the longer board will greatly outweigh the slightly less maneuverability.

I bought a 158 SL at the end of the season last year after demoing a bunch of boards. I demoed the 158 Legacy, but it's what they had to demo. You'll notice a huge difference in performance from the noodly Evo to the SL. I did a similar transition.

I weigh 160, ride a 158, but never see any powder in the MidWest.

I do fine with the 153, but in POW its really tiring and has quite a bit of chatter in the loose stuff. I am looking for more stability and dampness. The SL looks right up my alley.

I am 5' 10", around 140-145 lbs. Should I get the SL in a 153 or 155.

I usually ride groomers, trees, the occasional jump and play around on natural features. Basically freeride, but nothing too crazy. I am leaning towards the 155, but need a lil more confirmation.

Thanks!
I'm 5' 9" 145 lbs on a SL 155 in this video.



Again on an SL 155 on this jump video.

Skinny Bam Ya id prob say 155, im 6ft 135lbs and thats what I have and I ride pretty much everything. My roomate has the 151 but he's shorter than me by a bit. Especially since you said you almost never hit the park your gonna gain more from the extra stability of a longer board vs the easier maneuverability of the shorter one. Not that 155-153 is gonna make a HUGE difference...
