Default Clearance = time for a new board

Hey guys

So as of now I'm riding a older GNU carbon high beam and I'm looking to upgrade. & seeing as how it's clearance time I figured why not grab a board now.

So I've been doing some research and I'm really interested in the Burton channel boards, so I've looked into a few of those boards.
I really like the twin and the operator
But I've also looked into the Neversummer SL-R which is very tempting.

I realize that if I go for the channel boards I'm going to need new bindings but I was already going to buy new ones anyway.(Riding some old flows I grabbed off of a buddy)

What I'm really looking for though is something I can take across most of the mountain, hittin kickers, into the pipe, maybe hit a few rails.


And I'm thinking 161 cause my current board is 155 and I feel I've out grown it

Board Shop is listed as a Never Summer dealer (through High Octane), but I don't usually go there since I find there are better/cheaper stores elsewhere in the city.

I completely forgot about Board Room Shop! Prices aren't bad, and I think I can find better on many items locally, but at least now I know where to get an NS board next year when I want to add to the quiver! How was the shipping (both cost and speed)?

Ohh they still have a Ride Machete in 155... Tempting!

Yea they are listed but they aren't. I asked the guy when I was there and all he said was that the guy who worked at the shop tried to get it or something.

and actually they have free shipping on orders over 100 bucks Including sales and boards so shipping was free. I only ordered it the other day but it should be here in a week

I was actually just in 2 of their stores today, and that Machete was still there, but may not be (someone was seriously considering it when I left). That Evo-R will most likely be mine if it's still there in a few weeks.
