Yeah, it's true. All NS boards come with a 0 degree base bevel so you can bevel as much or as little as you want.

I found my SL a little catchy first time out, but that's offset a lot by the RC for non-park riding. I just put a half degree bevel to avoid the cat track/not paying attention catches.

As for being ready to go outta the box? Well, yeah. 90 sides and 0 base, and one of the better factory wax jobs I've ever had on a new board, lasted about as long as my hot wax jobs, not the normal 2-3 runs you get outta most factory waxes.
