|linvillegorge||I'm not sure what you're asking to be honest. You already have a Skunk Ape, are you looking for something to compliment it or something to replace it? In terms of replacing it, NS doesn't really have anything all that similar in their lineup. My recommendation would probably be the Heritage X.|

|jdang307||Pick out a few boards, and then ask how they compare to the Skunk Ape. Hopefully someone will have experience on both.|

*Please be aware that none of the three boards listed above are available here in the Twin Cities right now except for one Cobra and it is a 158 non "X"...

All of our boards have multi-glass construction with a sheet of biaxial, uni and pretensioned fiberglass. The Ripsaw has all this plus 2-sheets of a burly +/-45 degree fiberglass laminate. I think the Ripsaw has the flex you're looking for but find out for yourself. I would be willing to meet you at the Basin and let you use one of my personal boards. The mashed taters are so tasty on Pali right now. You would be doing yourself an injustice by not getting up there another time this season. Send me a PM and let me know if you want to meet up.
Another stiffer board in our line is the Chairman. I think a lot of guys coming off Skunk Apes are going to like this board as well, especially the 173! The Chairman features a carbon X that runs from outside insert to outside insert to outside insert stiffen the mid-flex of the board in a long turn and extended carbon V's on the bottom of the core.
