With a high performance to price ratio the Carbon Credit is easy to ride and easy to progress on. Danny Kass originally started on this all terrain freestyle performance board. Built with premium components and amazingly priced, this board rips for all abilities on the hardpack and ice, kills the jibs and floats the powder unbelievably. The Carbon Credit is good to go, from beginner to pro.

    My bf is 6’3, 220lbs, US size 12.5 boot. He’s still a beginner and all we do is jib. Not interested in speed. He just manuals, spins, and plays all day. He loves the flex on his buddies 153 or 156 (unsure) CC, but he realizes he needs something a bit bigger (and wide model, correct?)
    What would you recommend for him to buy? He’d love a CC but isnt sure what size. What size CC do tou recommend? And what other board should I show him?

  • http://gnu1516.wpengine.com/ GNU

    I think the 156W will be the best size if he is only jibbing–we do also make the board in a 153W, but I think it will be too small for him. If he’s spending time outside the park, cruising the whole mountain or riding more natural terrain, or if he plans on doing that at all in the future, the 159W will be a A LOT more suitable!

    This would be my number on board recommendation for him, but also check out the Smart Pickle and the Skate Banana by Lib Tech. They all have a similar shape and will be super fun and forgiving to progress with.

  • Tarald

    does the CC and space case have the same amount of rocker brtween the feet as the 2013 park pickle?
    also what sise would you recommend for a 195cm 90kg rider for park?

  • http://gnu1516.wpengine.com/ GNU

    If you’re only riding park, 159.
    But if you want something a bit more versatile, 162.
    And if your feet are bigger than 11 US, then you should go for a WIDE board.

    The Smart Pickle and the Carbon Credit will have comparable Banana, but the Space Case has EC2, which means it also has some mild camber underfoot…so that one will not be as similar.

  • inecs

    Please help me to choose the size of the board for beginner.

    Hight – 168 cm, weight – 99 kg, boots – EU 39.

    Thank you!

  • nick

    Hi, I plan to get this board but i don’t know what size to get, can you please help me pick what size of board to pick please, I am 1,65 m (5,41 foot ), I’m using size 7us size boots and I weight 65,9 kg.

  • http://gnu1516.wpengine.com/ GNU

    Hi!
    For a beginner rider with a height of 168 cm and a weight of 99kg, I would probably recommend the 150.

  • http://gnu1516.wpengine.com/ GNU

    Hi Nick,
    You could easily ride anything between 147-153.
    Go with a smaller size if you want to ride park and jibs, go bigger if you want to spend time in deeper snow and riding the entire mountain.

  • Danny

    Hi, can someone tell me the difference between a wide board and a normal board, in how it effects the preformance and stuff. In shoe size i’m right between the two.

  • http://gnu1516.wpengine.com/ GNU

    Hi Danny,
    Wide boards will prevent toe drag for people with big feet.
    If someone with smaller feet rides a wide board, it will feel extra stable but probably a little difficult to maneuver and get onto edge.

  • tyler

    I heard that next year or when the season starts up again you will no longer be selling this board and I was looking into it because the price is good and I am looking for a board with the potential to be used as a beginner and a pro so I just wanted more details
    Thanks

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Hi Tyler,
    The Carbon Credit is in our 2015/16 line, so we will be selling it…just not this exact 2014/15 graphic.
    This board is going to be ideal to learn and progress on because of the BTX (Banana) base contour. The board kicks up at the nose and tail and will be forgiving and harder to catch and edge with, it’s also got a softer flex and it’s going to feel poppy and playful. But it also has Magne-Traction (wavy edges), which means you get seven points of contact along the edges rather than just two! You’ll really be able to lock into your turns without washing out.

    If you’re a really aggressive rider, this may not be the best option for you (Check out the Metal Gnuru for a more powerful/aggressive board). But if you want something that’s fun, forgiving and easy to ride everywhere, the Carbon Credit is UNREAL!!

  • tyler

    Thanks that helped a lot I will definitely be getting this as my next board whenever the time comes

  • grorges

    Hey i bought a 147 cc and i am a size 9.5 does a gnu psych large binding fit on the 147 board ?

