Great all mtn board

Originally posted at www.gnu.com on Jan 21, 2024
I love this board. I have the 158w 20/21 model year. Rips in the trees, great pop for those side hits and park jumps, butters like a dream, blows through chunder and hard crusts. Set all the way back for deep days and you're rippin pow days apart. The only board ive found I like more is the golden orca.

Gnu with a W again. Amazing do it all board. Can jump from pow to park without missing a beat. Crazy how much the .5” set back helps this thing float. 175lbs and 6ft on the 158w.

Spencer is the expert you need!
5 /5
Spencer was down to earth, knowledgeable and responsive. He made a video for me with his recommended selections and it was SO helpful. I throw him a curve ball and also needed help to find my daughter gear! Spencer is from the East coast like us so he is fully aware of the icy conditions and offered options within my price point that would allow me to feel confident in all conditions. I would highly recommend anyone use this service and if they are lucky enough to be paired with Spencer they are in good hands. Thanks Spencer!!

I was very indecisive and Tyler took the time to provide plenty of options and help me narrow down the selection. I can’t wait to receive my new board and rip it this upcoming season. He was very knowledgable and provided a lot of clarification in the differences between my options.

Ryan had great recommendations, was friendly, and very knowledgeable. He went above and beyond to find the right board and bindings for me! He finds you the best deal and charges you nothing in return. But of course I gave him a tip for his hard work! Curated is an awesome sight and I’m so glad I found it!
