Ok, I could probably email them and ask, but figured id post up here and see what people think. I have a few friends that ride Gnu snowboards... some pronounce it "GA-new" and some say "New", personally I think its "new"... what do you guys say?
Well... im sticking with NEW. "GaNew" just doesnt sound right
Haha, yeah, even the company refuses to answer that one! First I pronounced it geh-new, but it seemed too weird so for a few years I pronounced it "new" but then everyone was giving me odd stares when, upon being asked what kind of board I rode, replied that I had a "new" board. Especially being an older guy I would get the "oh god, fucking newbie" look, so I had to keep throwing in the model name as well which really made things more muddled like "Oh, I ride a "new" Stupid Cap 164". So now I've just started calling it a geh-new; sure, technically the G is silent but it just clears up so much pointless explanation.
STICK OPPOSITION MOVEMENT
If you want to act 'serious',
then become a skier!
haha, I can see that. When my sisters boyfriend bought a new board last year, I asked him what kind he got. He said "A Ga-New KFC"... at first I was like "WTF is that?" then I realized and said "ohhh, a Nu". He is one of the main people who thinks its "GaNew"...
So basically, the company wont say which way it is but you agree that its pronounced "new".
