The Never Summer SL Snowboard is your one-board quiver to attack the terrain park, backcountry, and resort.

This board has been the work horse of my season. Putting many days on it I like how it handles in everything. I like the stiffness and the feel of the flex. The base has held up to a good beating.

Never Summer SL 164
After a poor snow season, I've been getting annoyed at how quickly Burton stuff breaks! My second custom X lasted about 15 days before it had countless core shots and three edge breaks. Admittedly, I was hitting some rocks and riding hard at Kicking Horse, BC, but I can't afford to buy a new board every month - I'm in my third straight winter and plan to go straight to New Zealand and then back to Canada. I'm a level 2 instructor so ride quite aggressively and needed an all mountain freestyle board to support this and last for a good length of time. The SL is stiffer than my custom X and carves all the better for it, great all over the mountain: trees, steeps, airs, park and backcountry kickers. It feels tougher while still be relatively lightweight and has a nice flex for butters and ollies and aggressive rebound for advanced riding. My only concern is that the maximum stance width is a few inches too narrow - I'm used to Ride and Burton boards with super wide solid stances (I'm 6ft 3).
Flat out just a solid ride, super responsive, got everything i ever wanted in a board
Never Summer SL Snowboard
Great Board, would buy another. Durable and worked well.
Unbelievable! Would recommend NS to anyone, ride the SL and the Premier myself...i like that these people put the money into their products warrant them 3 years and dont go with all the hype, advertising like other manufacturers. Extreme well construction,...Average Price is 500 Bucks for their boards, so if you wanna stick with a board for some time, get it, if you always have to have the newest and greatest dont bother, lol...you can't kill those things!
the title pretty much says it all, such a dope shredpiece.
This board ROCKS!!!
I bought the 2006 version of this board. according to the stats they havent changed it much. The board is awesome. It can handle any jump rail box or jib i throw at. It's extremely stable at high speeds. If you've never ridden a never summer before i highly advise it. You wont want another board after this
