Introducing Camber Rocker (CR), only on the Limited Edition Never Summer Ripsaw CR. The Ripsaw CR is like nothing you’ve ever ridden before. It’s the go everywhere, do anything board. CR Technology features Amplified Camber areas that are longer and deeper than traditional Rocker Camber (RC) boards bringing you twice the amount of camber while still retaining RC playfulness. The true twin Ripsaw CR provides superior edge hold, amazing playfulness, incredible float, and gigantic pop…especially when compared to traditional camber boards. Not for the faint of heart, the stiffer more aggressive flex makes this modern twin the go to board for the aggressive rider who shreds everything.
The limited edition, early release of the 2014/15 Ripsaw CR is only happening at select Never Summer retailers.

The Breckenridge Brewery and Never Summer collaboration has been in the works for the past couple months. In July Breckenridge Brewery asked 10 local artist to come up with a top sheet design. After a round of online voting and a showing, judges decided that John Vogl’s wildlife inspired board would go into production.
On August 29th we began the process of transforming the art into a snowboard. We are doing a limited run of 250 art boards on our SL and Legacy models. In November these boards and our Beer, Imperial Express, will be making their way across the country to celebrate ski/snowboard season opening day.
On November 8th we will be starting off “Opening Day” with a parking lot party at Punch Bowl Social. Throughout the evening there will be activities, giveaways and beer tastings. We will also be premiering our snowboard video “Slap Happy”, it’s going to be a great way to kick off snowboard season. We will see you down there!
Here at Never Summer everyone looks forward to Loveland Ski Area’s opening day. From our team, to our employees, to our owners, and our families, opening day at Loveland signifies the start of a new shred season for us all. It’s better than Christmas. The mental images of mobbing groomers, sick powder days, tree runs, and developing new park skills all come to fruition starting with that first chairlift ride up lift 1. Will we ride other places this season? Hell yeah, and you can be sure that the experiences will be epic…but Loveland has captured our hearts.
Cub and Nicky load up the sleds and go in search of snow.
Follow them as they head north on the ‘What are we calling this tour?’ tour,
or the ‘We don’t have a name for this tour…’ tour,
or our personal favorite, the ‘What the Hell is My Instagram Handle?’ tour.
Whatever they end up calling it, follow it on Instagram @bearcub13, @nicklarson, or @neversummerindustries.
The opening day atmosphere at Loveland is always electric! We have a few traditions at NS that are very important to us…Loveland opening day tops the list. We love Loveland and have enjoyed shredding this piece of Colorado history since day one. As far as we’re concerned Loveland’s opening day is the day that the snowboard season begins here in Colorado. We sent Chach, Lips, Larson, Jackson, Steez, DeCicco, RC, and Gags to tear the place up and enjoy the electricity.
