Get your adrenal glands pumping in the off-season with Never Summer's Concept Longboard.
When the fluffy white has retreated from the slopes and the water's still brewing up hypothermia, bomb the pavement on Never Summer's modified-pintail Concept Longboard. The short(er) 43-inch length allows mellow, maneuverable cruising, but the vertically laminated aspen core, adjustable wheelbase and carbon stringers provide fine-tuned flex and stability for maching down mountain passes. Innovative P-Tex tip and tail bumpers offer durable, repairable protection to the most exposed parts of your board, and you'll enjoy the smooth, speed-wobble-free ride Never Summer creates using rubber truck dampers, ABEC-5 bearings and grippy 78a durometer wheels.

Are there different graphics available for the "Never Summer Concept Longboard"? It looks like there are different base graphics in the "detail views"
It looks like all they have is that "White" option, but if you call the customer service, they will be able to tell you if there are other colors coming in.
Smooth Ride, Great Quality!
This is a flexy board, no doubt. I'm about 150lbs and find it to be just about perfect. I very much doubt a 200lb+ person would enjoy it very much though.
It's a responsive, yet smooth ride. The wheels are excellent quality (poured by AEND) and have a nice combination of grip and speed.
I tightened the trucks quite a bit, as I like a much firmer feel. I've also read in online forums that some of the Khiro bushings work very well in the Paris Trucks.
The entire board has an enthusiast quality fit and finish to it. Well worth the price difference between this and a more mass market board.
fast and flexy
very responsive and fast. you can ride it either way. super flexy and bouncy. supports heavy riders. the wide end edges will touch the wheels when you are in a sharp carve so you should tighten the front trucks. since it's so responsive and sensitive it is easy to lose control at high speeds. comfortable ride on flat surfaces and handles bumps, gravel, and sidewalk grooves well; good for getting around town. the bottom sheet is not the highest quality print and is not very cool, but a couple sweet stickers will do the trick.
