Default Gnu CHB or Riders Choice?

im looking at both of these boards and im debating which one i should get.i hear the gnu is more of a beginner board and chatters at high speeds.then others tell me to look into the riders choice from Gnu.is this board considered for intermediates?i pretty much do everything on the mountain.any opinions?

Two totally different boards. When you say you ride all mountain, WHERE do you ride? East coast? West coast? The Riders Choice is true "all-mountain" board in that it'll handle the steeps and pow well, but you can get by in the park for bigger booters and what not. The CHB is awsome if you ride east coast conditions and don't really need that stiff board board.

I had an 06-07 Rider's Choice with Magnetraction. I don't know if that's what you what to have as a beginner. It's not too forgiving. It's a stiff board, and if your not paying attention to what your doing it'll fling you right on your face. I'm more of an intermediate, and it took me a few runs to get used to it myself. Stick with a regular beginner board that's a little softer and more forgiving. Hit up your local shop, and ask around on the forum, there are many good boards out there.

Yeah, just stick with the CHB since you're on the east coast. Softer and more forgiving...

Honestly, don't worry about the base. Unless you're racing, it won't make or break you as the rider.

True! I don't mind extruded bases myself. Sintered holds more wax but extruded is pretty damn tough. And as long as you do a good wax job on either, you will do just fine (unless you were try to enter a Boarder Cross competition and every millisecond counted).

...and the '07-'08 boards have MTX if you want that on the CHB.
