Womens Pro Team
Maria Debari has snowboarding in her blood. Her parents set up their life and family in Glacier, WA for the love of snow and mountains, and the apples obviously didn’t fall far from the tree. She’s proven herself on the contest scene as a North Face Masters Tour champion as well as the World Freeride Tour champion. But, Maria has only just begun. She is one of the strongest riders out there, and certainly one of the most stealth. Her love of the mountains means she doesn’t need an audience to perform, she is out there charging regardless of who is there to witness. She can keep up with Temple on the splitboard, uphill and down. Maria Debari is true Gnu, and a true northwest legend in the making.

GNU B-Pro Splits
I love my B-Pro splitboard because it is light on the way up and rides like a regular B-Pro snowboard on the way down.
Curious Questions and Answers
Tell me a story about a day on your board:
Once upon a time when ordinary life seemed a little dull, I embarked on a journey in search of an energy vortex that would rebirth my soul. For the first time in 26,000 years, the sun, moon, and constellation Pleides aligned in a solar eclipse directly over Mt. Shasta. I entrusted my magical B-Pro split board and together we made the pilgrimage up the mighty south face to the summit. At 6:26pm on May 20, the moon slid completely in front of the sun and a portal opened, denoted by a series of eight radiating circular rainbows of which my shadow was the center. If I jumped, I could spend my life living among the Lemurians in the girth of Mt. Shasta. It was a tough decision, but in the end I realized that split boards would have no use inside the mountain, and I still had plans to ride mine. I waved to the Lemurians as the moon slipped by the sun and the portal closed. Then I strapped into my B-Pro split board and the lovers, the pegasus unicorns, and I rode off the summit of Mt. Shasta in perfect corn snow conditions. My soul has been recharged and I have no regrets.
These split boards share the same tech as the B-pro, one of the top selling women's boards of all time. Split boards aren't just for big mountain hippies anymore! The B-pro splits truly open up a world of adventure and magic to riders of all backgrounds and abilities. I finally got to put a Gnu girls team trip together and squeeze all the activities that I love to do into one week in my home area. We did an S4 trip on the Olympic Peninsula, in Mervin's backyard. Snowboarder Mag will do a better job of telling the story but it was one of those weeks that came together even better than I imagined. Powder to ride, B-Pro splits to access the goods, sunshine to light up the mountain, waves to wake up to, and a fun motivated crew to ride, surf, skate and spa with.
