2010 Gnu Danny Kass SnowboardGnu Danny Kass Snowboard, $499

Here’s what the testers had to say:

“This board was surprising. If you didn’t know it had Banana rocker and Magne-traction, you’d think it was a stiff, deep, sidecut carver. Fun everywhere because of the soft rocker. Edge hold surprisingly apt.”
“Riders should know they can size down. I usually ride a 155 and the 153 was perfect.”
“Still my favorite board I have ever ridden. It is there for you whenever for whatever, but plays when you want to have fun.”
“This board is amazing. It’s fun on the way to the pipe and perfect in the pipe. Great shape and flex and flawless edge hold.”
“One of the best boards! So great in the pipe, it just accelerates up the walls.”
