Teach your kid to say “no” to camber.
Now that Gnu has Banana Technology totally dialed in pro-model boards, it hooked up the B-Pro Mini BTX Kids’ Snowboard with the same easy-to-ride reverse camber design. Add Magne-Traction edges which make even the iciest conditions feel mellow, and your grommette has one rippin’ ride that’ll be easy to learn on and won’t hold her back from slaying the whole hill. Gnu’s damp and forgiving Mervin A.5 aspen core provides a smooth flex, reduces chatter, and helps your girl stick the first jumps she tries.

This 115cm board is for my 8-yr-old. She's been skiing for awhile, her first snowboard ride was on the B-Pro Mini. Great board for learning. Flex is good for kids, not too stiff or soft, perfect (first bought a different board elsewhere - cheaper, but the thing was as stiff as my board). I believe the Banana -BTX - really helped out the learning process, it can be "skatey", so she was able to get her toe side turns down very fast - first day. As she gets better, having the BTX will only be more of an asset (I've got a Lib Tech with BTX, and its awesome). BTX rocks.
My first board was a Burton Ginger 2008 great learning board but....I did a lot of research of Lib Tech after watching "That's it that's all" and found out about Magne traction and banana technology. I had to find out if what they were claiming could be true. I bought the Gnu B-Pro Mini 135cm because I am a petite woman (5'1" and 100 lbs) and the staff here at Backcountry advised me that if I wasn't a park rider this would be a great board for me. I can't explain how fun this board is. Yes, I fell a few times but that's part of learning. I must admit I didn't seem to catch my rails as much as I did with my old board...reverse camber and magne traction....I am a believer. I am a beginner and I was doing tail presses down the mountain. This board is amazing and so much fun. Look for BTX on your next board.
