  1. How similar is the NS Proto Type 2 and the Rome Lo-Fi 2020 board?

    Comparative Reviews
    So I've ridden the men's Never Summer Proto Type Two, which I really liked. I recently looked at Rome's 2020 women's Lo-Fi snowboard, which looked pretty good too. I was wondering what the main differences between them were and if those differences would be noticable to an intermediate-advanced...
  2. Funslinger length help

    Hey all I'm looking to buy the Never Summer Funslinger, but having trouble figuring out if I should go with 153 or 156... Hoping you guys can help me make a decision.

  3. Can't decide between NS Proto Type 2 and Lib Tech T. Rice Pro

    Hey y'all - It's time for my boards (Burton Twin 151 and Lib Tech Skate Banana 154) to retire in piece and I have pretty-much-the-same-price options (NS Proto 18-19 and Lib Tech T. Rice Pro 19-20) I ride 50% groomed runs with some icy patches, 50% trees and freeride. I'm 5'6 and about 140 lbs...

  11. FIRST BOARD Never Summer Proto Type Two vs Burton Process Flying V

    Hi All, I've recently taken up snowboarding and I'm hooked so I'm looking to buy my first board. I was originally looking at getting the Burton Process Flying V (159) as I heard its good for turn initiation and a soft playful board. However, I've heard it's not the best as an all mountain...

  13. Board Recommendations

    Welcome New Riders And New Members
    I’ve been riding the same Cusotm X for about 10 years and it’s finally time for a new board. I loved my custom x but I’m looking to switch it up and Never Summer has caught my eye. I’m trying to decide between the Ripsaw, Chairman and West. I like a stiff board that I can take in the trees, the...

  15. Did I just short myself on a Never Summer Proto 2?

    I dropped a lot on a new board from NS and now everything I'm reading is telling me I should have gone up in size. I'm 6'1, 205, with a size 9.5 shoe and I bought a Proto Type 2 157cm board. My first board was a 159 and it sometimes felt too long and heavy so I decided to go down a little. I'm...

Have loved it and learnt basically everything i know on it but think its time to move on to a different board. I spend most of my time riding all over the mountain but in past 2 years...
  17. Never Summer Type2 Review - (bye bye Ladies Choice)

    Yep, that's right, from someone who has espoused the GNU Ladies Choice EC2 for the last few years, I am ready to move on. I was looking for something with more camber, better edge hold, more stable, a little longer, and just in general a beefier deck but still as a fun all-mountain, do all deck...
  18. Never Summer Insta/Gator (women's)

    I got to demo some Never Summers at the Sierra at Tahoe demo day. I demoed boards on both Friday and Saturday. I liked all the boards but the Insta/Gator stood out. I liked it so much I rode it both days. Both days were powder days and the Insta/Gator was the perfect board. I am 5'2 with a small...
