    East is a Beast! This board absolutely rips. My 1st Never Summer purchase did not disappoint. I had read the reviews & they delivered. Stable board that rips high speed carves & destroys beat down groomers. Stiff & aggressive, but still playful. Very impressed by the edge hold, a must for the ice coast. Handles well in the pow too. Get some! Thanx NS!

    Just picked up another Never Summer Board the East at a 165. Incredibly happy they made the leap to get into the 165 range on this particular board. With a hard plate race riding background and into soft setups this board really gives me that similar rush on carving and at high speeds. Adding this too the quiver of the West, Ripsaw, and Big Gun does fill that void for high-speed GS Carving on any snow conditions. It is the Ripsaw on Steroids! Choppy groomers or powder this board holds the carve with little to no vibrations of the nose. Very stable at high speeds, 40+. Edge to edge response is unreal for a board this wide for such a quick response. The East does come almost race ready, with the ISO Speed NHS7816 Race Grade Base. I did the Christmas tree structure, (a slight edge on tracking straight) with a .5 base -1 on the edge and waxed. OMG this is such a fun step on the gas board, and it delivers! Will have to say the East is for the aggressive rider, speed freaks, and into the BX course for sure. Not your Sunday rider. Take the time to get dialed in with your set up on the East small adjustments reaped great performance on this board. Looking forward to getting miles on this rocket. Thanks guys you delivered again.

    Never summer did absolutely amazing with this board! The stability at high speeds and the edge hold on this board is insane, you can lay over crazy deep carves while flying down choppy groomers and not feel a thing. At 13 i haven’t ridden as many boards as a 40 year old but being a BX racer, snowboard addict and owning many never summers i can tell you this board is snappy, fast and responsive as hell. i really enjoy this board for pretty much everywhere but obviously this beast is built for carving, racing and ripping groomers however i was plenty surprised with its Pow and trees performance. this board is super stiff and the turn initiation is instant so this chunk is better suited for a intermediate to advanced rider with saying that though this board is a lot more forgiving then you would think. i would say you have a better chance of seeing a cow fly then feeling any chatter out of this board thanks to all the damping tech in this board. BUY THIS BOARD YOU WONT REGRET IT!!

      I’ve never seen a cow fly…Thx Rory!

    My 6th board from Never Summer and is easily one of my favorites. Feels and responds like my old Raptor and Chairmans do but holds an edge better at very high speed. Steeps and fast groomers are where it really performed best for me. Lower angle trees and powder fields, I prefer my Swift. For the majority of days this board is my go to. The East can take a beating and is just as durable as you would expect from a board still made in America. I ride Big Sky, MT and not many companies can hold up to the beatdown the rocks are capable of and that is the reason the majority of “locals” ride Never Summer.

      Riding the East in the West…Thx Brian!

    I’ve been riding for almost thirty years now and have ridden and raced a wide variety of boards in all kinds of conditions. The East is not only one of the fastest boards I’ve ever strapped into but one of the most enjoyable. The East certainly excels on groomers and east coast boiler plate, as its name implies but its hybrid camber profile makes it quite versatile in everything from Pacific Northwest cement, gnarly Sugarloaf chunder, spring corn at Hood and even a little Brian Head pow. If you’re on the fence about getting the East, just pull the trigger and don’t look back; you will not regret it. Other than my Kessler Alpine 185 PGS, I’ve never ridden a more capable carving machine…besides, it’s fun to ride and a whole lot more forgiving. Cheers

      Thx Scott! Super fun board. Only downside is you’re more likely to get a speeding ticket from the ski patrol.

    An honestly scary board to ride. You will hit speeds and carves that hurt. Takes a while to get used to and learn to ride this board, but the better you get on it, the more it delivers. The base is noticeable faster than any other board. The edges will hold through any kind of snow or ice. An absolute blast on cold groomer days.

    • Chris Harris (verified owner)

      So fast and grippy it’s scary. The better you get the more it delivers…like how I imagine driving a Ferrari would be.
      Thx Josh!
