A premium pick for freestyle ladies who love to get jibby with it, the She-W is a high-end park board designed to inspire us to take things to the next level. Testers said they felt comfortable going for it because of the forgiving, soft flex. “I tried butters I didn’t think were possible, but this board pressed so smoothly and locked in so nicely I thought I could do anything!” a surprised tester said. The twin-tip, traditional camber deck with Triple Base Technology also has stringers of hardwood from the tip to the tail, which help snap ollies and add stability to its ride. Carbon fiber inlays also increase underfoot control but don’t mess with the overall soft flex.
Length (cm) – Sidecut Radius (m) – Waist Width (cm)
140 – 7.2 – 23.3
143 –7.4 – 23.6
146 – 7.5 – 23.9
149 – 7.7 – 24.2
(Flex is not standardized and differs by brand. The rating here is the best estimate of the board’s flex.)
(Sidecut Radius: If you arced the tightest turn possible to make a complete circle, the sidecut radius would be the distance between the direct center of that circle and its rim, in meters. A board with a deeper sidecut would have a smaller radius and would generally make tighter turns. As the radius number increases, a board can be expected to make wider turns. Multiple numbers on the same length board means the radius is blended.)
