HI Guys, Anybody else here just buy a new board (end of season sale maybe) and are staring at it waiting for winter?

What did you get?

:laugh: I feel like that even though one of mine (Jones Flagship 158) is not new, got it in January but still eager to get on it. In the course of the season my confidence made a huge step foreward on it and I'm curious how the learning curve will continue. So yes, I'm staring at it almost every day :D

The other one (Ride Farah 153) I bought only recently, had only 3 days on it so still very curious to get to know it's characteristics better.

What's your object of desire?

I bought a LibTech 157 T.Rice towards the end of the season and only got to ride it a few times so I'm really eager for next season to start. I was a little concerned with the CRC profile since I had ridden pure camber boards my whole life but the transition was pretty easy and the deck is a blast. :)

i'm seriously debating getting something noodley to go with my SL. Was thinking of an Arbor Blacklist, Westmark, or Draft if I can find one.

If I do find one, I'll be in the same boat you guys are in :D

Snagged a GNU Space Case at a season-end clearout, which I haven't ridden yet.

No, not staring at it though.
Boards are put away until the snow returns.

Actually, I'm impressed that I still check this forum daily even in the off season!

I've been staring at the new SL and Proto HD trying to decide which to get.
No brainer unless you don't wanna spend the extra cash (which, if a concern, would pretty much eliminate NS lol, get the damn proto).

Well the cash isn't really a concern, I just heard the SL was better in powder. That's what got me stuck. But the Proto looks awesome.

Bought a Proto in early March and was fortunately able to get out on it for one spring session. Absolutely love the thing.

Got a good deal on a Gnu Billy Goat 162 and it's sitting there as I decide whether it's wide enough for my size 11 kickers. I think it will be fine but I might switch it for an NS Legacy 159 or T Rice Pro 157.
