The never summer boards look great and those two boards you linked are exactly the "type" of board I'm looking for. I'll look further into what I can find for pricing on the Never Summer decks. Seems to be a brand thats hard to find in the online sales.
NS is a small company, with all there stuff made right here in the USA. As part of them being small, they do not have a huge distribution. That is also nice, you'll end up with something a little different than everyone else on the mountain. I've seen a number of them up on ebay recentlly (new,too). Keep an eye out there.
