Anyone feels strange riding a white board?

hey guys

i am getting a NS SL and they have the 158white and the 161 black.

as i have a 161 the jam i was tempted in getting the 158.

but i dont know if a white board wont be strange to ride as it is the same colour as snow

will it blend to much?

any ideias?

White is fine, the only real indifference is that once you get a few surface scratches they will tend to stick out more when they have some dirt in them.

Be very careful if you buy a white board. Use a leash at all times as just taking it off on the hill to say, take a whiz, it can completely disappear. I highly recommend buying some high viz reflective decals and carrying a flash light. If your board spontaneously disappears on you, shine the light into the snow and you will see the decals blinking in the light. Or even better? Get an LED multicolour canine safety light and put it on your binding.

both my 11 et classic and my 12 proto have mostly white noses, and i find it to be totally disconcerting vs having a dark board. its not that big of a deal or anything, but if you are stomping a landing, its a wierd boardless sensation to not see anything but your foot and white. i stickered the white nose of my et to deal with it, and the proto has a little paint, wish there was more tho.

probably if you arent a rookie like me you never look down.

I lived there for several years. I'll be up there a few times this season. I'll look you up when I get there - we'll shake hands and go ride. Until then, we shall continue.
