I'm looking for a board for next season. I'm about 6', 215 lbs, and size 13 feet, so I'm going to need a wide board. I ride a pretty even mix between park and mountain. I've been looking at the 159 Never Summer Heritage X wide and it seems like what I'm looking for. Does anyone have any experience with this or any idea of what else I could look for?
I checked out the Revolver-r and it looks like it'd be way too park for me (even though it looks sick). The Legacy looked a bit more my style, but I had trouble finding it in my size. Do you have any idea how much the '10 heritage r would run? I found some pics and I like the look and from what I've read the boards aren't supposed to change much from this year.
The Revolver-R is definitely more geared at Park riding, as it's the wider version of the Evo. The Legacy is a good freeride/mountain/powder board, but somewhat clunky for Park riding. The '10 pricing for NS shouldn't be much different than the 08/09 models out currently. You can grab the current model Heritage X for a pretty good price over at Dogfunk. I think it's about $389 right now before shipping. If you want to grab the '10 model, expect to pay anywhere from the high $400s to $520 (peak season pricing) for the board from what I've seen of typical NS pricing. What size Legacy R where you looking for?
I was looking at the 159 or 161, but I'm not sure what I think of it. I don't do hardcore park, but I do like to hit it up at least once every day I ride. Dogfunk has the 159 heritage x in stock, but I'm a little short on cash to buy it now. If it sells out before I get the money I'd like a backup choice. Its looking to me like either this year or next years Heritage would be what I'm most looking for.
