GNU Carbon Credit

Ok so I am thinking of getting a new board...been out of the sport for many years but having gotten out I still have most of my skills (I rode for 8 years before quitting), I would consider myself some place between advanced intermediate and expert in terms of skill...double black diamonds don't scare me. I was on a chat with some dude from Dogfunk.com and he suggested the GNU Carbon Credit as a board I should think about, but looking into it most seem to classify it as a beginner to intermediate board. I like the idea of the manage traction and the banana profile...but maybe there is a better board with these features?

I won't be riding pipe or much in the park just carving up the slopes and getting some air here and there. Any suggestions or comments on the GNU CC?

its not that the carbon credit is a beginner board, it is a price point board. At $400 its the cheapest board offered by gnu or lib. They use a cheaper fiberglass and then reinforce with carbon. The shape and flex is similar to many other boards in their line, this one is made with a cheaper construction. The capita indoor flat kick is a similar board in design for around the same price, and has received good reviews too. The gnu has magnetraction if you have to ride much on ice, also the gnu is built near canada in the usa.
