After 17 years of shredding, and countless boards from some of the best companies that have been around, i've found the best!!! Many companies have come out with amazing shred sticks, but none seem to last, due to the company isn't around any longer, or the boards have been altered or discontinued. Either way, Niche has got the formula right, and is keeping it that way. This company is bound to succeed! If you want a board that is wicked in any condition, whether you care about the environment or not, Niche is the way to go. There forward thinking and all about progression, while saving the planet one board at a time. Trust this veteran, YOU WILL ENJOY THESE BOARDS!!!!
