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.

Thanks for chiming in on your experience. I rode a fish and loved it so I would probably go with a fish or even a jones hovercraft if I was going with a strict powder board. I'm sure the Gyrator would match these boards. This whole dolphin pop sounds like a lot of fun. I wish I had better opportunities to ride some demos.
