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!

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

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...
