The 2019 GNU Free Spirit is what Jamie Anderson trades her competition board for when the snow gets deep. This female-specific short, wide model is made for zipping through the trees, carving up groomers, and floating through deep powder without breaking a sweat. The extended nose and turned up tail of the Free Spirit float effortlessly and power over rough snow, and the short contact points and deep sidecut let you turn hard and fast, plus the naturally wider waist width allows you to size down for more agile performance without sacrificing float or drag-free turns. Take on the mountain with confidence with this eco-friendly freeride masterpiece.
Board Type: Groomers and powder
Camber Type: C3
Very mild rocker between your feet with powerful camber to the tip and tail. This is Mervins version of traditional camber, offering maximum edge hold, pop, power and precision with extra float and carve.

This board has a floaty nose, slightly tapered tail, and a setback stance for effortless float in powder and powerful forward-facing performance.
