Hi, I'm Jenna. I just got off the Gnu Velvet Guru. I give this board 4 out of 5 stars. It's a great board for your intermediate to advanced level girl looking for just an all mountain performance board. It's not super stiff, but because it has magnatraction it holds an edge at higher speeds pretty well. Not your total charger board, but you can definitely get it up to speed and you're not going to feel a lot of chatter. It has EC2, so you actually have rocker between the bindings and then camber under the bindings, but it's the elliptical camber, not the traditional camber. So, I just really felt like you had a lot of control, a lot of pop, just an all around fun board.

Hey, I'm Kelsey. I just got off the Gnu Velvet Guru. This is a great board for that intermediate-advanced rider. I give this a 4 out of 5. It's super flexible, it's easy to butter, easy to switch. It's a very playful board, it's not very stiff at all, so if you're looking to really hold an edge and work on your carving, this is probably not the board for you, but if you're looking to throw a couple spins in the park and it's a great all mountain board for that and yeah, I gave it a 4 out of 5.

Hi, I'm Emily. I just got off of the Gnu Velvet Guru. This board's a great board for a beginner to advanced-intermediate park rider. I give it a 3.5 out of 5 stars today because I was looking for a little bit more stability out of the nose and tail when you're landing, but it does have a lot of pop, a lot of butterability. If you're looking for something that's easy to swing around, that can really take your spins to the next level and give you a lot of confidence, this board absolutely does that. So, if you're that park rider or really looking to become that park rider, the Velvet Guru would be a good board for you.

Hi, my name's Kara. I just got off the Gnu Velvet Guru. I would give this a 3 out of 5 stars. At high speeds it holds an edge pretty good, but you definitely gotta put some power behind it, it's definitely more for an advanced-intermediate rider or an advanced rider. And when you go to play in the park, it's still got a little pop, but not as much as some of your other boards. Once again, I'd give it 3 out of 5 stars.
