When Jamie Anderson isn’t winning Olympic Golds, topping podiums the world over or filming ground-breaking video parts, she makes her home in Whistler, receiving over 11 metres of average annual snowfall it’s no surprise she wanted a powder specific slayer to make the most of her local mountain.
Its bodacious waist width, 3inch setback and healthy taper, make the Free Spirit a purpose-built powder cannon, but scratch beneath the surface and you’ll find a snowboard that’s more than capable of ripping when the tide’s low.
“It’s shorter running length and tight sidecut mean that the Free Spirit can turn on a dime, ideal for weaving between trees, threading tight lines or digging trenches on the hardpack”
Who Is The Gnu Free Spirit For?
You’re a powder hound who chases the storms and wants something that you can ride with confidence in the blower pow, but you don’t want to have to relegate it to your garage come spring.
You’re not fussed about riding park, or you’ve got a quiver to make use of when you fancy spending the day between the ropes. With its stiffer flex and camber dominant profile you’ll need to be a confident rider to make the most of the Free Spirit, but if you can tame the beast, you’ll have a snowboard that can handle whatever you throw its way.
