Ever thought about what you’d get if you threw the Salomon Gypsy into some sort of a time machine just to find out what it looked like before it grew up? Well, no need to spend your days wondering about that anymore – just have a look at the Salomon Gypsy Grom.

Following in the footsteps of her big sister, the Salomon Gypsy, the Salomon Gypsy Grom is made for the little rippers out there. Salomon’s basically taken the grown-up version of the board, shrunk it down and made the tech more suited for the young guns.

“The Salomon Gypsy Grom is both easy to manoeuvre and light”

This is a soft little board, thus making it a fitting choice for the little ones who want to learn to turn. In addition to being an ideal beginner board, the Salomon Gypsy Grom does make a great choice for the kids who already know they want to pursue a path on the freestyle front.

The Popster core maximises the boards natural snap, making it easy to practice your ollies with. Add the thin and thick sections of Aspen wood to the core, and you can be sure to get flex where it is most needed.

Making this little ripper even more ideal for the youngsters are the bite free edges. These prevent you from catching an edge and thus making hang-ups a thing of the past. In addition to that, you’ll have the royal rubber sidewalls, which dampen the vibrations and make the board more shock absorbent, allowing you a smoother ride all-in-all.

The Salomon Gypsy Grom is both easy to manoeuvre and light. This soft flexing camrock board is more or less an exact copy of its big sister, thus making it another freestyle friendly fun jib board… only smaller.

Tester’s Verdict 2018/19

Ella’s Comments

“I love the graphic on this board – it turned really well, and I was confident going quickly. My dad set the bindings back in the powder and it worked well. I liked the way it rode set back and left it like that. I found it easy to ride switch as well”

Dad’s Comments

“This and the Salomon Villain Grom were some of the first boards we tested. The kids were coming off easy to ride flat or rockered profile boards, and the change to a more cambered profile was instantly noticeable.

A camber board feeds energy back to them through the turn, and I saw their riding progress from the first runs. The Gypsy Grom is a great board for taking your kids to a more advanced level.”
