The Never Summer Soldier is the perfect complement to Mark Riley’s superior longboarding skills! Luckily we recruited him to ride for the Never Summer Longboard Team. Only premium, handcrafted, made in the USA longboards can withstand the beatings he lays down on the streets of America.
Video Production student Quinn Maxwell put together this four minute informational piece on Never Summer Industries and our patented RC Technology. Have a look inside our factory in Denver, CO and hear from “The Coolest Guy You Know”, Gags, and The Hammer. We have to assume Quinn aced the class…
Never Summer team rider Heather Baroody shredding the back country on the SL Split, slaying the park on the Proto CT, and winning the Alt Games at Copper Mountain.
Heather might be the best rider you know. She also might be the smartest person you know. In addition to being an awesome snowboarder Heather just earned a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry with a minor in Astrophysics.
Okay, we’re totally intimidated…
Never Summer Industries was extremely psyched to be able to attend the welcome home ceremony for G Company 2-135th General Support Aviation Battalion. These soldiers just returned home from a year of saving lives in Iraq. The 135th is a helicopter medical evacuation unit, or MEDEVAC unit. The primary mission for the 135th G Company in Iraq was to provide life-saving support to US and Coalition Soldiers. G Company flew more than 2200 hours and provided MEDEVAC evacuation for over 240 US and Coalition Force personnel.

A helicopter intended to film the Buffalo Bill Downhill longboard race on Lookout Mountain in Golden, CO crashed today while hovering above the finish line. Without warning the aircraft started to drift downward towards a large pine tree. The helicopter’s rotor clipped the tree rendering the rotor useless. The landing skids hit the ground perpendicular to the slope of the ground causing it to “bounce” ninety degrees counter clockwise. It seems that the force of the skids hitting the ground caused the tail rotor to shear itself from the aircraft. I do remember seeing the tail rotor strike the tree also but that memory is hazy and the video I have watched since doesn’t seem to confirm my impression of the incident. When the landing skid made contact the second time, this time parallel with the slope of the ground, the weight of the helicopter’s front end forced the copter to tip over coming to rest on it’s canopy. Thankfully no one was hurt. Police evacuated the area and the remainder of the races were canceled. As if downhill longboard races aren’t exciting enough, this years Buffalo Bill Downhill is sure to go down in history as one of the most exciting longboard events ever.
