Since 1991, Tim Canaday and his team at Never Summer have been producing high-quality snowboards among the mountains of Colorado. The Never Summer Twenty Five made its debut this winter, created to honour the brand's quarter-century. It's a top freeride whip that won over our testers, earning itself a spot in the Snowboard 100.

It didn't happen by accident, of course; the Twenty Five was the end product of a long R&D process that included the creation and testing of prototypes.

We've managed to get our hands on this ultra-rare model (one of only two that were made), hand-shaped and signed by Tim (pictured below) - and one lucky Whitelines reader winner will be able to ride it, or hang it on their wall, very soon.

For your chance to nab it, simply follow us on Instagram (@whitelines_snowboarding) and tag your best shred photo with #WLgram. We'll pick a winner and announce it on our Instagram next Friday 10th February.

Happy 'gramming!
