Gilson Nirvana 2020 Review by The Good Ride
The Gilson Nirvana is their freestyle deck for women. It has a flat to rocker camber, a medium soft flex, and their 3D base soft edge. It makes for a super loose ride at lower edge angles, and a very locked in ride when using a high edge angle. The Nirvana has a longer effective edge and it’s recommended that you size down because if feels and rides slightly bigger than it actually is.
Gilson boards take a bit to get used to, and have a very unique way of riding.. But they are fun boards, and if you are looking for a new view on riding this could be a fun way to go.
