I don't ride as much as I wish I could because I play college bball but like I said above it's been ridden many more times than my brothers k2. I also have a friend I ride with who has a ride kink and the topsheet is all cracked
He has ridden the same number of days that I have

Well I can tell you with certainty that you are incorrect. Like I said earlier my brothers parkstar has only been ridden 6 or 7 days while my NS has been ridden probably 60. We both ride park all day. Also, if the board is heavier than it's only by a small amount because I feel no difference when carrying/riding both. I see plenty of guys throwing big spins off kickers with their NSs too

init Hmm that thing has to be a noticable % heavier. I'd rather have a chipped board than a heavy one

TreyDay i ride a k2 parkstar... and i have taken it up about 5 times this year and it is already starting to chip on a lot of the edges. im thinking about getting a NS next season...

think that til you try timing rotations on the two, swingweight is a factor to some peoples ride style

turbospartan Another reason is that to make it easier to spin (360's, etc.), you want to reduce the nose/tail weight.

snowjab the old ns weigh a ton, the 2011 SL isnt as bad. I get 10-15 runs a day when i go and the old NS would take a toll on your legs on chair.
