These are the Good Old Days. The days you look back on fondly. The memories you make today. The dreams you realize tomorrow. Cutting edge technology, quality, durability, unforgettable experiences, friends, and family. The Good Old Days last a lifetime. Never Summer believes that a lifetime is too short to ride anything else.
With the Peacemaker, Shaper Twin, Insta/Gator, and the West as submissions at our inaugural STOMP Summit in Aspen, Never Summer reminded us all that these are the Good Old Days. Right here. Right now.

Is a particular park feature or trick giving you trouble? Well, it's finally time to make peace with the help of Never Summer's all-new Peacemaker strapped below you. Created with input from team rider Dylan Alito, this snappy true twin features a soft-flexing midsection that helped lock into rails, while the slightly stiffer nose and tail provided plenty of pop and stability off the booters. And although it may have been most proficient at keeping the peace in the park, its Blower Stance – an addition of setback inserts – allowed testers to slam their stances back when conditions called for pow laps.

The newest member of Never Summer's Shaper Series, the Shaper Twin features a unique twist on traditional centered-stanced boards. With their Ripsaw Rocker Camber in the tail for aggressive edge hold, and Original Rocker Camber in the nose for increased float and surf-inspired turns, the Shaper Twin proved to be a much more versatile board than what met our eyes. Ride it switch, ride it in pow, ride it pretty much anywhere you damn well please – it's ready to perform.

This is one snappy little gator. Designed to decrease length while increasing performance, Never Summer's Insta/Gator is here to prove that good things do come in small packages.

From rocketing out of carves to cracking ollies at full speed, this board proved to be a rejuvenating and unlikely quiver killer.

Whether you're looking for air time or never want to leave the ground, this directional deck with freestyle tendencies is sure to take you along for a ride, wherever that may be.
