My favorite boards to ride are Never Summer so I spent a lot of time checking out the boards. I also test ride for them which just amazes me to test ride for a company that I support and love the products 100%.

I’ve already been riding the157cm Lotus for a couple weeks now and have been loving the womens free ride board. It’s probably been about 8 years since I’ve owned a women specific board so it says a lot that I would keep this board. My Lotus has been getting a ton of attention from the graphics…it’s just a beautiful board to look at.

This year at SIA, it was great to see the new graphics definitely some cool designs being thrown out for the boards while keeping with the traditional NS designs as well.

    Thanks for the pics!!! Still lovin’ NS graphics. On the whole, they are so clean. Like always.

    So there is no more T5, correct? How different is the new Premier F1 from the old Premier?

    the premier f1 blends the premier and t5 together with a stiffer tail, more torsional give, and a softer nose forward of the contact point for better pow float.

    Yeah I always love NS graphics. It was great talking with the designer this year and hearing how they design the graphics and ideas.

    I have the F1 in my possession and I plan to ride it tomorrow so i’ll be more knowledgeable about the change in flex from my premier pretty soon.

    But the anonymous poster above is a friend and knows how it rides.

    Cool. I am nowhere near being done with my Premier (it’ll last me forever!), but it’s always nice to see how stuff changes from year to year. Looking forward to hearing about the F1.

    Crispy,

    I talked to Never Summer. Since the premier F1 I’ve been riding is completely different than what’s going out to production…I won’t be putting up the review. However when I get the production version of the Premier F1, I’ll definitely be riding it and putting up that review.

    Here’s the post that shows the 5 boards from NS with the reverse camber.

    It is the evo and revolver (wide version of the evo), sl and legacy (wide version of the sl) and infinity (womens). Depends on what flex of board you like and riding style to determine which one suits you of those..then if you have bigger feet, you just go for the wide version of it.

    Just got the NS Infinity, love it. (The reverse camber is awesome as well)
    Amazing on powder and ice alike. Holds edge perfectly.
    Love the grahpics on all of the NS boards…
    They just keep getting better and better!

    Ns rules, awesome to hear you love the infinity! I was riding that board today, definitely a good all around women’s board!
