Gear Question

is there any difference between youths 142...

is there any difference between youths 142 and adult sizes? i am 5'2 and 115 lbs adult. but i am afraid youth sizes are not as durable or the same as adult sizes. i remember reading from the never summer uk site that last years 142 evo only has standard camber tech and seems to lack the vario grip vs. the adults r.c tech vario grip system. if that is the same as this year then i would much rather get the 148. anyone can give me any advise?

a 148 in kids is a 148 in adult all boards are measured in centimeters. and for jibbing the evo is amazing

the 142 is perfecto 4 u it does only have a one year warrenty cause the cores is softer which is the only difference but the 142 will be good 4 your size and it does have vario and the r.c. tech i love dogfunk but u can get the 142 on other sites for $280 so if u do deside to get the 142 type neversummer evo 142 in on google and youll find a cheaper price i talked to the owner of neversummer and he said theres nothing special about the 142 that dogfunk sells for $490 its the same thing as the $280 one

yeah there is a little difference in flex (stiffness and flex patterns) a kids board will be a little softer and a little less durable because companies dont put the same effort in to kids boards because they will grow out of them faster. and thats also why they are cheaper
