This website is getting dangerous to my available cash flow. Seriously. I feel like a crack head in a cocoa field.

Yea, I got a ton of compliments on the EVO's graphics. Even from people who had no clue what Never Summer was. Naturally, I had to explain to them what the company is about

I thought I read a thread that said if you order a NS this late in the season, you may get lucky and get the new graphics? Leo or anyone else know if this is accurate?

My buddy Jay has 10.5 boots and he rode my Proto with the same waist width just fine. You need to scratch wide model boards off your list. I saw that you weigh 210lbs. That means you will likely be riding the 158-164cm range. I can't think of any board in this size range that is too narrow for your boot size. I mean, I don't know all the measurements by heart, but I don't recall co-workers with even size 11 boots having any issues demoing boards in this size range.

David Z has size 11 boots and he's been on wide boards up until now. I invited him to test fest with me and we demoed boards from 155-160cm normal width. He didn't have any issues other than 155 was too small lengthwise for his comfort. Needless to say, he now owns a new normal width board and said he doesn't want wides anymore.
Thanks for your input Leo. I am now scratching the Gnu/Lib Tech board on my list for 2012, and heading to the NS direction.
Yes, I am currently 200ish pounds, but I can drop my weight down to 190ish pretty easily just to ride a shorter board. The 159 Carbon Credit I am riding now is a little long for me at the park. I also find it hard to spin with the CC, so I am going to either sell it or keep it as an all mountain ride.
Since, the Proto CT is on the stiffer side, do you think I can get away with a 154 or should I stick with the 157? I will be using it for 80% Park and 20% Looking for terrain on the grommers.

Keep up with the good work, and keep those reviews comin'!

Poppy field? You can't expect logic out of me in the morning. I work nights.

Edit:

Nevermind... seems my rant was from a belief in a myth...

Cocoa plant and coca plant are different lol.

Still, the chocolate thing about recovering addicts is true.
