Smokin is the Never Summer of California.
I want to ride one with their clash rocker to compare it with my NS boards.
The NS of California and VT since thats where Jay is from.
Ive got plenty of time on both and they ride really similar. I think the smokin boards have a much stronger base but the rest of the construction I think is a little better on the NS boards. They are both rock solid boards and I wouldnt hesitate to he either. Ive got 6 boards but all I ride are smokin, NS and Venture.