  • Joe D

    Completely new rider here and just wondering what size of this GNU board would be best for me.

    I’m 5’8″ 165 lbs and wear a size 10 boot. I was thinking the 153 but not sure if this is too small for me. Also can you recommend a good pair of bindings as well?

    I am not really looking into hitting jumps or going down rails just yet. Still want to work on the basics but want a board that can handle high speeds if need be.
    Would you recommend any other boards? Just want something that is versatile.

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Yeah that should be just fine, particularly with size 9.5 boots!

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Hi Joe,
    The Carbon Credit is going to be our best board to learn on, and it will still be suitable as your progress into more intermediate and advanced levels of riding. It’s easy to ride, yet still versatile. You could also check out the Metal Gnuru, which is a little step up in performance and price–it’ has a little bit of camber underfoot, which will add stability and response.

    I think you’ll want to go with something in the 153-155 range, unless you live somewhere where it tends to snow a lot and you want to spend a lot of time riding powder..if that’s the case go with 156-158!

    For bindings, you’ll want something with a soft to medium flex…so for Gnu bindings that would be the Street or Psych. Any brand aside from Burton’s EST system will be compatible with our boards, though. So as long as you get something that isn’t super stiff and that fits comfortably with your boots, you’ll be stoked!

  • Joe D

    Great breakdown and thanks for answering all my questions. You guys are running a awesome site here with excellent customer service. I’m most likely going to purchase this board so I appreciate the insight.

  • Nadezhda Alfimova

    Hello! I need an advise. I’m an intermediate boarder and I need the new board mainly for all mountain boarding. At first I considered only lady’s models(like velvet guru), than I decided to check unisex of suitable size (f.e. Carbon credit). I’m 169cm, 65kg. What would you recommend and why? Thank you in advance, Nadia

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Hi Nadia,
    I generally recommend women’s boards to womens–they generally have a more mellow flex pattern and more narrow width, which gives them a more easy and forgiving feel. This is ideal for learning!

    The B-Nice is pretty much the women’s equivalent of the Carbon Credit, and I think you’ll love the 148! The BTX base contour is catch-free and will be great for learning and progressing.
    The 147 Velvet Gnuru is another really great option. It lifts up a bit underfoot, which we call EC2, or elliptical camber. This gives it a slightly more powerful feel with a little extra edge hold compared to the B-Nice. It might be a bit harder to learn on, but it still very much a forgiving and easy ride.
    The Ladies Gateway in 149 is another great option. It’s very similar to the B-Nice, but it has a designated heel edge with a softer flex and more dramatic sidecut, it will feel more intuitive and natural to turn with. It also has a more faster/harder/more durable base material.

    You’ll love any of those boards and they’ll be easy to learn on, but you won’t outgrow them as you enter more intermediate and advanced levels of riding!

  • Nadezhda Alfimova

    HI! Thanks very much for your advices! I made my choice :)

  • Percy Giebelhaus

    I am 5″11, 155lbs, size 11.5 boots and i mainly ride hit boxes, rails and jumps. I will occasionally hit powder maybe once a year. I don’t do a lot of high speed carving and I am thinking of getting the 153W or the 156W. The 153W has 26.1 cm in waist width and the 156W has 26.7 cm in waist width. I am used to a board 152cm with 25.8 cm in waist width. I have 1 inch of toe and heel overhang with a duck stance of +15 -15. You guys think 156W is too big? Should I get 153W or 156W? Please comment. Thanks

  • http://www.gnu.com/ GNU

    Hi Percy,
    That’s a tough call!
    The 156W will definitely help reduce toe drag, but the 153W is still going to be wider than what you’ve been riding, and you’ll probably have more fun on a smaller more jib-friendly board. I would HIGHLY suggest checking the boards out in person if you have a chance. The waist width is a good indicator of width, but your bindings won’t be mounted at the waist of the board, so it’s not 100% accurate. Stance width, binding base height stance angle and the brand/model of boot all also play a role in toe drag.
