And I rode SoCal for a year, they don't really get enough snow to get gnar chop.
I can see your complaint with the price difference in the Evo. But 30 to 50 bucks difference in the other boards? Not enough to consider NS "overpriced." And yes...we get plenty of chop. Sure only a few powder days per year, leaving every other day of the year either well groomed, icy as hell, or slushy think mashed potatoes. And I usually venture out of SoCal once or twice a season.

Again...until you've ridden one......
