Gentemstick Hornet 2019 Review by The Good Ride

The Gentemstick Hornet is an interesting board. It has a lot more tail than the Fish’s in their line but still has a very similar feel underfoot to those.  We are personally more into the Independent line and felt that appealed to our riding style more but this has a very niche appeal for that person that wants to get closer to surfing snow than your average tapered directional board and you mainly ride powder.  It’s small, a bit bucky, and requires careful technical turning but if you adjust to its unique feel underfoot it can be a fun ride. It’s short and pretty fat but quick.   Especially in powder.

Ethics Statement: We don’t get paid by the manufacturer to write these reviews.  We do make money from the “Where To Buy” links, but this is our best attempt at an honest and objective review from an average riders’ perspective.
