I have recently purchased the Never Summer Revolver in a 158. I want this board to be my main park board, and am having conflicting suggestions as to what size I should get. Some of my friends tell me that I should go for the 155, and whenever I ask Never Summer industries, they give me the same generic response. Its whatever you like. I never really had a park board, and have heard it should be smaller, so I am thinking I may have to buy the smaller one, but still am not sure. Please shed some light. Thanks so much.

My specs: 6-6'1, 180-185 lbs, size 12 foot.

Riding style - i want this to be my park board, so I want it to butter, rail, jump, and still keep its stability.

Thanks again.

Sounds to me like the 158 is perfect if you want to keep a bit of stability.

My specs almost the same as yours (6'2, 180 lbs, 12.5 boot), and I have a 10/11 156 one. At faster speed I feel it a little unstable but for park board I couldn't imagine a better one. I think yours will be perfect for you.

Size

My only concern is that it is considered a large board for the park. I currently ride, and have only riden, the burton custom 2008 (not so sure) in a 158. It is quite a stiff board, and stable going at high speeds, and off the kickers keeps the landing just as I like it. But as far as buttering and all that other stupid fun stuff, makes riding a bit bleh. Maybe I am making a bit too much of the size difference, but as a student who just doesn't have the means to keep buying snowboards, I want it to be perfect is all.


Thank you for your reply.

I did not see all of these replies when I sent in my reply.

Thanks again to all of you!

I know this will completely throw off your decision but I find that my forum 148 is perfect in the park for my specs.

You're seriously riding a 148 at 240# with a size 13 boot??? :eek:

gimmy, you've already bought the board. The size is fine. In fact, I'd say the size is damn near perfect.

Thanks linvillegorge and to everyone else. I think i'll stick with the board.

Hahaha and I think jaken1990 is messing with me - he must be!

Haha not at all, I hate the feel of the 160's and 170's; feels like I'm behind the wheel of a boat. My normal board I ride is a 155w Burton Blunt with Union Forces.

Ahh well if you dont, then you dont. If you ever decide to buy a new snowboard, might I suggest the Burton Nug. The board is designed to be riden 10 cm less than you would normally ride, but still feels the same length. Two of my pals recently bought the nug, and they rave over the board.
