Never Summer's...what's the story??
 
I hate to even ask the question, because I don't want to offend anyone...or accuse anyone of anything. But, there is a TON of talk around here about how awesome Never Summer boards are. It also seems that some of the members around here are pretty hooked in with NS. So, my question is this....are they really that great or are there a lot of people around here getting hooked up by NS or a combination of both??

This forum has a MASSIVE bias towards Neversummer. There are some members who will steer people towards everything else though, which is nice.

I'm almost embarrassed that I ride NS... seems like such a cliche. I'm waiting for someone to ask if i'm on sbf.com just cos i've got an evo.

Not baggin em, but i'd like to try something else when i get the chance

The longer you lurk the more you will learn that this forum is like a Never Summer circle jerk. Apparently a few of the members on here are friends with a NS rep who is also on here and are always testing their boards. I would never buy one and their boards never seem to change, same boring ass graphics every year.

I just think the snowboard hipsters are funny. 99% of the NS "hate" I see is just because other people like them. Plenty of other good boards out there, ride one of them.

Before when I was using a Rome board, I didn't understand the hype of a Never Summer either. My local shop gave me a great deal on a Revolver and the moment I strapped into my Revolver I understood every bit of hype, the perfect combination of flex and response is amazing. The east got a 21 inch dump back in December, and I went out not expecting much out of a park board but the float I had in powder was something else. There was no problem staying up and the board destroys everything from ice to powder to the parks. My only recommendation is to try one before you buy one, a couple of my friends have tried it and they either love the board or hate it.

The graphics may not change much, but maybe the tech does :dunno: Graphics are no reason to avoid a certain board or board company. I get the impression NS makes really good quality boards (ok, I know they're overhyped on this forum). They're a bit too pricey for me at this point, but I actually LIKE their graphics. So there :P

Can't answer your questions but NS is like the iPhone of boards.





Let's just say I have an Android.

I give big respects a smaller American company like NS, even though I've never ridden one of their boards. I have a friend who works for Flow, he used to work for Ride, until they downsized and moved stuff to China. Similar to what K2 did, in order to survive in the ski biz. By the way, he has his own 10k lbs. Press. surprising what one can make with their own hands...

I have stuck with it because Im a broke fucking kid. They seem to be pretty durable from my experience and I like the hybrid camber profile. Now excuse me, fap fap fap!

I've actually owned a never summer. I liked it well enough.

Right now my favorite board is probably the Jones Carbon Flagship.
