    I have been riding for a long time, building parks and even spent time as a shop buyer. I know what I like and what I don’t. I was coming off of a Proto Type 2 that had about 100 days on it and I wanted to replace it with something similar. It came down to the Protosythisis or the Proto Ultra. I was concerned that having small feet (8.5) that the Proto Ultra would be too wide and coming off of the 157 Proto T2, the 154 Ultra would be too short and the 158 Protosyth too long. However, what blew me away was that in the middle of the busy Covid crazy season I reached out to Never Summer and they offered to give me some boards to go test out. So I hopped on the next flight to Denver with my binding in tow and got to riding. Long story short I really liked the Protosythisis and it reminded me of everything I like about the ProtoT2. But DEAR GOD!! Ripping around on groomers, hitting jumps, riding switch and just all mountain ripping the Ultra is on another level. I loved this thing so much I took an Ultra 154 back to the PNW with me. The 154 is a great size for me at 5″9″+ and the width is actually perfect. It’s stiff and stable, I have to strap in and press the nose and tail each time just to remind myself how stiff it is compared to to Proto. It’s like the Proto and a 2×4 had a baby. The Ultra instills supreme confidence when turning, landing, riding switch and going in the air. For everyday riding it is now my board of choice. Built like a tank and ready to rip. I look forward to everyday I can get on this board.
    Buy this board! Just don’t skip leg day, you are going to need it. The people at Never summer are top notch and the products they build reflect that. I stop every other NS rider I see and we always compare boards.

    have been riding for 30 years. First, I can’t believe that I waited this long to add a Never Summer! Second, this is truly the best all-mountain board I have ever owned. Setting it up last night, there was a noticeable difference in the quality of the materials and workmanship. The ultra is incredible light, but also incredibly durable! I was super excited to get it on snow and it didn’t disappoint. On spring conditions here in Utah, the lack of chatter on corn and chunder is truly remarkable. On deeper powder on the steeps and in the trees, the shockwave profile is confidence inspiring. The board turns on a dime and is super fast edge to edge without ever getting catchy. At speed, landing jumps, or carving, the ultra is always stable and in control. Day one was an absolute blast!! Looking forward to many more on my proto ultra. NVR SMR 4 LIF!! Shout out to Sam @ Salty Peaks Board Shop in SLC (and Nick and Vince from Never Summer who directed me). Proud to buy locally and support American made!!

      Thx Matt. Welcome to the family!

    The NS Proto Ultra is an all mountain weapon: it turns ultra fast and never catches an edge. Pop is outstanding but no chatter on the hard stuff. I have owned 4 boards before this one….but this is hands-down my favorite. Bravo Never Summer. You have a loyal new customer!

    • Chris Harris

      Steve you have a loyal board builder!

    I’ve been riding for over 18 years. This is by far the smoothest ride I’ve ever had. This thing shreds everything from groomers to fresh powder. The design is really cool as well. I get compliments multiple times a day on the board.

    • Chris Harris

      Thx Stefen! Appreciate the review.

    I’ve been riding Never Summer for some few years now. My brother got me started with them and I just wanna say that living near one of the biggest ski resorts in the country, These are the very best boards I’ve ever ridden! I’ve been riding for about 9 seasons and this company is amazing. I got into a pre season issue this year, sent my board in to the factory, they fixed pressed and even left me sticky notes for my top sheet issues and mailed my board back to me! I really appreciate the hard work and dedication “Shout out to Denver Factory, you guys Rock !!!” Best company, best boards, highly recommended, worth every penny 🙂

    • Chris Harris

      Thanks for recognizing the guys in the back Norm!

    Finally back for a riding review! Where do I begin, oh yeah the number one board you can buy this year! There is so much to say about this board in the powder, ice, and normal groomed runs. This board has yet to disappoint me, from the amazing grip on ice covered slopes to the absolutely powder thrashing this board can handle. The board has a stiff yet responsive playful feeling that doesn’t take long to learn. Teaming up this board with some decent bindings will go along way and you will find yourself pushing your own limits and getting only better at what you love to do.
    What can I say except NeverSummer killed it with this board and I am beyond impressed on what this thing can do.

    • Chris Harris

      Number 1 board you can buy this year…they b!

    Ok. I’ve been dying to write a review on the new Proto Ultra. Three words, ABSOLUTELY FRICKIN AMAZING. Just rode it for two weeks up in Breck. Was a little nervous switching from the Type Two to this because that was such a perfect board, but I did it anyway because anything that comes from the team at Never Summer is simply the best stuff on the planet. I recently paid the factory a visit the other day because I was in town and they were more than appreciative for my business (Thanks Everett). They genuinely care about their product which shows in their quality. I’m 45 years old and have been riding since I was 10, so needless to say I’ve been on a ton of boards and these guys simply produce the best boards I’ve ever ridden. Bottom line, GET YOURSELF ONE OF THERE BOARDS. You will be doing yourself a favor. Frank

    • Chris Harris

      Thanks Frank! A lot of people have asked how the Proto Type 2 could be improved. You just told them.

    I ordered it expecting a wait but I had it within a week. It looks absolutely amazing and the NeverSummer team have been more than top tier with the shipping and help. Can’t wait to submit a riding review.
    Hopefully this more will make me wish it was NeverSummer.

    • Chris Harris

      We can’t wait either!
