The 2018 Gnu Hyak is a progression machine designed to make your snowboarding improve in leaps and bounds, whether you're just learning your first turns or perfecting your tricks in the park. Made with a forgiving camber and flex pattern, the Hyak won't punish you for trying new things, and will help you keep your feet on the ground when other boards would put you down. The directional twin shape gives you a bit of design flair but still lets you ride switch comfortably, so you've really got no excuse to not hit that feature, take that harder run, or try something new with this board.
