Got this board yesterday, and rode it today for a few hours....what a fun hard charging board. Conditions were a wicked crazy mix of big hard wind affected bumps, pow stashes in the trees, and a little groomer action too. Of course the pow stashes were the most fun but it handled well in all conditions. I felt the magne- traction grab on the ice, and the nose float in the pow. Love, love, love how light, responsive and flexy this board is.....makes riding feel a bit more effortless, and I noticed diminished knee pain as a result. Win-win! This is my first GNU board and although I've loved my other board for the past few years, I may never go back!
