I have a Nitro Punisher 159 from like '02. For how terribly i treat that machine it's held its own. The first problem i've had occurred last week: cracked sidewall behind my front heel. I still ride it on 50' park jumps. There has been no peel and it still punches back! All i'm trying to say is these guys make a great board and the Wiig is not going to disappoint you.
