A very solid, well finished board at first glimpse, the generous rocker on the nose and two flat sections on the tail and nose provide great floatability. The Gara Ranger allows you to think big. Perfect to shred wide turns and charge the mountain at high speed. We loved the tail, which allows you to initiate the turn quickly and is perfect to pivot safely while turning on sketchy terrain, thus making it an excellent option if big mountains are your playground of choice. The light traditional camber and wide sidecut keep it stable when you press hard on it. It’s a stiff board and it’ll require all the power your legs can give out to make the most of it.
