Product Info

One board that's not going out of style any time soon, in this economy or any other, is the GNU Essential Service Snowboard. A directional speed demon for freeriders seeking out secret stashes and sketchy steeps. The C2 Hybrid profile perfectly blends rocker and camber so you can rip everything from fresh powder to spicy chunder fields, while Magne-Traction steak knife edges allow you to slice your line like a medium-rare filet mignon no matter how firm the snow. A portion of the proceeds from this board goes to @theserviceboard to mentor kids and create awesome outdoor experiences, much like the ones you'll get from the GNU Essential Service Snowboard.
