How much do you weigh again? 166 wide is a big boy...

Alright, that makes sense then. Beastly size for a tank of a dude.

Remind me not to mess with you if we ever ride together.

Look around the net. Can't imagine there is a huge market for a 166wide Legacy.

Ha no worries. I've been pretty mellow since I've domesticated myself.

I look and look and look, they are all 509.95. Just waiting for one to go on sale. But in general, a good board for me you think? Like I said, I don't do park stuff and probably fall under the improver/intermediate level rider at this point. The one thing I know is that my current board feels unstable and washes out occasionally on me whenever I try to pick up speed. Of course, it's entirely possible that it's user-error but I'm still convinced that the board I have is too soft for what I want to do.

Cool, just saw that. Demos are a safe buy in terms of condition?

I would shoot them a message and ask for photos. Also, it's worth contacting NS and asking about the reputation of this dealer. NS keeps close ties with their dealers.

Also, I am assuming it is one of the lesser used sizes. There aren't too many riders looking for 166w boards.

Another option to consider is the Heritage. It's going to be much more stable than the SL.

I might actually recommend it over the SL because the SL is still a freestyle board.

to sabatoa: It's a 2012 demo 166 Legacy. It looks a little rough in the pic, but not too bad.

Ok thanks, that's exactly the kind of advice I am looking for Leo. When I use those online size selectors I always get something in the 170 range, but I figured I'd play it safe by only jumping up a couple cms at this point. The larger width is important though. I have a 26.2 waist on this board and still get a bit more than 1.5 inches on both sides of my board. Not a problem on blues, but sometimes can be on the few steeps I wander over to.

Uh, ok so...sort of Michigan related since it involves Leo, but what happened to the Never Summer design team? It's like it never even existed, everything has been wiped from the site with no explanation? Is it still happening under the radar?
