The Never Summer Funslinger Wide Snowboard 2019 lives exactly up to its name. Its made for having fun on when your on piste messing around on side hits and playing at “who can do the best butter or nose manual”.
In our test earlier this year in January, we put it through its paces in the park and on piste and did a quick lap in the powder.
In the park, it did exactly as expected, pretty much like most park boards with a softish flex, it locked onto the rails and boxes well and gave us good feeback underfoot and landed switch nicely when exiting features.
On kickers, surprisingly for a soft board, it had great pop and snap, making busting out good ollies easy. Landings were nice and stable and trouble free to stomp, even on crud in the landing area.
On piste, is where it excelled, especially on the sides of pistes with side hits and rollers. You could easily carve it, spin it, butter it and really mess around. So much fun could be had, we’d be totally knackered by the time we got to the end of the run.
