Gentemstick Barracuda 2018 - 2016 Review by The Good Ride

The Gentemstick Barracuda is a fun board that felt like the first TT Snowsurf design that worked well with my specs.  I really liked the feeling of this ride compared to the Rocket Fish and Rocket Fish HP.  It’s really poppy and light but still a little bucky in some uneven terrain but it’s much more livable. It’s a great choice for those that like to slash that tail hard but it can also make back foot heavy surfy turns in powder and on groomers. Not bad for a carve either as long as there is lots of weight off the tail. It’s pretty expensive though but at least it’s very unique.

Unsinkable Pow Slaying Dream Craft

Rode one for three days through a blizzard event at Niseko last season. Mind-blowingly good in powder. Perfect craft for chest-deep tree runs and groomers with a few inches of fresh powder. Absolutely unsinkable board that can pick up speed on the flattest of inclines in the deepest snow. Outside of fresh powder conditions I would prefer another board. Too wide/too slow edge to edge, and no camber to aid in edging/carving on harder, uneven snow. The Barracuda will get you through some rough patches, but you'll have to mind your edges and you certainly won't be straight-lining double black hard pack on this board. I'm no Jeremy Jones, but I found the Barracuda to be squirrelly and chattery at speed on anything but the softest and cleanest of surfaces. Very nice craftsmanship, base material is head and shoulders above any snowboard I've ever touched. If you get to ride more than a few powder days a season consider this board or another wide, pure powder board with surf bottom contours. The design is all about maximizing the board's powder riding abilities and makes no compromises or apologies for it's lack of resort manners in sub-optimal conditions. If you're looking for a pure powder board to supplement your all-rounder/daily driver this could be it. The float and the feels while laying down a carve on one of these is amazing!
