Basically I don't have a Never Summer. But, if I did, I'd keep it on my bed.

Doesn't hurt that it also goes perfectly with my bindings and my boots
What a sweet set up!

I'm interested in the Nike Kaiju boot. Been on 32 TM2 for years and tried some of the Kaiju on. Loved the fit and lacing system. How do you like them? Afraid to pull the trigger as I love TM2's.

Thanks so much for the support and stoked you love the versatility of your Proto.

Hey Vman just 2cents on the topic from me: 32s fit me well cuz I got a wider flat foot and just seems to go in there nice. Nike on the other hand has always run narrow and just don't work for my feet. You may have a more normal foot than me which can fit both brands, just putting it out there sir.

I will happily put on my gear and go out back and do something for a pic if it allows me to enter tho lol!
Hey Henry,

Congrats and thanks for the purchase of your new SL! I'm sure you're going to love the SL and no matter where you travel/ride it will be the only board you'll need.

For sure, go ahead and enter. Post a pic of your new set up and tell us why you decided to go with a NS.

Here is a pic of my Never Summer Evo with Burton Malavita Bindings and my gf's Never Summer Lotus and Burton Lexa Bindings. She's a bit of a copycat. Haha.

Unfortunately, I haven't had an opportunity to ride my board yet. It just sits there in my room torturing me. lol. I did have an opportunity to ride someone else's Evo at Lake Placid last year though. I found it incredibly playful and surprisingly stable for such a soft board. I couldn't be happier with my purchase and I can't wait to post more thoughts on the board as I get more riding time in.

I love my SL because I can go anywhere on the mountain, from the park to the pow, and it handles like a boss. The vario grip handles the east coast ice and spits out steeze.

Getting ready to drop in in the Hakuba, Japan backcountry



Enjoying a post ride foot onsen after a powder day at Nozawa Onsen, Japan.

What I love about the RC system especially on the SL is the versatility. You can play on the flats, float in the pow yet still lay down long fast carves on the groomers whether they be courdroy or hard pack. It has definitely changed the way I enjoy my riding in all conditions.

It gives you the best of both worlds.

Current ride - 2010 SL with 2010 Salomon Relay Series, with Burton Ultra Air Heal and Salomon Dialogue boots


Loved the Raptor and the Cobra when I had a chance to test them out earlier this year. Great boards for their respective riding type.

Evo 152 I picked up last season a couple of weeks after a tour with Vman. Love the board and even though it is a park board - I love taking it all over the mountain. I actually enjoy the flexibility when I'm in the trees.



Hopefully I don't get dq'd for having it next to a.... lib
