Tried the 157 Premier F1-R yesterday in the goddamn rain...and zero visibility fog at the top...i gotta say i really liked the board. It felt great and will likely be my next purchase, either late this year if they are still available(doubtful) or get next years model...

Was funny though there was a resort jockey talking crap about the graphics on NS boards and how they are phoned in. I just kept my mouth shut and didnt say anything along the lines of "Not everyone wants their board to look like a graffiti artist shit on it", which was what all the other companies Ski's nearby looked like he pointed at in comparison.

yah NS not much in the grafix department, but there's nothing wrong with keeping it simple. I like the minimalist stylings.

Anyone know if the slr is so fast due to a certain base design or because of my wax? It seemed like myself and other people on the mountain that had SLR's were going MUCH faster than almost everyone else.

Finally got to ride my 151 SLR this past weekend at Jay Peak.

What can I say that hasn't been said about it? It simply is a badass board for what I need it to do. I'm happy with my purchase and look forward to shredding around the mountain on it.

Definitely agree there. I DON'T want some 10 year old's drawing of somebody taking a shit or ripping the wings off a pigeon or piles of skulls on ANYTHING I own. I'm not some preteen out to impress his mind numb pals.

Snow or sun, not rain

I can ride the slopes with snow, the streets with sun, but rain just plain sucks.

for the record, I'd be cool with an NS board featuring a pile of skulls, as long as the old-school polar bear was hoarding over them, jaws dripping blood.

Or, the old-school polar bear wielding two chainsaws, whilst chasing down a bunch of gapers.

Supposing they don't adopt either of these plans for their 2011 boards, I'm OK with the eagle emblem or variations thereof.

I don't really give a shit about graphics.
Never summer buyers are generally more about substance over style, and with a board that has a 3 year warranty, you dont want graphics that go out of style.

The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.
Buy it... Ride it... Love it...

Agreed. But still, the polar bears on my NS Legacy are bad as fuck.
