Keeping snowboarding weird for over 30 years. Gnu snowboards was founded in the early 80's by Mike Olson who pioneered deep carving side cuts and has been hand building snowboards since 1977. Mike Olson is also the man behind Lib Tech so you will find the same and very similar technology used. Every Gnu Snowboard is still hand built by snowboarders with jobs in the USA just like they were in the beginning. Gnu likes to keep it weird and are not afraid to experiment with new technologies. They have got a really impressive snowboard team including Danny Kass, Forest Bailey and Mathieu Crepel to name a few.
