All-mountain freestyle twin with explosive pop, supreme edge hold, and playful all over the mountain. The Proto lineup became one of the top-selling boards across America, and the Protosynthesis has stepped it up with precise edge hold and massive energy from the Shock Wave Rocker Camber profile and all-mountain versatility. This board is great for the rider who wants to charge hard all over the mountain and has a strong taste for freestyle riding, but also loves to carve. Take it to the park, pipe, side hits for days, and slay the trees! A 6/10 flex and dampening, provides great stability off of landing, and adsorbs chatter, without being a stiff plank. They say there are no friends on a pow might find there are no friends on a Proto day! Get some!

Neversummer's top performing freestyle deck. All-mountain freestyle twin with an insane rocker camber profile designed for huge stability, hard carves, and lots of playfulness for the freestyle hard charger. Medium-stiff flex with carbon stringers positioned at the tip and tail and throughout for torsion flex. The board has a huge landing gear and tons of pop. Even rides real nice in pow!

The NS Proto the definition of an all mountain twin! Never Summer's shockwave rocker camber is a hybrid profile that lets you have the best of both worlds! Lock in on ice, float in pow, and press on boxes and rails! This snowboard is the definition of quiver killer, with a serrated knife edge to handle anything in its path. They also make some of the most durable tanks in the industry!!

All mountain freetyle ripper. I personally ride a NS proto and its my favorite brand and board. The damp feel makes it so stable. The mid flex gives pop and stability. Progression will be easy on this board and high performance will continue to be there as you go from a beginner to a more advanced rider.

This is an iconic all-mountain board from NS that's going to be awesome for carving hard due to camber tips and a medium flex. At the same time it'll still be playful as it's not overly stiff and has a freestyle flair to it which makes it great for sidehits or presses!
