I've noticed that aswell. But they've been getting hyped by EVERYONE on the net, thus why I bought one to see whats up.
But from the sounds of it they have great quality, made in america, supporting boarders, 3 year warranty, and excellent customer service. Or at least thats what I get from reading everything. How could you not be stoked?
I havent seen much hate anywhere on the net with N.S. They gotta be doing somthing right.
*Edit* Except how the older boards were a little heavy. But thats changed now (appearently)
