Comments about GNU Pickle PBTX Snowboard 2014:
I am 5'6" at 140 lbs. I rode a size 147 which felt very small being that I normally ride between a 153-156. I am an advance snowboarder that spends more time in the side country than I do in the park. I normally ride all-mountain boards that are considered quiver killers. Boards that I have liked in the past are the Rome Agent and O-Matic Sweet. The Park Pickle at 147 felt small for my size but was extremely fun to ride. The board was very soft and felt very jibby. Despite the soft flex and banana rocker, the board had great edge hold on the hardpacked and the base was quick even through heavy snow. I was able to generate a decent amount of speed when approaching a park kicker and was able to get a decent amount of airtime despite the small size of the board. I have ridden a wide range of board sizes, but would recommend going smaller on the park pickle to take full advantage of the soft flex. As a park board, at my experience level this board felt perfect. I would have liked to ride a slightly longer Park Pickle, but the short size did not have any major affects on my riding.
