Never Summer Insta/Gator Snowboard - Women's:
Snap in and out of turns, spin like a machine, and rail like a train. Size your Gator zero to 10cm smaller and improve your OVERALL performance. Amazing nimbility with stability that is incomprehensible in a board this size. 12mm of taper and massive surface area will have you happily downsizing without losing the performance or ability to ride ANYWHERE in ANY
CONDITIONS. It’s a new world...adjust your stance width, placement, and angles for ride variations that fit the days mood, conditions, and style. You’d better get a Gator sooner rather than later. All Shaper Series boards feature our new Fusion Rocker Camber Profile.
MEN’S AND WOMEN’S
SIZE 0~10cm SMALLER
Carbon Max Laminate Technology - More carbon equals more power and performance. The Carbonium Laminate Technology combines an advanced top and base carbon matrix to maximize torsional response and strength where it’s needed most. The result is a lightweight yet powerful design that will keep the Carbonium Series boards going strong for years. NOTE: The Chairman has long Carbon V’s on the bottom of the core to put direct pressure over snow with a big Carbon X on top of the mid-section of the core for torsional rigidity between the feet.
Fusion Rocker Camber Profile - Introducing Fusion RC. We put the edge gripping hold, the snap out of turns, and the huge pop of Ripsaw RC in the back and combined it with the float and surfy feel of Original RC in the front. Fusion is here to bring back the fun and fluidity that will make snowboarding dynamic again.
Extended Transition Area - A small, flat section in the snowboard profile that improves both turn initiation and powder floatation.
Vario Power Grip Sidecut - Vario Power Grip Sidecut utilizes multiple radiuses creating extra contact points to enhance edge hold. A flat section in the rocker area provides a broad contact point when flexed, however when unbent allows the board to track straight and not catch. Flanking this straight section are two shallow radius which provide the second and third contact points. Towards the ends of the sidecut are deep radius which render quick turn initiation and the final contact points. The Chairman Power Grip Sidecut has two more radiuses for additional edge hold.

STS Pre-tensioned Fiberglass - The world’s best snowboard fiberglass, period. Our STS ADVANCED FIBERGLASS is a pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate that has added elastomer stringers between the 0 degree and 90 degree glass fibers (the length of the effective edge). This produces a stronger bond between the individual glass laminates giving our snowboards unmatched strength, edge hold and performance.
Bi-Lite Fiberglass - BI-LITE fiberglass combines many of the strength characteristics of STS ADVANCED fiberglass with an ultra light glass fiber matrix. This delivers incredible freestyle and freeride performance without sacrificing durability.
NS SuperLight Wood Core - Taking our custom flight core even further, we’ve designed the SUPERLIGHT WOOD CORE specifically for our new Carbonium series. This core blends extremely light wood with durable hardwood for unmatched strength to weight ratio.
RDS 2 Damping System - This lightweight system uses three narrower laminated damping layers that provide the perfect combination of vibration, absorption, and stability. RDS 2 is the perfect balance of freeride stability and freestyle liveliness.
Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers - Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high-speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.
Sintered P-Tex Sidewall - We were the first snowboard company to use and perfect SINTERED P-TEX SIDEWALLS, and we’ve never seen one crack. Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls, that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, SINTERED P-TEX SIDEWALLS maintain their integrity at any temperature.
Durasurf Sintered 5501 Base - Crown Plastics has developed an exclusive, super fast, durable sintered base specifically for the Carbonium Series. Just the right amount of graphite has been added making the DURASURF 5501 XT base the fastest we’ve ever used.
P-tex Tip/Tail Protection - Boards with P-TEX TIP/TAIL PROTECTION have UHMW Plastic, or P-Tex, which is a softer molecular material, that not only seals and protects the wood core, but also absorbs vibration and impact.
ALWAYS TRUST YOUR SHAPER
Brothers Tim and Tracey Canaday started Never Summer 26 years ago. For over 34 years Tim Canaday has been shaping snowboards. Always on the cutting edge of snowboard design, from the mind of Tim Canaday, Never Summer brings you the Shaper Series. Here to recapture the feeling that made us all snowboarders, the Shaper Series is all about beautifying the turn and creating a fluid style all your own! The first time you linked turns...that’s when we all got hooked. That ‘something’ just ‘clicked’. It changed our lives.
The Shaper Series brings us back to our snowboarding roots. The fun and attainable style are the pure dynamics of snowboarding. Make no mistake. This is a very different board, from look, to profile, to performance, all inspired by fluid style. The Shaper Series embraces every aspect of snowboarding…groomer, park, trees, speed, big carves, huge lines…regardless of snow conditions. The new Fusion Rocker Camber Profile is combined with an increased surface area and a streamlined taper that brings the passion back to your snowboarding. Every board has amazingly quick turn initiation, tons of pop, and trench digging edge hold regardless of size.
Bring the beauty and awe back to your snowboarding. Reinvigorate your game. Always trust your shaper.
