Took the NS Infinity 145 for a run on Monday. WOW what a difference! Thanks so much to all of you for your advice... Awesome board... it was better at EVERYTHING... gripping on ice, ease of turning, forgiving, stable on flats, stable at higher speeds. I was afraid a new board might not make that much of a difference, but I was definitely wrong! This has made riding even more fun if that's possible! Can't wait to get back out there. Also ran into another girl who just got the Infinity as well, and she was loving it too. Thanks to borborygmii for the BuySnow sale tip... looks like I saved $100 compared to the other girl!
