Well I was just about to bite the bullet and invest in the 2012 Never summer SL, (which my mates brother has found awesome this season...) When I started hearing about it being 'high maintenence'.
Apparently the board eats wax like no tomorrow and needs doing almost every session, which whilst I don't mind a bit of waxing, would be a right pain.
Do you think the arbor coda would be the better choice now?
I changed my mind on the lib tech rice and trs after demoing and taking chunks out of the base on little branches.
I'm 90% freerider, 5' 10'', 185lbs, Foot size 10.5, Early intermediate.
Thinking the 158? I'm on a 161 now which i suspect is too long.
The 155 might be pushing it at my weight though
My NS base never needed waxing any more frequently than any other sintered board I've owned. My friend's Signal Park is fine, too, which uses the same Durasurf material. Just get whichever board that feels better underfoot to you.
