My Gnu B (very) Nice!

Other problems are now clearly identified as idjit operator not equipment. My gnu knows which end of the board is supposed to go downhill. If the rear of the board starts to come around the board itself helps me correct that. Well i say that but now that I'm used to this board that never happens!
Toe edge turns I can't do now are totally the result of my fears. I barely have to think I should turn now and this board is on its way. When I can't turn is all about me riding my heel edge, looking at the steep and being unable to commit.
Overall I find this board responsive and cooperative.
Thanks to you all for your counsel! Have a great winter
Blessings & Good Cheer

|firstx1017||You'll have to let me know how you like the B-Nice as it is Rocker between your feet with a nearly flat profile from outside the bindings to tip and tail. I've had the Rocker between the feet and I found I preferred the camber between the feet for my riding groomers blues and blacks. Getting off the chairlift was always tricky even after riding that board for a year - really squirrely. Crossing my fingers you like it and not many falls!!!|

|Deeplyfelt||So I've chosen the gnu b nice. Rocker camber rocker with scalloped edges. Eco friendly wood inside. Graphics are meh, but I'm not meant to care about that right? Good reviews. Hubby and son both think it's a good choice. Price point midrange. First weekend is not until Dec 1 unless Ullr & KlionÍ get busy! Down payment today. Full fitting and set upon Tuesday. C'mon ye gods where is my snow?|

Helen, just to clarify, the Ollie Pop was not the 5% flat rocker board. It was a Sims Board - similar to the Rome Low Rize Rocker board and it had no mangatraction. The Ollie Pop is rocker between the feet, camber under feet and rocker back at the tips and has magnatraction. The Rossignol Diva is camber between and under the feet, rocker at the tips and has magnatraction.
Let us know what you finally decide and review it on here for us!!

Based on this I will rule the Ollie pop out. Thanks for that - narrowing the field helps. I'll have a look at the rossignol diva for sure. Toe side turns have always been my nemesis but I thought it was my fear. Could be it's also my board?

|wrathfuldeity||come on up, there are retired locals 60's-70's they come up hit the goods m-f in the am and then do lunch back at home or at the lodge. 50's are great the kids on their own, I can now drink a beer and they drive me back home|
