Weird times for a long time
Gnu was created in a hypothermia induced delirium in the early 80′s by Mike Olson who has been building snowboards since 1977. Mike Pioneered Deep sidecuts and too many other odd things to mention here. Today Mike has been joined by a Gnu intellectual spiritual creative collective who’s body temperatures have climbed to near fever levels. Mind and performance expanding philosophies, geometries, materials and technologies spawned in the resulting creative delirium have been incorporated into this year’s Gnu body of work.
See galaxies, earth, nature and humans as they really are, recognize simple anatomical designs and patterns that are all around us. Complexity becomes simplicity, solutions appear in our minds as bright colored gifts. Synchronization and balance achieved through awareness and a harmonizing oppositional interaction with natural asymmetry. The Impossible becomes possible. Every gnu is still handbuilt by snowboarders with jobs in the USA just like they were in the beginning.
