Thanks for the reply! How do you feel about the hybrid camber? the boards I've been renting are soft normal camber so I assume the feel of the GNU will take a bit of getting used to. Worth the extra $200 in your opinion?
Oh also, not sure how much it makes a difference, but I'm looking at bindings such as the Burton Cartels or Rome Targas to pair with it.
Basically I'm looking for a board that I can grow/learn into over the next 4 years or so. Expecting it to throw me around for the first few runs.
