Default How "small" of a company is Neversummer

How does this "small" company have so many boards and when riding it at local hill it seemed like everybody and their grandma had one. On this forum also, it seems like most of the board posts are somehow Neversummer related.

Pretty small. I don't know exactly how many employees they have, but it can't be that many. They're factory is just north of I-70 on Colorado and isn't big at all. Other than a NS sticker on the door you'd never know that's what it was.

definitely legitimately small. they're all the rage and talk right now. between them and libtech. which is a little bigger but still a small company. NS boards sell out quick. the demand exceeds the supply by a lot. maybe that's by design to drive up demand but I know that if you don't get their new boards in the all they're hard to come by. you won't see many of their boards in local shops come spring time because they're all sold out.

ShockTroop, Lib is anything but a small company. Especially when compared to Neversummer. Neversummer is family owned and operated as I understand it. Lib is owned by Mervin MFG. which is owned by Quicksilver. I'm pretty sure Quicksilver isn't a small company. If any of my info about Neversummer is wrong, then someone please feel free to correct me, but I stand solid on Lib not being small.

I've heard that to, and I'm just kinda confused on how such a small company, produces so many boards. It's just amazing where I see Neversummer stuff these days. I saw a few Neversummer stickers on the highway, and I live in Ohio so it was kinda weird seeing how popular this company is.

Seriously every single board i see on the hill is a neversummer. Either the sl or the revolver. Also flux bindings are dominating. I have seen more than 15 ppl with flux bindings this season. Mostly the 2011 rk's.

Lib isn't owned by Mervin, it IS Mervin. They make Lib/Gnu/Roxy. They are owned by Quiksilver, which is a big conglomerate, also owning other brands like DC. Thing is, Mervin is left to operate the same way they always have. It's still run by the same people and their boards are still designed and manufactured right here in WA state. I classify them the same way I do other domestic board cos. like NS.

Around here, I still hardly ever see NS boards. For instance, at Crystal this weekend I only saw one all day, and that was on the racks by the lodge on my way out. I did see a ton of them when I was in CO last year, same as Lib/Gnu around here, which makes perfect sense.

NS is a tier 3 brand bordering on tier 2. Tier 1 is stuff like K2/Ride/Burton Tier 2 is like Rome. There's more people working there than you think.
