This board is perfect for the intermediate to advanced rider rocking larger boots, and looking for a fun ride to turn the whole hill into their terrain park.

  • Sintered P-tex Sidewall – With added sintered P-tex into the sidewall construction, this provides added durability and strength for this board to take a beating in the park.
  • Durasurf XT Sintered 5501 base – This board is built with a highly durable and porous base material that absorbs wax better, and maximizes glide.

This board is a staple in Never Summer's line that helped make this company the behemoth it is today! The camber profile allows for a buttery feeling when pressing, while the vario sidecut allows for a locked in feel like a serrated knife . This is a phenomenal snowboard to explore your riding!

This one will do it all for you. Its a true freestyle monster. Itll carve on a dime but still be nimble enough to spin and pop off side hits. Its shape and profile will make rails and jumps fun to ride for sure!
