When you expect the most, trust the Premier F1 to never let you down.

As a hunter of big drops, wide-open pow lines, and steep tree shots, you require a weapon that won't leave you wishing you'd chosen a higher caliber. Never Summer offers the Premier F1 Snowboard as your weapon to blast through walls of white fluff, stomp hard landings, and power through high-speed turns.

  • R.C. (rocker and camber) technology provides the smooth turns and float of rocker (middle) with stability and pop of camber (outside of binding mounts)
  • Flightcore crafted with both lightweight and premium hardwood for a balance of strength and flexibility without weighing you down
  • Carbon V-Twin laminate layout features v-shaped rods from bindings to tip/tail and x-shaped rods in middle for serious freeride power and stability
  • Extensive rubber layering along the edges provides stability and dampening needed for hard-charging freeriders
  • Fully wrapped edges reduce the chance of topsheet or base de-lamination
  • P-Tex tip and tail protector add even more durability

For me, 9/10, top notch board.
Riding since 1994, over 550 days at Whistler-Blackcomb in the past five years, CASI 3 instructor, style: freeride, big mountain
I'm currently on a 2010 NS Premiere F1-R 161:

Responsiveness: VERY lively, yet super damp and solid cutting through crud. Great ollies, and also great for buttering and pressing. Directional rocker-camber is a joy in powder, I ride within about an inch of centered, +/- 18-15deg, 23.5" width. Riding it switch is no problem, still lively and responsive; still working on the switch pow riding, I think it's more my skill level in switch pow than the board, but it carves as hard I want it to switch. Only comment is that it felt *weird* for a few runs until I got used to it. Expect some accidental over-pivot when if you haven't used rocker-camber before - I'd already spent a season on a rockered Libtech Dark Series 161BTX, but this was different. Are there limitations? Yes, but I think they are minor compared to the responsiveness, on-edge and powder performance. It is a little "twitchy" when one-footing, and possibly a bit more challenging on the worst of cat-track conditions. Can't be sure, it's been cose to 3 seasons since I've ridden regular camber.

Durability: well into season 2 on this board (maybe 140 days expert freeriding) which is amazing. I've not had a board survive two seasons with me in Whistler yet. I tore a couple inches of heel edge out of a NS Premiere traditional camber 161 a few years ago, so I considered that wrecked, even though with an epoxy plug I still carved and ripped everything with it still. On the subject of durability, my first powder board 10 years ago was a NS Legacy 159W. That lasted also through a few years back in Ontario and until I upgraded on arrival in Whistler 2005-2006 season.

Great board. No chatter at high speeds. Silky smooth. Great edge on steep icy terrain. Bowls through crust and flies through powder. This board is truly the best board I have ridden in 17 years of riding. NS is the best board company out there.

There was a small issue with shipping and Dogfunk provided top notch customer care. I was really impressed.

Buy the NS and buy it here fool!

Never Summer Premier F1 159cm

This board is incredible. Turns are effortless and extremely responsive. Quite a bit of pop for a freeride board. Definitely not for park rats, but I've rode a couple kickers and rails with it and it holds its own. I would recommend this board 100%. This is the best riding board I have ever owned hands down.

is this board going to go on sale soon?

Probably not any time soon. I imagine the price will not be reduced till towards the end of the season.

does anyone know if this board is stiffer than last years?

i just got this board, and want to know what would be a good binding to match

That all depends on how you ride. Seeing as how this is an advanced freestyle board, you may want to try something a little stiffer and more responsive. You could try the Burton Cartel, Rome 390, or the Union Force binding, just to name a few.

I have a never summer 163 legacy and have ride spi bindings, really like ride's aircraft aluminum material, makes for a super stable set up
