Ever seen a pickle rolling around the park? Sounds bizarre, but I have seen a lot more than usual lately and decided to look into these "Park Pickles". The Gnu Park Pickle is a 2010 board and it has an asymmetrical side cut which makes heelside turns much smoother. As I researched more about this board, I read a lot about how smooth frontside spins are because of this new technology(the sidecuts are deeper on the heelside). Also, aside from its name, it seems awesome on groomers and in powder. When compared to the Libtech Skate Banana, the verdict was that it was a bit stiffer, which was a good attribute and also that you didn't need as much preload and pop to hit some of those bigger features. All the reviews I read were positive for the "Park Pickle". So, if you're looking for a new snowboard and are unsure of what you want or need, the Gnu Park Pickle looks like a good choice. It seems like a very versatile snowboard that allows you to have all the freedom you'd like. [caption id="attachment_3576" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption=" "][/caption]
