Product details
Official manufacturer description

The ProtoSlinger features our new Shockwave Rocker Camber Profile and Asymmetrical edge bite. Not only is this board the end-all be-all of freestyle snowboards, it also excels where a freestyle snowboard isn’t supposed to. It’s a pow floating, trench digging, huge boosting, soft flexing oxymoron.

Is there such a thing as a hard-charging, park destroying, street cleaning, pow shred stick, that brings the steez out of every turn? You may have stumbled upon it here. The Protoslinger, a true twin deck, offers a playful and precise ride that can suit the intermediate rider looking for a board to progress on, to the most technical freestyle rider. It features the Shock Wave Rocker Camber profile which provides explosive pop, precise edge hold, and a playful feel. Enhanced heel side edge hold and trench digging with the Asymmetrical edge bite. 4/10 flex and dampening. Don't be fooled by the softer flex, it is still very stable at speed, with V-shaped carbon stringers at the tip and tail, and down the gut of the board. This is one lively Mo-Fo that needs an owner who thinks outside the box. Throw a couple back in the parking lot and get after it!

A freestyler's dream board! Soft to mid flexing and very lively. Shockwave rocker-camber profile gives you extra camber under foot providing huge pop and extra stability. True twin with a mid soft flex so its great for buttering around, pressing, and locking in on the rails, but also does not compromise landing stability off of jumps. Asymmetrical side walls providing extra edge hold on the heelside turns. Also great for the rider who just wants a soft flex playful board for the entire mountain.

The Proto Slinger from Never Summer is designed to turn your freestyle game up a notch with it's Shockwave Camber Rocker profile and Asymmetrical edgebite. Featuring a softer flex, this board will be super easy to press and jib through out the park. This board not only slays the park but can handle some powder and all mountain riding, too. Perfect for the intermediate to advanced rider who prefers a softer flex.

Best park board on the market. Meticulously designed for park domination and has all the top tech. Impressive pop for such a flexy board, so will handle the bigger hits. Lots of surface area for butters, presses rails.
