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.
