As a whole, I don't think the graphics for next year are as strong as this year's, which I thought were outstanding. I do think that pictures never do the quality of their topsheets justice though. I thought this year's SL looked cool when I first saw pics, but in person I think it's one of the best looking boards I've seen. Generally, I like that NS keeps their graphics somewhat more "adult" looking if you will, though I agree with their move to make the Evo a bit more flashy. As for their tech, I couldn't be more sold.
