Default My NS is thick as hell at the tips (pics) and never chips after 3 years

I just finished waxing my two friends boards (a skate banana and some womens K2 board) and was looking at my brothers k2 darkstar and realized that my NS is at least 50% thicker at the tips. In addition, I have been riding this board since 08 or 09 and the thing almost looks like it could be new (no, I don't ride like a pansy). My brother who just got his darkstar for christmas already has all kinds of dings and chipping around the edges at the tip and tail as did the other k2 and the banana that I was working on (not to mention the banana doesn't even have a metal edge going around the tip and tail which I think its really stupid). Why don't more manufacturers follow this lead and make board that are thicker to increase durability? pics.
