New NS F1 Premier
 
This is my second NS board and I simply wanted to say how bad ass I think this board is. If anyone wants a real review i'll give one..but quite simply, if you're thinking about buying a freeride/pow/allmtn board...this is it...I would seriously consummate with it if capable...that is all.

For me it was between that and the NS SL. I liked the weight of the SL and also a bit less stiff. But yea i heard awesome things about the premier

I'm sure you could rub up against it sufficiently enough. Um..not that I'm speaking from experience, of course! :p

What were you riding before? I'm looking into the F1, but am nervous about getting away from a traditional camber board....

yeah sick board. i've got about 100 days on my 2010 premier and i'm in love. i was debating between the sl and premier, but thought the premier would be better suited to my love of speed, steeps, and pow. man was i right!! i will admit the sl is a bit more playful, but i have a omatic wigglestick to fill that void. i will be picking up a proto ct as soon as they're released. seems like a perfect board for resort days and all mountain fun. should help to fill out my quiver.....

Omatic Wigglestick....goof around park board

Never Summer Proto CT.....all-mountain fun

Never Summer Premier F1-r....freeride/pow board

Option Freeplus Splitboard....backcountry goodness

what size should I buy, Im going to use the premier for backcountry and glades (east coast) . im 5`9 - 5`10 and weight 170 lbs

I currently ride a 155 and like how nimble it is. I emailed never summer but they never replied.

I'm no authority on sizes...however if you currently ride a 155 and I am assuming its more of an all mtn board..I would say the 157 would fit you fine...unless you are still growing and you plan on having the board for a long time(NS boards have a 3yr warranty, right? :)) then consider the 159...and surely nothing larger :)...as I understand it...with NS's tech, you don't need to get a board as long as you would think even if geared primarily for pow...you can get away with a slightly shorter board, which has its obvious benefits over a long cadillac :)

PS...you probably wont even visibly/feel a real difference between a 155 and 157...and probably minimal vs a 159...
