On the size question: It depends on where you are going to ride and what kind of riding you are planning to do, but probably 158. 155 could be preferable if you are mostly going to ride park, small hills, and no powder.SORRY
You guys are probably super BOARD about this topic, but I kinda need help.
Some decent sale prices here in the UK and I am looking at getting my first board. I have basically narrowed it down to the Never Summer SL (surprise surprise), now I just need help with sizing.
I only started riding two years ago, I have about 3 weeks under my belt. I am looking at the SL because they have had great reviews and it seems like a board that I can have for a few season as I get better and better.
I have no interest in rails, jumps maybe, but more Free Riding. I wont be doing any deep plow for some time.
I am 5ft 8
weight 167 lbs
Shoe Size: US 10.5
I am looking to pair up the board with the Burton Cartel Restricted (this version is the only one I can source in the UK), I currently have a super soft boot - Vans High Standard
So the question really is go for the 155 or 158? Also do I need to look into a wide board (like the Heritage x)
And you do not need or want a wide board.
