Neversummer builds their boards like tanks. Only board that I've ever had that has lasted me over 2 seasons.I finally thought i was going with the darkstar until i started reading about the ns sl. I am an all mountain snowboarder who wants to start getting into park and freestyle. Is the extra $100 worth it to get a NS SL? I would love to hear some of your thoughts
When you say "responsive" in the park do you mean like pop?If you want something more responsive and forgiving in the park, I'd go Darkstar since it is more of a park board than the NS. Many seemed to think it would be difficult to set up the SL board to work really well in the park. Since you are transitioning into park, you probably want something more park focused and softer.
