Hi I'm Jenna I just got off the girls version of the Gnu Park Pickle I give this board 5/5 stars really fun board it actually really surprised from a couple of reson its a fairly softer board its a park board a great freestyle board but because you've got the Magnatraction which is if you could see up close it actually has a wavy sidewall what that does is it acts like a serrated knife it basically gives you more contact points with the snow meaning that I could take a softer board like this and I could actually ride really fast and really hard on it and it would still hold its edge super well especially for being a rockered board so this board is rockered as well it makes it real fun real playful but sometimes rockered board get a little bit squirrley especially at higher speeds but not with this this Magnatraction just really helped really helped it hold its edge real well at higher speeds no the thing with the pickle that makes it a little bit different is it actually has whats called an asymmetrical side cut the thought behind this is that when you tranfer energy from you toe into your heel you're not using the same amount of pressure your feet aren't symmetrical so the side cut of the board shouldn't be symmetrical so you actually have a wide cut on the heel edge and a little bit shallower side cut on the toes again because it takes more effort more engergy to transfer the energy to your heel edge so just a super fun board very smooth again a great park board bt you can take it anywhere on the mountain and it really edge its edge well really performed real well
