    Posted: May/12/2013 at 12:42am
I was originally riding on a DC 149 Focus board, bought it off a friend.
Just bought a 152 Never Summer Evo, being 150 lbs will I notice a big difference in the size? I know I will notice a difference just from the different board and cuts, but will that 3 cm make much of a difference?

you will probably notice a little bit of it in stability during riding but it depends if you're using the board for big kickers or the terrain park.Every rider has a preference on how large or small they want their board size to be but if size doesn't matter to you and it still meets your expectations on the hill,I guess 3cm isn't that much of a big deal.
you should be okay but if you're like 4"8-5"2 tall you might run into some problems.

generally speaking sizing depends on your weight and not height...and 152 cm is just fine for a 150lb person...generically speaking, sizing is all about your preference but if you have to ask a forum about sizing then you haven't found a preference yet. not to worry though, you will eventually figure it out.

All I know about the size I want is that I dont want one that is really long, early on I have found I like the park. Guess it comes from skateboarding, but within the first month snowboarding I was doing frontside board grabs off of jumps. But yea, no true preference yet, but i did want one longer than the 149 i was using so i could keep up down hill a little better with some of my buddies that ride longer boards.

You feel the difference for sure, but in a good way if your main concern for now is keeping up.
Tricks wise, depends how strong you are and your stamina.
I ride 147s but have a 144 for messing around. Definitely feel the weight difference. The difference is mostly in how the weight is distributed in a longer board. But you'll get use to it fast.
144 is smallest I can go. I'm assuming 149 is smallest you'll wanna go. If 147 is my all mtn freestyle size, then 152 should be your all mtn freestyle size.
152 will be a lot more stable for you.
Don't worry, you got the size for what you want it to do. You can still progress in park with this size.

I ride a 125, 130 and 135 and I don't really see the difference besides in stability and stiffness.  I think you'll really see the difference if you do like rails and boxes.  Even if you run into problems, with practice you can always overcome it so I wouldn't sweat it.  I ride an Evo as well and it's an awesome board.

125 - 135?  Wow, that's small.

Just based on weight - 152cm should be good for you.  You did not mention how long you have been riding or the type of riding you do which factor into your board selection.  A lot of the board sizing guides are very generic, you can learn more by demo-ing boards of different sizes, stiffness, shapes, etc.

125cm? Holy moly Midget exactly how tall are you ? I notice a huge difference from riding a 148,151,152 but i guess you tend to feel it more traversing through different snow condition especially on the legs but once you adapt to the new size you tend to forget about it. I've herd so much good things about Never Summer,I'm deciding if I should try out NS or get a Niche for next season.

I know never summer makes a good board, and the DC i was using was a little to stiff for my liking, so I was shopping around for one with a bit more flexibility and found the Never Summer Evo. It also helps it was designed more towards park since that is what im doing more of.

No, i dont have either board with me, im in afghanistan right now and bought the new one while everything was on sale for the summer. All I could manage to do was look up the flex ratings and such on a couple different sites for the 2 boards.

The length measurements given by the manufacturer are pretty useless. There is no way to know how different the board will feel based on the comparison of two numbers from two companies. You will need to use a measure tape on the base side to measure its actual running length from tip to tail. And even with that measurement, other factors will influence its ride: sidecut radii, widths, taper, camber profile, longitudinal and torsional rigidity, materials and construction, so on and so forth. 

If your objective is to find a more stable board for chasing your friends, then effective edge is the given measurement that you should be comparing. Sidecut radius will also affect high-speed stability versus turn initiation-- smaller radius is easier to turn.
