I waxed my 2012 blacklist once and only once and that was because it was summer camp. I don't believe in waxing any more. Reverse camber boards actually keep their speed longer on flats because you're not having contact points digging in causing drag.

Oh and to you guys complaining about chipping here's what the PLM had to say to me about that when I asked him. "We do that on purpose because a chip is easier to repair than a delam." Me personally fuck it if it's only an aestetic.

Yeah I still dont have any chipping in my board just some small dents on the nose and tail from the tree runs and a rail or two and I am on day 15 with my board. Plus if it does chip all it takes is some epoxy and stickers to fix it.

Finishing up the 2013 board preview topic today hopefully. Going through and labeling plus uploading photos is a bitch we shot something like 1,200 photos.

You know if you people just followed me either on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or read my site you would see photos of these things days ago. Just saying technology keeps you in the loop with what I have going on. FYI product preview for boards is up.

Say it aint so. Looking at a preview of the 2013 Arbor catalog and the new blacklist and westmark for that matter are getting extruded bases.

Dont see the logic in this since it will effect speed. Sigh. Maybe i can find a 2012.

There's some '12s floating around still. Evo has 154 and 160 available, if you're looking for the 157 it is harder to find but I just got mine from jacksboardhouse.com they still have some 157s on sale for about $325.

How does the '13 ride compared to '12. Is it noticeably slower because of the base.

Heres the link to the '13 Catalog by the way: http://issuu.com/zuzupopo/docs/13_arbor/48
