Never Summer
 
Hey, I'm hoping one of you guys rides/have ridden (rode?) a Never Summer.

I'm interested in them, but don't really know anything, so critique/advice is very welcome!

5'10, 17, 130 lbs, hopefully still growing, able to do diamonds, and is currently working on parks (hopefully this information is enough; if not, ask!)

Much thanks.

-Tom

I have a custom made Neversummer Summit splitboard. What is it you are looking for?

Bomber boards that are built to take a beating.

I have demoed a couple of boards and really like them. They are over built and they do not put a weight limit on their boards. I rode the premier and SL and one of the two will be my next board. I am leaning towards the SL. They give a 3 year warranty and have great customer service as they have answered all my e-mails...You really cannot go wrong with one...

I usually just freeride, kicking it with friends, but i enjoy jumps (rails are a nono for me). Now, I don't really know much about boards... I just ride. But would a flexible board work for both? I'm not really a speed demon; I just grab them lil bumpies when I can and swerve in and out, having fun.

Hopefully this board could last me a long time (so long that I'll be heli-boarding with it eventually :P).

Sounds like you should look at the sl and heritage if you want to have a freestyle aspect to the board...

I drive a Titan TX and I LIKE IT. I am not good enough to do it justice but it takes care of me. It's just a downhill type board but at 52 I don't care for the park or having weight pulling down on my feet instead of pushing back. I've ran over rocks with only minimal damage to the bottom. I have noticed that folks with rental equipment in lift lines tend to chip the top edges but not bad enough to ruin a good day worrying about it. It handles groomed runs and powder like a ferrari. It will outrun everyone on the greens and keeps me in control on the blues when the kids catch back up. I think a younger rider wouldn't have any trouble outrunning anyone on the mountain with it. If you want to go fast a titan would be a good pick. Never summers are a little heavier but have a tank like reputation for absorbing damaging blows with very few ill affects.

i have a NS SL, took it to heavenly tahoe this past weekend on groomers blues/greens, very solid board, fast and stable, duno if its b/c i didnt detune the effective edge but once it catches a groove on flat land it'll take u for a ride, but on big hills it carves nicely

Never summer is a great brand with an awesome reputation. I have HEARD of some complaints on warranty customer service, but havent experienced it myself.

I plan getting a summit as my next board.

also, killclimbz board is so EFFIN SICK...

How is the pop/flex on the SL?

the board is medium stiff, pop is mid as well, when compared side-by-side with my forum seeker, its 1-2 millimeter thicker
