135th Aviation Battalion comes home to Denver after a year in Iraq

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.

Helicopter crashes in Golden, CO at the Buffalo Bill Downhill Longboard Race on Lookout Mountain

Sunday May 8, 2011, updated Monday May 9, 2011

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.

Never Summer's reputation of quality and durability began in the early years of snowboarding. Designing and building snowboards since 1983 has given us years of experience in testing and perfecting our snowboard designs and construction methods. We’ve recently taken this experience building snowboards and brought it to the world of longboarding. The end result of our experience coupled with a close working relationship with the world's leading raw materials manufacturers and engineers allows us to bring you the most durable, high performance boards on the planet! Each board is carefully handcrafted in our Denver, Colorado factory to precision tolerances. Our domestic manufacturing and our ability to improve upon existing technologies resulted in Never Summer being awarded the first patent on any type of hybrid camber technology. We allow only the world's best snowboard shops to sell our products. Focusing less on excessive promotion and hype, and more on using the highest quality materials, craftsmanship, and customer service has made Never Summer the world's premier independent board company.
