Appreciate some advice on size of board to buy. Never Summer Evo 154, 157 or Revolver 155?

I am 5'11" and 190lbs w/ size 11 Nike boots and Union l/xl bindings.
Thanks!

I'm pretty much the same size you are and the NS Proto 157 I rode was fun but seemed a little small as an all mountain board... best advice I could give is try em before you buy em so you can see which one fits you and your riding style...

Need way more info than that to really help... What level are you at? What type of riding? What hills primarily?

For a freeride board you'd want something longer than 160 at your weight. But for a freestyle board something around 155-157 would work. Personal preference comes into play too...

Hills are small to medium. Ride all types of boxes, stay away from large rails and big jumps at my age, 180 everything all the time, love to butter. Not sure of alot of terms but come from 80's skate background. Some one mentioned toe drag, haven't had that since early 90's. What else?:icon_scratch:
