Neversummer proto HD 2014

Hi guys,

My parents got me this board for my birthday.
Problem is i am not an experienced rider.

I have about 15days of total riding.. They simply went online and bought the board after talking with a sales person online..

However i was already looking into buying a never summer board next year after getting some more time under my belt on the snowboard.

Should i keep the board and bite the harder learning process ?

I love the idea of doing natural jumps and switch riding / maybe a little park once i am good enough..

Any help would be appreciated..

it might take more effort to worry about all that than to learn to push the board harder. you got a sweet deck, definitely go out and ride it as much as you can.

A little depends on you but I really doubt you'll have problems. It's more board than you need at your stage but apart from being a fraction stiffer than ideal it's otherwise a very easy board to ride and you will soon appreciate it. Enjoy it!

the new HD's contact points are lifted, whereas the original CT's contact points were...well...I'd say downright unforgiving.

It is still no beginner board, but imo that thing is THE deck. Stoked for you man. Detune the tips about 1-2 inches thru the contact points and have fun. Ride it on a rail it doesn't like flatbasing and neither does your technique coach.

Go ride it. You'll love it. It's a fun board for sure, and it will cover your riding needs well.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Just picked up the Proto HD myself. Can't wait for the season to start down here so I can take it for a spin. Your parents are awesome.
