Default interesting stuff from GNU

GNU Snowboards New Complicated, Confusing Snowboard From Gnu Naturally Makes Snowboarding Easier And More Fun

interesting, kind of makes sense. might be worth a try but this years impossible is already too expensive to "try" at $800 bucks.

Looks like a park pickle with new graphic and magic dust sprinkled on it, to me. $800???? That's the price of a split board... They can keep it. If they're so state of the art, why don't they match NS's 3 year warranty?

i dont doubt that this doesnt work... i tested the park pickle and i could for sure tell my heel side carves were much more locked in.

I think theyve brought it to an unnecessary level. and are trying to bank off of it.

its a tweaked impossible not a park pickle, but they have added an asym core and contact length to go with the asym sidecut radius. does it work... yes, do you need it... no. $800 is high but gnu makes $400 boards too.

Eventually they'll keep adjusting it until one day they might split it or customize it to each feet....

Oh wait...
