NS Vario Technology

Hey all. I've tried to do some research on this, but not much luck... I am currently looking at grabbing another deck (this will be my first full season of riding) and once I convince my GF that having only one deck is not enough, I will be out the next day buying one.

Anyway, I'm leaning towards the NS SL-R or F1-R (not sure which one), however I can't seem to get a good grasp of what this Vario tech does. I've seen boards that seem to have a waving edge designed to help carving (can't remember the name of this tech). Is this similar or something completely different?

Also, between the F1-R and the SL-R, what are you're guys/gals thoughts? I do pretty much all mountain riding, hit some kickers and working on 3s to throw in some style, but not really interested in park. In a couple years I'm moving back to the east coast and I figure I'll hit up park then. While I'm out west, I just wanna tear up the whole mountain. Trees are my new favourite thing. Based on all that, I'm leaning towards the F1-R.

Hmm.. go for SL-R! F1-R much stiffer and more freeride stick. As you are being a rookie you need smth more variable and forgiving. Plus if you wanna have board for freestyle stuff SL looks much better.

Thanks for reply. I appreciate the input.

Sorry to forgot to ask one more question;

I am size 13 feet. Will either of these boards even be big enough for me? Currently I am riding a Salomon Special Magnum, which is a wide board.

You'd want the Legacy-R, which is the wider version of the SL-R. I don't think the F1-R comes in wide but it may be wide enough anyway.
