Fair enough.

Me on a nice natural hit in the Japanese slack country.

Never summers RC gives you the playfulness and float of rocker with the precision and control of camber.

I ride mostly powder and the quick easy edge to edge transitions just make things easier in the steep and deep tree lines.

I get more float on a 157 with a centered stance than I did on my old 161 cambered deck with a setback.

When carving you get it up on edge and the camber zones kick in.

It still carves extremely well even with the rocker between the feet.

I could use another proto for sure, but if I win any chance of getting another NS deck to compliment my proto?

Loving the black by the way, way nicer than the regular version.

I dig the Rocker/Camber design because it has given me the confidence to progress my riding without the fear of catching a nasty edge. I can (and have said ) say that I know for a fact that this board has saved my ass on many occasions when I know I should have bit it but somehow stayed upright. The board is forgiving as hell.

I can hear Angry Snowboarder telling me "Learn to ride, dumbass" and he's right and I'm working on it. My NS Legacy with RC design is helping to keep me stable and progressing.




(exhausted hiking with the board all afternoon, no lifts)

Side note; I'd love a Proto, I'd like to expand my free style and take advantage of that true twin.

Man I dug this one up from when I first got the board 2 seasons back... when I still had long hair. Damn it I miss my long locks.

I had taken 9 years off (not a voluntary break), and between the RC tech and the playfulness of the SL I was able to get back at it without worrying too much about catching an edge. The SL was firm when I needed it and the vario grip was nice on some of the crappy snow days at Baker last year (Dumped 2 weeks straight before I got there... then nothing while I was there).

New toy, so obviously no action shots yet. So stoked to get out on this. I believe this is my 7th NS with R.C. tech, starting with the 08/09 SL-R, and I'm so sold. Each board has it's own personality, but also felt instantly familiar and comfortable. I've ridden a lot of other boards over the last few years, but I always come back to Never Summer because they're so dialed, and the boards just feel so "right". Nothing else comes close for me.
