The go-to snowboard of Sam Anderson, one of the most technical freestyle snowboarders on the planet, the soft-flex, twin tip Proto Slinger features our Shockwave Rocker Camber Profile for massive pop and asymmetrical sidecut for balance edge to edge. Press Flex core allows for locks into presses and on rails. Not only is this the end-all be-all of freestyle snowboards, it also excels where a freestyle snowboard isn’t supposed to — everywhere else on the hill.

A freestyle board yes but riding this all over the mountain is all around fun. The soft flex allows me to slow it down to learn new ground tricks and jumps/side hits. But it still has the speed to get the adrenaline going and carve it up. This board paired with my Proto Synthesis is a perfect quiver.
Rode this board at the 2023 demo at Monarch. Ran it through pow, chunk, drops and
jibs in the trees. High speed mixed bumps and trenches on groomers. Rails, boxes, features, and kickers in the park. Amazing all mountain jib board.
I’m in my second season with over 50 days total on the mountain. I was searching for a board that would help me ollie and butter, but I didn’t want to live in the park. This board is a match made in heaven. My first day I was effortlessly getting great pop on my ollies and could easily press my board for butters. The board also holds up well for carving steeper terrain, but buttering and jumping around groomed runs is where it shines.
Love it! Does it all, and with set back this is a awesome pow-toy, butters like hell so if u like sidehits and flat tricks this is the board for that. this is the way:)
The proto slinger is a true dream board. It is so responsive, playful and capable. I got it for low speed fun while riding with my lady. It is perfect for the purpose, and anything else you would plan on doing on a snowboard (short of dropping big cliffs and chasing AK dreams).
I’m a 6’2/ 82kg/ size 12 boot person riding a 157w. It is a noodle that seriously rips. The flex/camber profile makes it so buttery & pressy, the base is stupidly fast and the side cut/camber combo just wants to slice turns. And as far as quality goes - i now know why never summer have their rep as bulletproof.
What you read about this board is real and you should probably buy it if you want to never be able to blame your board again.
