I am but I'm not. That is why in my original post I asked next time you are on your hill take a look around and keep a mental note of what you see. I am wondering if it is like this everywhere?

Yes opening days do bring out the die hards and those guys are not likely to ride Burton. I'm definitely going to take another look around as the season progresses (and on different hills) to see if the numbers change.

This is just something that really has me curious!

yea. after christmas when all the kids who's parents got them a board as a xmas present get out on the hill; ride the thing five times; then never go ever again.

Burton has something like 60% market share world wide.

You can really tell NS's marketting(Vince, etc) are getting some good results because i too am seeing a lot more NS boards than i did last year. I saw like 4 people carrying new 2011 NS boards while waiting for the first chair of the season to start...and saw several more with people on my chair throughout the day...

Or maybe im just more aware of NS product designs now than last year lol...

A sample size of 1 is insufficient to make any statistical inferences!

A lot of Burton gear makes it to the hill 2-3 times a year....

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

Just wondering what everyone else is seeing out there?

NeverSummer has been chatted up a LOT in the past 2 years or so. In my opinion, their boards now border on the ridiculous as far as pricing for the current season. I live in Atlanta, and 2 local shops carry NS. 2011 Titans are $500+

I doubt I will ever pay that much for two sticks, much less one!

buy used or last years models?

i get what your saying but the reason other makes are cheaper is because they outsource to china and stuff.. idk about you but ill pay a little extra to know that my board was made in america by americans who take pride in not selling out our economy so they can make profits and lower prices.

just me though. your opinion may vary
