Gentemstick Chaser HP 2019 Review by The Good Ride
The Gentemstick Chaser HP, like the Hornet, is a very tapered directional pretty light really poppy unique ride that isn’t for everyone. However, if you match up with the riding style this board prefers it might be the kind of board you want to bring home to meet mom. For me, the style of rider this board prefers doesn’t match my style when it comes to riding groomers so it took some time and effort for me to start learning how to adapt to this board. After some time I began to start understanding the front foot heavy articulate type of ride but I still have a long way to go to understand how to really rail this when turning. It seems like it prefers those that want to slow down to make the most out of every turn. I can see why some of my friends like boards like this and spend lots of time integrating their style to this type of board. However, In powder, the Chaser HP had a minimal learning curve and floated like a champ.
