All-mountain freestyle nirvana.
Short for prototype, the Never Summer Proto HD Snowboard represents the very best in top-shelf board technologies, creating an enlightening all-terrain freestyle ride that rips icy terrain parks and fresh, powdery chutes. This twin-shaped board delivers excellent float through the deep stuff without any set-back, thanks to its Extended Transition Rocker Camber profile. Based off Never Summer's Rocker Camber profile, the board features rocker underfoot with camber starting just past the bindings, continuing into Extended Transition Zones. Coupled with the board's low-profile tip and tail, these Extended Transition zones give the Proto HD its fluid edge-to-edge feel, also increasing float through deep, bottomless powder.
Keeping the Proto HD riding nice and smooth, Harmonic Dampers are placed at the tip and tail, helping to reduce high-speed chatter without deadening pop and liveliness. The Perforated Rocker Pad absorbs vibration between the feet, and Carbonium laminates keep the board torsionally responsive when you're hauling at blistering speeds. Add in the super-fast Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 base and ice-gripping Vario Power Grip Sidecut for an all-mountain freestyle ride that doesn't compromise edge hold for powder floatation.

This board sounds beast! Anyone ride it?
I bought the 2013 and it doesn't look like anything changed. Rode it at Whistler and Brighton with Union Contact Pro bindings. Great all around board. Good pop, soft landings, and good float. I've become a huge never summer fan. I own an SL for deep POW, but won't hesitate to take this one anywhere. Also own a Burton Super Hero for parks and tooling around on the east coast, but if I'm taking one board, this one is definitely it.
Sweet thanks man thanks I have a nug and I'm wanting to get a nice hybrid hard riding fun carving board as a alternative from my playful v rocker nug and I'm really interested in trying out never summer appreciate the feedback
