2014 Never Summer SL vs. Proto vs. Cobra
 
forum newb here.

measurements:
6'0
200lb
size 11-11.5 boot

looking to upgrade my decade old Forum Elite

primarily riding: east coast trails. SOME park, but not a ton.

wants: something fast, holds edge, easy-to-ride and fun.

i'm trying to decide between the mentioned 3 NS boards. was originally considering a burton custom but after all the great things i've heard on the NS lines, I'm going that direction.

please advise, thanks!

From your list the Proto will serve you best, though there are many other options from other brands

Neversummer and libtech are NOT the top dogs.

There... now you've been told that too. ;)

Definitely the Proto from that list. You'd prob like the Gnu Rider's Choice and Spacecase too.

Two other boards I considered with the Proto, but did not ride yet, were the Salomon Time Machine and k2 Happy Hour, both 2014 models.

How does the Burton custom compare??

Because there are a lot of Neversummer / Mervin fan boys on these forums.
They make very good boards though
I vote the proto.
I like the never summer tech, i have a 2011 gnu riders choice as well. I prefer the NS tech.

Thank you. Do I need to worry about getting a wide board with a size 13 boot??
