Never Summer Funslinger – 2019 Snowboard Review


Hi I’m Rob from Snowtrax, and this is the Never Summer Funslinger we’re big fans have of the Funslinger at Snowtrax because it ticks a lot of boxes and works across a lot of different levels of riders. Works for intermediates who are just after a slightly softer flexing board but still want that premium feel still want all of the tech all of the speed a board to progress into but because it’s a twin twin it just works sitting you more in the middle of the board so you don’t feel like you’ve kind of got too much to work with it does a lot of the work for you this is really aimed as Never Summer’s kind of park board you do see a lot park riders going for it as well kind of 5050 really here at Snowtrax we see intermediates just use it for all-mountain or full-on park riders grabbing it. so a couple of key differences in the board just to highlight where it sits in the range same shape in terms of Rip Saw profile so it’s a hybrid rocker in to camber rocker it’s the more aggressive hybrid shape saying that this board is the softer flexing version and range so it’s still super friendly that’s why we do see intermediates going for it you want quite ready for a stiffer board but want a shape that they can progress into that’s why it works as a freestyle board because ultimately you can dictate what you want this to do but you’re not going to lose edge grip because of the profile especially a heel side edge a little bit deeper just saves a little bit of effort on the heel side if you’re not quite there you’re edge performance levels up much more of what you’d expect on your toeside so in terms of length this is a 153, I’m 5’11” & 65kg this works really well for me it’s definitely more of a park orientated length I still get plenty of edge grip when I go out the park in terms of float the shape does lift up really well so I push I can ride it in powder, potentially like to up to the 56 if I want a bit more powder but honestly speaking that’s where I’m looking to grab a different board for those conditions so think about where you’re going to use the board if it’s slightly more park orientated and you want a bit more forgiveness a bit more confidence that’s where you would grab one of these if you’re looking for something more aggressive a stiffer bigger brother in the proto type 2 is the way to go

    Hey, thanks for the review!
    I'm 178cm, 75kg and bootsize 43. I'm looking at this as a quiver board for the park. Currently have a Rome Agent Rocker in 157 for all mountain.
    Do you think I could get away with the 153?
    Thanks again!

    I got the 156 from you guys last year, haven’t been out to a resort on it yet. would it be a good resort board? Hitting random side hits on my way down the mountain?

    Is it good for those who are starting to do carves. And by carves i mean ryan knapton type carves?

    Thnx for the great review. I’m looking for a follow up for my 2012 NS evo, wich I loved for its playfulness and the great grip at higher speeds or carves.

    Now I wonder if this should be my next board as a follow up. I think the funslinger would be good for it’s buttery playfulness, but will it be as stable on higher speed runs and carves? Or should I aim for the Proto?
