AW YEAH, just got back from pickin' up my brand spankin' new Never Summer Heritage 156!!

Fuck ya, bring on the pow, I'm fuckin' stoked to say the least.

I know for a fact, this board isn't made out of Papier-mâché.
But, since my luck has been suckin' donkey balls lately, I'm gonna try even harder not to fuck this one up

You guys should be grabbin' up those other 2, you can't even find a used one for under $400 around here.

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

Hmm. Can't say I've seen them in town anywhere either, when I was looking for them the other month.

That being said, I'm pretty sure my buddy got his f's from showcase last winter...

Summit or Mountain Rider maybe?

The Circle perhaps? Though I hate that shop with a passion

Whats up west coast-ers?

Heading out to REv and KH mid Jan and hoping powder continues to keep coming

Pretty random question...but I just picked up a brand new 154 NS Proto. I have no need for it...but the price was too good to pass up. Currently I have that and an Arbor Westmark 153...im torn on what board I should bring out west...

Bring both and leave the Proto with me! I think either will be fine, though neither are all mountain boards by the looks of it. I assume if you are coming out west you won't be in the park much. If I was going to pick I would take the stiffer of the two to tackle the steeper and deeper out here.

yea...both are freestyle oriented for sure...what I didn't mention was that I'm only 130lbs...so my weight makes free riding on both of these boards (so im told) very doable. I took the westie out to Stowe VT and it was pretty decent...though I found myself a bit more tired after long groomer runs b/c of the lack of camber (still held an edge very well)...but im very curious how the full centre reverse makes out in some powder.

If anyone signed up for the Sportchek team assist thing, one of the coupons is 20% off, even on already marked down prices.

So if it's 50% off, that little coupon makes it 70% off.

It might be worth it to stop by there 2morra?

TT

Copped a new pair of Burton Ambush in a 13 today to replace the ancient size 14 Rulers I picked up just to get rolling. Big improvement in fit and comfort, but not quite as quick responsive feeling. Went out to Hemlock for the first time, got a free pass when I got there...

Was in a hurry and didn't bother adjusting my bindings to compensate. Found this on my way back to the car:



These are an old set of Burton Custom Brew I picked up in a package deal with my board. Might be able to get a non-matching replacement, but should I start shopping for a new pair or just pick up the pair of year old barely used Custom I saw on Craigslist for $80? Just so I can ride in the meantime and possibly have a backup for the long term...
