Collab for a Cause: 10% of your purchase will be donated to Protect Our Winters (POW), a non-profit organization that funds research to fight climate change.

For the love of snowboarding, Daddies Board Shop has teamed up with Never Summer Snowboards to develop the first custom graphic Proto HD and Proto HDX. You may be thinking, what’s with the Summer theme? Each season we couldn’t help but notice that our snow is getting heavier, wetter, and our base levels are shrinking. If we humans keep ignoring the impact we have on our environment, we may all end up spending our winters roasting on the beach instead of shredding fresh pow lines. So whether your tan lines come from your board shorts or your snowboard goggles, you can help make a difference.

Not only will your purchase support a good cause, you’ll be riding a limited edition version of one of the most versatile snowboards of all time. The Proto features Never Summer’s Extended Rocker Camber profile allowing for effortless edge-to-edge transitioning. The Harmonic Dampers paired with Perforated Rocker Pads eliminate vibrations while keeping the board super crisp and lively. The balanced true twin Proto HD is the Swiss Army Knife of snowboards.

CORE:

NS SuperLight Wood Core - Taking our custom flight core even further, never Summer's designed the SUPERLIGHT WOOD CORE specifically for their new Carbonium series. This core blends extremely light wood with durable hardwood for unmatched strength to weight ratio.

BASE:

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.

CAMBER PROFILE:

Extended Transition Rocker Camber - Longer transition zones extending from the end of the camber area and into the low profile tip/tail enhancing the inherent characteristics of our Original Rocker Camber Profile. This is captured by the extended transition areas decreasing pressure over the ends of the effective edge, allowing the board to flow instead of pushing against the snow. This creates a more fluid edge transfer, increases glide and powder flotation. EXRC improves edge hold when the camber is engaged yet is more fluid forgiving and less likely to catch that edge when in neutral position.

EDGE TECH:

Vario Power Grip - 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, it 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 end of the sidecut are deep radius which render quick turn initiation and the final contact points.

THE INSIDES:

Carbonium Laminate Technology - More Carbon equals more power and performance. The new 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 mid section of the core for torsional rigidity between the feet.

STS Pretensioned Fiberglass - 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 that run the length of the effective edge. This produces a stronger bond between the individual  glass laminates giving Never Summer 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.

Elastomeric Underfoot Stabilizers - Elastomeric Rubber Stabilizers directly below the mounting area provide optimum vibration absorption and increase high speed stability while reducing foot fatigue.

Harmonic Tip/Tail Damper (HDT) - Harmonic Dampers in the tip and tail take out a high percentage of residual vibration by quieting the nose and tail. This enhances stability at speed in variable snow conditions, and on board landings, without deadening the liveliness and pop of the cambered areas

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.

Perforated Rocker Pad

THE OUTSIDES:

Sintered P-tex Sidewall - Unlike conventional ABS sidewalls that have a tendency to crack in colder temperatures, SINTERED P-TEX Sidewalls maintain their integrity at any temperature.

Carbonium Top Sheet - A very durable, scratch, and chip resistant material with a high tech carbon fiber like visual. This textured material also provides more grip than a gloss topsheet, working as a built in stomp pad.

Low Profile Tip/Tail - A low profile in the nose and tail of the snowboard maximizes material contact with the snow for more powerful ollie/nollie pop and adds stability to your landings. Low Profile Tip/Tail also reduces the plowing effect in the nose for better glide to the next feature and superior float when it’s deep.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS
everthing they said is true
Yesterday was opening day of my 21st snowboarding season. In that time (I'm now 62) I have owned seven snowboards from brands such as Gnu, NS, Sims, Option and K2. If yesterday is any indication, my new 157 Never Summer Proto HD from Daddies is the best all-around board I've ever ridden. It's noticeably lighter than my SL, and seemingly more nimble in every way. Turn initiation is effortless and edge hold precise. And, it has the perfect amount of dampness for hard pack, that for me, has always been a favored NS feature. This old school intermediate rider can't hardly wait to get back out there and find some bumps.
