I currently own a Gnu Carbon Credit 2010 and Lib Tech skate banana 2010 and a few old Capita boards, however this is the best board i've ever ridden. I freaking love, I demo'd it and then decided to buy it. The board has this catch free feeling which makes it a joy to ride and its so easy to press boxes and such yet it is so so so stable at high speeds. The rocker and reverse camber is awesome, I cant even explain it. I love my Mervin boards and if you cant get a Never Summer get a lib tech or Gnu however, The Never summer board is my favorite board and I will always go back to them. Just because not a ton of people know about them and because they are a smaller company doesn't mean they don't make good stuff. Go out and ride one because nothing can compare.
