Product Info

The GNU Essential Service Snowboard is a no brainer for all mountain riders seeking out the lesser known stashes of their local resort. The C2 Hybrid profile blends rocker and camber so you can rip everything from fresh cord to deep pow, while Magne-Traction serrated edges allow you to slice your line like a medium-rare filet mignon no matter how firm the snow. To top things off, a portion of all proceeds goes directly to @theserviceboard to mentor kids and create awesome outdoor experiences, much like the ones you'll get from this awesome snowboard. *Please Note: This is a factory blem product. It may have slight cosmetic issues that do not impact performance.*

Rocker Type

C2 ContourPerfectly balanced all terrain contour. Mild rocker between your feet with powerful cambers to the tips and tails. Enough power pop and precision to technically hit the biggest wedges, enough float and freedom to rip the gnarliest AK pow lines. Carves the resort, plays in the park, and slays powder.


Medium Flex


G Lite 2 FCS Certified Aspen + Paulownia CoreLight, strong, and poppy.


Triaxial / Biaxial FiberglassStrong and poppy


UHMW SidewallsTough and fast


Eco Sublimated Sintered BaseFast, tough, and holds wax.


Magne-Traction®7 strategically located and sized edge serrations provide unreal edge hold and control in all conditions.
