Lookie what I just found....

You may have seen my post about my demos of the SL-R and Premier at Breck and I really fell in love with the Premier. It is so damn fast, stable and has great float with the rocker, slight pintail and set back.
Well today I swung by Blades in Soho and to my delight they had a 161 and 163 Premier for 40% off! I know how hard it is to find these boards and getting it at this price I had to walk out with it. I went for the 163, the size I had in Breck ( I am 6'2", 185). This will be a perfect partner for my 158 Evo-R for when I want to rip it and when I head out west. I guess I am officially a NS whore with two snowboards and a longboard.

i got my premier 20% off at the beginning of the season and i thought that was an awesome deal. 40% off is awesome! as you already know you're going to love this board! rips the entire mountain. i'm looking to pick up a circuit or evo to compliment it as my park stick.

Awesome deal! I was very stoked when Fedex knocked on my door today with my new Evo 158, that I scored for a sweet price from ebay.

Never Summer Evo-R Snowboard 158 *~BRAND NEW~* - eBay (item 300400999225 end time Feb-26-10 17:52:05 PST)


It came with "Powdertools Board Shop" stickers, so I guess it came from there. Anyway, I'm as happy as a pig in shit!

I have an 11 in the Burton shrinkage fit. I don't really do wide boards anymore. With a decent stance width and angles it works out.

No, they just held it for 5 days. Mind you the seller listed a value of $51 on the customs form.
