The Gnu Ladies Choice is a board created for and by Slopestyle phenom Jamie Anderson, so obviously it needs to have the chops to be able to keep up with one of the best riders on the planet. 

Although defined as a freestyle board, the DNA of the Ladies Choice makes it a veritable piste destroyer as well. Gnu’s C2x camber profile combines subtle rocker between the feet, with camber under each binding for the perfect marriage of aggression, liveliness and float.

“The Ladies Choice is asymmetric to give you more power and drive through your heelside”

The Ladies Choice is asymmetric to give you more power and drive through your heelside, so you’ll be able to create a better balance between your heels and toes whilst carving. It still rides as a twin though, so whether you’re regs or goofy you’ll be able to rock it.

The blend of woods that make up the core are super poppy, and still durable for when you’re throwing your board around in the park. They’ll retain their dynamic feel long after your legs are starting to lose theirs. To add to the lively, snappy nature of the board the camber sections underfoot allow you to spring load the board and help when you’re gearing up for an ollie. 

Gnu has the eco chops that many of us desire, like all their offerings the Ladies Choice is manufactured with bio alternatives and zero hazardous waste. A strong option for confident shredders who are looking to spin, slide and spray over the whole mountain. 

Tester’s Verdict

Stella PenttiWhitelines

I know I’m late to the Ladies Choice party but omg this board is breathtakingly good! Everyone’s always seemed to be super stoked on this board so I’m happy I finally overcame my “not too keen on the design – not going to ride it” issues.
I rode 145.5 sized Ladies Choice and it was perfect for my daily purpose – mellow park laps in January. Luckily, I got to jump on this thing again closer to spring and found it to be super solid on slushy bumpy snow too.

“The Ladies choice felt really stable on the pistes too, and I really loved taking this thing for a spin”

The Ladies choice felt really stable on the pistes, and I really loved taking this thing for a spin. It made every ride feel enjoyable, and even if I rode it quite short, I didn’t feel any lack of stability, which is another great plus.
If you’re all for cruising and having a great time I bet, you’d love this thing. The graphics are a bit out there, but I highly recommend that you get over yourself and give this board a go.

Tester’s Verdict

“The Ladies Choice was an absolute pleasure to ride. A veritable Jill-of-all-trades, it injected a major dose of fun into the day and didn’t stop surprising me the whole time. I absolutely can’t fault it.

This is a complete quiver killer. From early morning icy piste runs, to jibbing around, to sailing through powder, the Ladies Choice left me with no doubt in my mind that this is one of the best snowboards on the market. It has more pop than the Spice Girls, had me flying over any little side hit, and turned the whole piste into a fun park.

“The morning was pretty sketchy and icy, and the edges just dug down and gripped with ease”

The morning was pretty sketchy and icy, and the edges just dug down and gripped with ease, leaving me super confident. Even as the day wore on and the snow started getting heavy and slushy, I had no issues with the board slowing down – the super fast base kept up with ease.

I loved everything about this board, from the graphics, to the eco-friendly ethos, to the unreal day of riding I had. I give it 11 out of 10, and implore you to get out and get on this board!”
