I dig the Rocker/Camber design because it has given me the confidence to progress my riding without the fear of catching a nasty edge. I can (and have said ) say that I know for a fact that this board has saved my ass on many occasions when I know I should have bit it but somehow stayed upright. The board is forgiving as hell.
I can hear Angry Snowboarder telling me "Learn to ride, dumbass" and he's right and I'm working on it. My NS Legacy with RC design is helping to keep me stable and progressing.
(exhausted hiking with the board all afternoon, no lifts)
Side note; I'd love a Proto, I'd like to expand my free style and take advantage of that true twin.
'12 NS Legacy 163 Trace Stats
Days on snow 2015/2016 season:
Man I dug this one up from when I first got the board 2 seasons back... when I still had long hair. Damn it I miss my long locks.
I had taken 9 years off (not a voluntary break), and between the RC tech and the playfulness of the SL I was able to get back at it without worrying too much about catching an edge. The SL was firm when I needed it and the vario grip was nice on some of the crappy snow days at Baker last year (Dumped 2 weeks straight before I got there... then nothing while I was there).
New toy, so obviously no action shots yet. So stoked to get out on this. I believe this is my 7th NS with R.C. tech, starting with the 08/09 SL-R, and I'm so sold. Each board has it's own personality, but also felt instantly familiar and comfortable. I've ridden a lot of other boards over the last few years, but I always come back to Never Summer because they're so dialed, and the boards just feel so "right". Nothing else comes close for me.
