Default Looking for feedback on GNU board !!!

I just purchased my first official snowboard for this upcoming season . I checked boards out for 2 hours , got a guy that worked their who has 15 years of riding to help me narrow down to a few boards . I decided to go with a GNU board ( 2008 model ) . It was 60% off , so I only paid $280 for it . I would really appreciate anyones feedback on these boards . Everyone at the board shop claims its a great board , but I would like to hear some feedback from people from this forum . I value everyones opinion on here . Thanks

Gnu makes like 10 different boards... Model? Can you return it? How much do you weigh, what size is it? What kind of riding will you be doing on it? Cause what if we tell you it licks wet cat? Not that we will necessarily, I'm just tryin to figure out why you're asking for opinions after you already swiped your card...

It is model 9110 , GNU Carbon Credit Series BTX Snowboard , Orange face , rocker board , I believe it is 154cm . And I put all my gear on layaway with 50% down , so I could technically swap boards . My exact words to the guy at the snowboard shop was "I dont want a shitty board that I will need to upgrade in 3 months , yet I dont want to spend $500 on a board that great snowboarders use because right now I am totally new" BTW I am 5-9 , 203lbs . Hope this helps

Awesome . Glad to hear a good comment from someone ( other than the guy who sold it to me lol ) . Sorry for the lack of info on my first posts . As I said I am new and a little naive when asking questions I guess . I appreciate your thread .

Only thing that u may worry about is lenght. 154cm at 203lbs is pure rail board but since ur beginner it will be easier to learn. But when u progress and ull want somethnig that can bomb down steeps ull have problem.

What kind of riding are you doing? How long have you been riding? Why do you put a space before your punctuation?

maybe as a novice rider it will be slightly problematic but once his got days/years under his belt that size and weight wont kill him

Im 6 foot 205 and rock 153-156 boards all over the mtn from the park to chest deep backcountry hikes .. I moslty ride park boards or real soft all mtn boards like kinks, skate bananas, riders choice, sierrascope, smokin big wigs etc
