what if it were your only board? I ask because I plan on selling the Evo. I just don't have the ability to get out on the mountain a TON and can't justify two boards.

Then it becomes a much more interesting dilemma. Honestly, if I lived on the east coast, the only board I'd own is my Evo.

haha, I'm pretty sure I am getting rid of the Evo. Its a 153 and I def want to get a more stable board. Like I said, I hardly ever go to the park and after a trip to Colorado a yr ago, I just fell in love with "free riding" and just taking on what the mountain has in its natural environment. So, I want to have a board that can handle those trips as well.

are you set on a Never Summer? There are a lot of other boards out there that would suit you well. In fact just about every brand makes at least one model that would suit the "do everything" desire you have.

I am not 100% set on it, I already have a NS and love their build quality and their version of reverse camber.

I am also interested in Never Summer, but saw a lot of different reverse camber profiles and hybrid camber profiles. I found this thread that might help you

If the majority of your time is East Coast with an occasional trip out west, the SL can handle that fine.

Arbor Coda is fun, with griptech (flatbasing on ice might seem a little sketchy).

But if it's build quality you want, the SL can handle Colorado just fine.

What about something from Smokin? Bulletproof construction people say. A mellow version of Magne. 3 year warranty.

I have my eye on a superpark. Perhaps when I find one on sale

I have not actually heard of anything from that brand.

I think I have ruled the Heritage out for sure. It seems to be a bit more stout that I need. Now I am deciding between the SL and the Cobra.

What about the Proto CT?
The Arbor Coda looks good too.

I want a more freeride oriented board. Already have the evo (if I decide to keep it) for park/freestyle stuff.
