Never Summer Legacy 159 vs. Yes the Greats 160
 
which one you prefer for a all-mountain freestlye wide board?

I would skip the Yes The Greats board because of that stupid serrated edge.

I've ridden several models of the SL (narrow version of the Legacy) and it is a solid all-mountain freestyle board. From carving groomers, to jumps, to jibbing on boxes and rail.

I've never ridden the YES board, but I've ridden several boards with magnatraction and I don't like them... it bites too early and too hard, and makes a really rough carve (slowing you down). YES apparently has "Tragna Maction" which is clearly a copy of it (I am assuming they are licensing the technology for Lib/Gnu/Mervin). Also, I'm not sold on the recent return of the Asym sidecut tech... that was popular back in the early-'90s and Mervin is trying to make it fashionable again like Bellbottoms... I'm not convinced.

That being said, two of my friends have Gnu Park Pickles and they like them.

I've never ridden a neversummer.

I have a yes, original great dudes and it's an awesome all mountain freestyle board. It was a lot of board for me, but it's fast, stiffer, and the asym is awesome.

I actually like the ultimate grip (the serrated edge), it helps hold an edge w.out throwing you into a turn. Magnetraction would be cool too, if that's not a typo.
