Speaking from experience here.

If you are only going to ride one board and it doesn't dump every time you ride.
Then a Gyrator shouldn't be your first choice.

I've ridden it on non-pow days and it isn't very fun.

This board is a pure pow board.
I don't ride my Gyrator unless there is at least 6" of new snow.

However, if it does snow. This board is very lively, quick to turn, and does this awesome porpoise thing.
If you push the nose under it will pop back up and if you do it in succession into turns you can start hopping in and out of the pow a lot like a dolphin in the water.
