The go-to snowboard of Sam Klein, one of the most technical freestyle snowboarders on the planet. The Proto Slinger features our Shockwave Rocker Camber Profile and Asymmetrical edge bite. Not only is this board the end-all be-all of freestyle snowboards, it also excels where a freestyle snowboard isn’t supposed to. It’s a pow floating, trench digging, huge boosting, soft flexing oxymoron.

Rock solid, the foundation upon which park rats are built. This deck goes crazy on the hill! Flexible stability that's got your back. Press-ability is at an all time high with this board, just breathe on tip, and your tail is up buttering every biscuit within shredding distance. If you are looking for a playful deck to stomp everything you throw at it, look no further.
The Funslinger was already one of the most fun boards out there but with the mods to the rocker camber the Protoslinger is way too good. Handles speed much better so to me it just filled the only major issue with the Funslinger. The Assym shape mixed with the flex pattern is easy edge to edge and flows with a surfy feel. Obviously I’m psyching on this board!
Newer to snowboarding, but life long skater and long boarder. So I was intermediate within days last season. This thing butters and jibs great. Super playful. Also carves hard as hell at 45 to 50MPH in pouring freezing rain in Michigan. Total hold. Only board I've ever had besides a rental.last year so no comparison, but very happy with mine. I envisioned ripping the park more, but at 39 I'm finding it more difficult than I thought. So still on small jumps working on 180s.. But I love laying long euros. And, this thing holds.
I got one of these for a good price, I got it mostly because of the price and I love never summer. I typically do not like asymmetrical boards but this board rides amazing. its soft and playful but incredible stable as well. I have a ripsaw I ride and I just didn't have enough time to ride all the boards in my quiver and I use the ripsaw for park so I sold the slinger. Missed it so much I got another one. Amazing boards.
omg.....this slinger is absolutely incredible! That's all i have to say about the board....incredible. This isn't a board review, this is a company review. I just want to thank John for the amazing support on finding me the right board. John answered a slew of silly questions and responded within just a few minutes always.. When i walked in to NS i was warmly welcomed and felt at home. This company is a true gem in the industry. I felt like i was a part of a family who held my hand through the entire process. The quality of there products are second to none! I would also like to say that I ordered the green logger style hat, and holy s***, its the best hat I've ever owned, the inside is like nothing I've ever seen and makes all other hats look cheap, corduroy and velvet are what the inside is made from and wow I'm just as stoked about my hat as I am the board. Listen here, NS is the company you want to do business with! I will never ride anything but a never summer board. John you should get a raise...the support u gave me was like nothing I've ever experienced! NS, you jave a loyal customer for life.....please don't change a thing, because your doing it better than anyone in the business.
