Near Canada, USA (August 22, 2013) – Gnu has calculated the physics for moving forward while standing sideways and applied this science through the space time continuum to bring you their 2013 / 2014 line-up. These wild, weird, and magical high tech formulas for snowboard propulsion on the variable planes have been taken from their theoretical forms in lab of Dr. Weird to their physical forms in Gnu’s snowboard factory--- hand built in the USA by weirdos with jobs. Gnu’s award winning snowboards with the newest technologies including C3, XC2, and A.S.S. Pickle contours, Easy Rider Bindings, and Weirdwear are now available at retail stores and online gnu.com!
For 2013 / 2014 Forrest Bailey

incorporates Gnu’s A.S.S. Pickle Technology, asymmetrical, symmetrical, synchronization to balance the front and back asymmetrical build of the human body. Go left, go right!
This year American Weirdo Danny Kass
has taken his Olympic medal winning Pro Model
