I'm guessing you're talking about Cataloochie, Beech, Sugar and the like?

I head up to Cat every now and then (about 2 hour drive) since they get snow down a lot sooner than in TN. It's not too bad.

Sure beats the alternative of not riding at all

Just be happy when you actually do have something resembling snow to slide around on.


one of these days I'm going to convince my wife to move away from her family and move out west where I can actually get on some real snow!

Depends on your riding style. The SL/Legacy was a better fit for me.

IMO, the Proto pretty much makes the SL obsolete. I'm not sure why anyone would go SL > Proto if buying new. NS is wise to keep it around as it's been their most popular board, but from an objective standpoint, there's really no reason to pick it over the Proto.

IMO, the NS portfolio is starting to get pretty crowded. If I was a one board guy, for the way I primarily ride, I'd be struggling to choose between the Proto, Cobra, and Heritage. I could make a strong argument for all of them, but I'd probably end up going Cobra. Not sure what the hell that had to do with this thread. Sorry for rambling.

I walk around in 10s for all my street shoes, but because they fit me very well, I wear 32s in a 9.

I have a friend who walks around in 8.5's and wears size 11boots because he puts 2 pairs of thick socks on to ride and then goes and gets wide board too! He crazy!

Everyone everywhere will tell you having boots that fit is the only VERY important part of your equipment. Have bindings that don't fall off and down the hill u go!

Got the bigger ones and they fit really good. In short, I'd say you're fine.
x2. I ride 8.5 in boots and the S/M romes barely make it. I have L/XL on my other board and the fit is a he// of a lot better.

No. We've got 9 libertines and 10 TmTwo's. The both work well in l/xl targa's and force sl's.
