I really like the Gravity Brad Edwards deck, especially for how versatile it seems,but I am also thinking about the Never Summer Norad or the Sector 9 Mama Say. Any thoughts on these?
It really depends what your doing. I have a Never Summer Assault for downtown ripping, can ollie, kickflip and 180 on it which is super fun, its the perfect all around board. I also have a Sayshun Polar for downhill and freeriding with 82a wheels. If you ever intend on sliding and riding switch then you might consider getting a twin board like my Sayshun, theres lots of them out there... a stiffer thicker board will feel stable at good speeds and slide pretty well. If your just casually cruisin slopes and pushing around that Norad would be great. My NS is super sweet and they are a rad company to support.
