My K2 topsheet looks like it's crumbling like a cookie along the edges. Topsheet is fine, but it's getting real ugly along the edges and when I saw used K2 Happy hour's for sale on ebay it was the same thing.

I do like that about Never Summer. They're not indestructible of course, but their regular topsheets were solid and their carbonium ones are excellent in my small experience.

Doesn't affect ride of course, but it's just nice.

I do feel like Mervin's all mtn boards ride well in the heavy wet PNW. But they aren't the only ones to do so. I think other companies do better bases, but durability is not a big issue with Mervin IMHO.

The fact that you can't spell out the word "English" is whats concerning to me. However, you are right this is not an "English" exam. Please continue your twitter quality grammar.

[QUOTE=jdang307;1640546]My K2 topsheet looks like it's crumbling like a cookie along the edges. QUOTE]

My K2 Parkstar has 28 days on it and I've had to epoxy top sheet pieces down 6 times. My Lib Tech TRS has quite a bit of minor damage on the nose and tail from hitting things. Strangely, my NS Proto has very little damage nose or tail and has double the days of either board.

I have hit lots of things with all three boards because I'm a clumsy moron who trys pretty much anything my riding buddy says I should try!
