Description

TESTER: Robyn Vincent

BOARD: Neversummer Lady West 151

TEST YEAR:   2019 SHAPERSUMMIT SNOWBOARD REVIEWS

OVERALL IMPRESSION FROM  1 TO 7:  4

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: The graphics

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS BOARD?: For a Never Summer deck, the Lady West was disappointing when it comes to stability and float

OVERALL COMMENTS: Never Summer has become a favored brand at Jackson Hole because NS makes a lot of sturdy decks that don’t sacrifice pop and playfulness. The Lady West, however, is not among NS’s best. I’d like to see a sturdier iteration of this board.
