Well, I drank the Never Summer Kool-aid

And it is super tasty and strawberry flavored.

Chris from NS had a demo tent at Sierra at Tahoe last weekend. Wife rode an Infinity and a Pandora and loved them both. The RC tech really suited her riding style and she immediately jumped on it and took off. Absolutely killed it on her first ride on a RC board.

I took an Evo just for fun, wanting to try out something besides the SLR and the Revolver, neither of which I liked last year.

Holy Hell is the Evo fun. I had a blast on it and it was pretty damn stable at speed as well. We went out and bought a 158 Evo and a 145 Infinity.

Absolute blasts to ride. Glad I gave them another shot after last years demos.

I tried the sl-r last season and didn't have that much fun on it either. I wonder what is so different about the evo, is it just the flex?

Congrats! I love my NS boards. I have this year's Revolver-R 156, I thought it was basically just a wider version of the Evo, but I guess if you don't need or usually ride a wider board it might feel odd.

The Evo has pixie cum in it. Seriously pixies jerk off on the cores and that's the difference.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

Awesome...now you and your lady have some sick boards! I've been wanting to try one for the last 2-3 years, but they never have any demo days around here, so I had to bite the bullet and just buy a couple this year.

You'll love them. I've got 3 NSs, and won't ride anything else now.
