Slush Puppie What happened to the SL? Very different design than the test board I saw in Jan with red/yellow top sheet. The Proto looks a bit better in person. Pretty dull but Ok.

However, I suggest buying a 157 lotus and just force her to try it. If she hates it, sell it to me!!! I need a pow board.


I wish all the boards had the logo on the base instead of saying never summer. It looks so much nicer.
She rides a 144 so a 157 will be a bit of a handful.

I prefer the logo to the text too.

Definitely not scaling back. They're relatively recent into the production split game. Prior to the last couple of years, all splits were special order items.

Yeah, me too. I was thinking the same thing. I got the 2012 in white and I love it.

CheeseForSteeze Best art on the Summit, Premier F1, Lotus and Infinity. I do like the sleek, minimalist designs of the SL/Legacy, Raptor/X and Heritage/X. I think the Proto CT looks like the back-splash modern design you'd see in a power point presentation or on a corporate website; weak.

The Cobra still looks really lame, IMO. Something about the logo just looks silly. It has too much detail, too many textures. It just doesn't fit.

03SVTCobra Heritage and Proto are on my hit list as soon as I can order!

jdang307 my wife was the same. stiff cambered small roxy board old as hell 10 years at least.

Finally got her on a DC Biddy but wanted to get her a Pandora (couldn't find one). She would not have liked the Pandora. she's a chick, the graphics are all she has to go on (I did the research).

Get her on a softer alt camber board. So much easier. My wife loves it and gets it now.

dreampow yeah the pandora is not the best graphics wise, I really like the look of infinity though, looks like a sweet board as its basically an SL for women.

My wife rides a flow elation and its fairly stiff posi camber, I suggested the infinity as her birthday present for this year (September). She said no thanks.

How can I convince her she'll have much more fun on it and it'll be much easier for her to initiate turns.

Guess I could try and get her on one at a demo now NS are here in Japan.
