For the 2009 GNU Danny Kass BTX they added “Banana Technology” to his Pro model series making it a true twin tip.  Banana Technology incorporates a ‘banana’ rocker under foot which reduces catch at the ends of the board, allowing the board to float through tight transitions.  The board also incorporates Magne-traction, providing superior edge hold in sketchy conditions.

To top it all off, the board features some great goulish graphics, crafted by GNU art man Tim Karpinski.  According to GNU: “Pinski lives in an old haunted house in Portland, Oregon and hangs out with witches.”
