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.

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.

If you ever get a chance to head out to frisco i would recommend this trail. A couple pushes and your rolling down a really scenic ride.
Take exit 201 frisco and park on the east side, bus comes on 44 min of each hour at the bus stop. Perfect time to have a beer and do it again!
Check out some Clips from the past few months in this montage edit. Stay tunned for the last longboard edit for this season, the last week of aug! We will be shooting up in the mountians on the copper to frisco trail if you want to join!
This video features the Never Summer Heist…
The Heist is a longer, drop-thru version of the Descent. This 41″ flex deck is preloaded with tons of camber and a lower center of gravity created by the drop-thru design. Very lively and responsive yet not overpowering, this is the elite in drop-thru flex decks. Double reinforced around the cut outs, Never Summer uses exclusive pressure plates and extra fiberglass to improve torsional response and durability. Includes 180mm trucks and NS Inferno 77mm/77a wheels.
