This board has brought my riding to a whole new level. I have hit speeds that I never thought were possible and this thing handles like a dream. The board is absolutely bomb proof, you can straight line the steepest lines you can find and it plows through everything. It is definitely a board for an advanced rider. My home mountain is Big Sky and almost all of the locals ride never summers because of the 3 year warranty and they are impossible to break. Once you go never summer, you will NEVER go back.
