Gnu riders choice 2011??????

I just ordered the new gnu riders choice and now I'm having second thoughts about c2 btx
Will this board still catch a edge like a regular camber board while turning ? I'm a fairly new rider this is my second season I can link turns and carve I'm just learning to Ollie and take small jumps id also like to start jibing a bit
Is this board goin to help me progress or is it to advanced for me ? Most of the time I'm just bombing around on the groomers

1st off, catching an edge is not the boards fault, it's yours. Beginners catch edges that's part of learning. After you stop catching edges frequently, you will still have about 3-5 years where you average 1 hard edge catch a season.

As for your C2BTX question, C2BTX is super sick, it's hard to catch an edge just playing around on.

Yes that board will help you progress but if you want to get better ride with guys that are better than you.

^^^ I agree, plus you wont really know anything different because it is only your second season. I do not think that you will regret it.
