That SC was way before asym was a thing, but yeah it looks like they just got a hole saw and cut out a chunk then sanded it down.
I'm a little skeptical about the Gnu board having the tip a little off center; seems like a purely aesthetic thing. At least in my head it's the effective edge that would dictate how the board turns and feels, and of course since that board has a different sidecut on each side it makes sense. Nose and tail shapes do something in the deep powder, but on hardpack they don't do much.
But who knows maybe they are on to something with the asym thing. Rocker and magnetraction were both considered fads but now almost every company has their own version of it.
And of course I could be completely wrong, just giving my opinion here.
