I bought my Heritage back in the fall of 2010. I had no connection with the company or with anyone on the forum. I bought it because it was being offered for a good price, people had said good things about NS, and I was curious about the rocker/camber. Also because I'd outgrown my beginner board.
I like the Heritage. I make no bones about that. I don't claim it's the best board out there because I haven't owned enough boards to make that determination. But it's a good board, and lives up to any of the hype that I've read about it.
My next board will probably be an NS, but not definitely. Something else might trigger my curiousity or someone might just be selling something for killer cheap at the right time.
In retrospect, "Let's get the goat drunk"
should have been my cue to leave the party.
