I would guess a few days based on what I'm seeing with Chomps and his Proto and my experience with new boots/binding setup this season.

I just wonder how the difference in camber/rocker profiles figure into this. I'm going from a full rocker to the Heritage, which also has a much better and faster base. In addition there is a size jump from a 164 to a 166. So I'm curious as to just how different it will feel and whether I'll be catching edges all afternoon or not.

Edit: And I forgot to mention that my old board has a flex of 2 out of 10 on Burton's scale, while the Heritage is a 5.5 on NS's scale. So there's that too...

It's shouldn't be that bad at all...a year back is pretty sad, especially for someone with 6 season's in. Take note with your current setup on your binding placements so you can transfer them over easy and it won't feel foreign to you when you ride the first time. I wouldn't mess around with adjusting that until you are comfortable with the new board.

When I first rode my NS Sl my riding IMPROVED by a year. There was no adapting. It made everything I like to do easier.

I consider it one of the best purchases I have ever made.

That's interesting and good to hear. Thanks for the feedback guys. I'll be sure to post how it goes sometime after the weekend.

I just saw some Burton seconds for 50% off. I have to keep telling myself that "No, I don't actually need a Sherlock..." or a Superhero...

I know how you feel. I am tempted to just pick up a cheap Camp 7 from Wiredsport just for the heck of it to see how they ride.

I would find this acceptable if my wife hacked into your account and posted that...but that is highly unlikely.

If she's anything like my wife, even IF she said that, you should probably be highly suspicious and not do it.
