I got this board at the end of last season and rode it only on big powder days in Colorado. First impression is that this board is one of the best I have ridden. I usually ride Never Summer SL-R. I love the rocker camber combo on the Gnu. It floated great in the pow, better than the Never Summer SL-R, and the blunt shape is awesome. The only thing I would say negatively about the board is that it is pretty soft compared to my SL-R. I did not ride this on much hard pack so can?����_�����_��t say how well it holds edge when bombing down a groomer.
Bottom line, this is a great all mountain twin that is going to be my deck of choice this season.
