BA has been riding forever. As big of a fan as I am of NS boards, I'm starting to understand why BA and Nivek steer people away from them. For one, there are a lot of small companies making great boards. Two, plenty of people are gonna suggest a NS anyway. Three, NS is starting to get a little uppity IMO. Not the guys in the factory, but the reps they send out are pretty much certified douchebags. Never met one that didn't rub me the wrong way and give off the vibe that their shit didn't stink and if you don't agree well then fuck you we're gonna sell all the boards we make anyway.
