In addition to our advanced engineering and exacting tolerances,
Never Summer utilizes the following quality materials in our longboards:


P-Tex UHMW Tip & Tail Protectors — We pioneered the use of P-tex in the sidewalls of our snowboards for durability and ease of repair. Adding the same proven P-tex tip and tail bumpers provides a level of protection and durability not found in any other longboard on the market.

STS/SK8 Fiberglass
We use our exclusive STS/SK8 fiberglass in each and every one of our skateboards. This pre-hardened, pre-tensioned, layered laminate is the world's best fiberglass and only Never Summer has it. STS/SK8 fiberglass maintains the flex pattern of your longboard, keeping it consistent and even throughout it's life. This fiberglass is more responsive and does not breakdown as quickly as in expensive Tri-axial glass often used by other manufacturers.

Carbon Torsion Response
NS uses Carbon stringers placed in strategic locations in our decks, improving torsion response and turning.

VLAC (Vertically Laminated Aspen Core)
Utilizing our in-house wood working facility we manufacture a vertically laminated aspen core for all of our longboards. Borrowing from our proven snowboard core technology, we have adapted our Flight Core characteristics to make NS's VLAC; a strong, light and solid responsive platform for longboards.

The Bi-Lite/SK8 is a very snappy and light fiberglass that adds strength and response in our longboards. This fiberglass is more responsive and does not breakdown as quickly as inexpensiveTri-axial glass often used by other manufacturers.

Hard Rock Maple
Our maple veneers are hard, maple laminates engineered by Great Lakes Veneer for Never Summer to our exact specifications. Quality, thickness and moisture content are the key to consistent quality.

Rubber Damping
Rubber Damping helps to absorb vibrations from the trucks to offer a smooth and stable ride and reduce high speed wobbles. It also helps to reduce foot fatigue and keep your feet feeling great, even on the really rough roads.
