I would love to throw in my 2 cents
A welcome 2 cents indeed.
I live in Japan and bought a proto last year, have been hugely impressed with it so far and thoroughly intend to get more NS boards (maybe a summit for the japow) .
With all your experience, the fact that you ride mostly NS says a lot about their quality
Look forward to seeing some more video footage.
I also played some rugby, at 6ft and 78-80 kilos I ran the wing as much as possible avoiding hits from guys like you
