Just got my first board.

I just spent 250$ on a 2012 Never Summer Legacy 156 (White) with a pair of Burton Mission bindings.

I spent my entire first season just riding demo boards and working on the basics before I decided I was going to invest into the sport.

Anything about this board that I should look out for or should it be a decent board for someone going into their second season?

What is the major issue? Do you know or have you just heard from the grapevine? It is just a mid-wide version of the SL and I haven't heard too much negative about the SL. So a little more elaboration would help so perhaps I could mitigate said "crapper"

Unfortunately, text is not the best medium for sarcasm.

Stoked for you! That is a classy setup.

Now to the important stuff. Pictures

Even the best gear can ride better when you take the time to tweak the setup and get it mounted perfectly, centerred up, etc. What boots are you riding? What size?

One small tidbit to be aware of. NS boards have relatively fast bases, so you're going to find yourself accelerating down the slope a lot faster than you're used to (especially compared to crap rentals). Be prepared for it.


Error 404. Coffee not found.

Well, last season I was able to get on a NS Premier F1 demo and a Revolver demo from one of the local shops. They were pretty well worn boards, but I could still notice a huge difference in performance and response from the boards from the other rentals I had used before, mostly various Burton models.

Actually, if there is one mainstream snowboard manufacturer with faster bases than Never Summer it is Burton...
