Brandon Says: Handrails at your local school to a huge flat down flat rail at your local park, the 2007 Gnu Street Series, with its biaxial fiberglass, sidewall construction, twin stance, and sandwich construction, can handle any street scene you can throw at it.


Aaron Says: If you don't like the day after a storm because the jumps and rails in the park are buried, you need a Gnu Street Series. This snowboard separates the men from the boys.

WOW what a unique looking board.

the graphics are tottally different from most boards which gives it that extra "edge" you need when showing this board off to your friends.

I know someone who bought this just for street rails and the occasional park jibs and uses it and loves it.

The board holds up solid on any rail or jib you can throw at it while performing to the best of its ability.
I wished I wouldve knew about how well this board was before purchasing the one I use now.


at 369.00 the board has generally a low price tag and has a lot of bang for its buck.

so if someone out there is a rail junky and can't get enough of those nose presses or frontslide boardslides... I'd deffinetly point you into this direction of the GNU street Series.

ENJOY! :)

Let me begin by giving you an idea about the board. Its a twin tip, biax wrap, 9 layers of birch at the sidewalls, radial side cut, so basically its a jib slaughtering machine.

So let me begin by saying that i have ridden a number of boards over the past couple of years, GNU riders choice, K2 darkstar, forum jp walker, Salomon prospect, gnu carbon high beam.... as well as some others. By far this is the funnest board ive ever ridden. I was a little worried about it holding an edge due to it having a soft to medium flex pattern, but to my surprise it held as good of an edge as my darkstar, not as good as my Riders choice though. I couldnt believe how easily you could butter the board, as well as how much pop it had. With all this buttery fun it could actually hold a strong edge with very little chatter which is rare for a park board. It transitioned in and out of turns with ease, the board just sort of Flowed with you, reminded me of the darkstar once again, but just not as aggressive.
Now, when it came to park this is where the board truely shined. Anywhere from setting up for the jib, to actually saving your ass on a board slide was all very easy. It made jibbing feel way too easy, when board sliding it locked down and never felt like it was going to slide out from under you. Not once did i catch an edge, nor was it ever hard to spin on the box. This thing has mad pop for not carbon stringers (this is where the birch and bamboo strip comes in handy). The base was slick enough to keep up withone anyone riding a freeride monster of a board, but was managable enough to keep your speed just right. Also, the base was tough as nails, after a full day of jibbing there was hardly a scratch on the board. I was even surpised with jumps. I was expecting this board to wash out on me on jumps, surprising enough it actually landed pretty decently for being a 154 and only a biax wrap. I wouldnt recomend this board for someone looking to stomp 50ft jumps, if your looking for that look at the riders choice, the riders choice is the best board ive ever ridden for hitting any size jump.
 
Overall, i would recommend this board for someone who wants a good jib board that can hang with the WWW, stairmaster, and kink, but can also ride the rest of the mountan without chattering like a two dollar hooker in wintertime, and can actually hold an edge instead of riding like a noodle.

 I've got the 09, its a great board, its stiffer than i imagined. I'm not saying it's stiff but my friends k2 www non rocker, and my other friends gnu riders choice are both easily more flexible. lets just say tailblock are not the easiest thing. great ride none the less.
