Never Summer Snowboards 2009-2010
06 Feb, 2009
Update 5/5/09: Never Summer Catalog images have been added to the very bottom of this post.
Never Summer walked away from the 2008 show ready to make and create their own version of the reverse camber that was very clearly gaining momentum. Behind the scene, Never Summer staff, team riders, product testers and shop kids were given boards to ride and try out. . . to determine if these reverse cambers were worth putting out and the response was very clear. Put in the reverse camber.
As the 08-09 season approached, 5 models were introduced that were strictly reverse camber. The response from the people who had rode them, was overwhelming and Never Summer went full force into reverse cambers. Whether it was people that wanted Never Summer’s based on their reputation and durability or their first time owning them, the reverse cambers were very popular at demos and on the salesfloor.
Now for 2009-2010, every snowboard has reverse camber except for the Titans. The freeride specific models continue to be more freeride specific with reverse camber.
The two straight up park boards, Pandora-R and Circuit-R will be the only boards with a 1 year warranty, everything else follows Never Summer’s 3 year warranty.

I’ve only been riding the Lotus-R which I have been very happy with, as a freerider it’s great to have a board that can handle the whole mountain. I’ll be making my way through the NS line-up with the introduction of reverse camber to other models to check out how they ride.
