Gnu x DEVO Whip It! Board ($420)

Those Ohioans make funky music. Those weirdos at Gnu create wild rides. Both have “clubs.” Seems like they were destined for a collab, no? This all-terrain, block-tipped asymmetrical twin comes packed with Mervin genius like Magne-Traction, Banana-tech hybrid camber and sustainable ingredients for whipping (i.e. ripping) it up.

Smokin Pow Wow Board ($550)

Part of Smokin’s new Back To The Woods board series, the Pow Wow initially started as a pow deck, but soon transformed into a capable all-mountain ride. It has a cambered back end, rockered nose and a whole slew of Smokin’s grade-A materials and construction. Get ready to throw up some powder smoke signals.
