Review Detail
The Legacy was the third board I tested on the week we were in Breck last Easter. Having travelled via NY I didn't want to lug my coffin-sized board bag around so was happy to rent with a view to possibly buying a cheap board and slipping it into my brother-in-law's bag to shp home.

I first tested the Skate Banana which for me had too much flex, then the Custom flying V, the only one they had left was too short/narrow for me so on my sister-in-law's recommendation (she's a Breck resident) I tried the Legacy 163. Straight away the board felt great with enough pop and flex to throw around but stiff enough to feel solid flatting it down pistes. My previous board is a 159 but the added length (I'm 6' 3") wasn't very noticeable. The rocker camber is excellent and felt much more stable both in the park and on the piste, plus it's wider than my other ride so last week in Cham in waist deep pow it glided with ease.

The fact that I picked it up for a snip at $250 just toppped it off. Would highly recommend NS boards, added bonus is very few people ride them in Europe so you've got that individuality factor.
