Academy Serenity ($399)

There’s nothing but tranquil vibes on this ride that’s constructed with a soft-to-medium flex bound by a true twin shape. The wood-composite core makes it nearly a quarter lighter than a full grain deck, while still retaining the same enduring snap, shape, and flex. The cambered version won, but this model is also offered in an easier riding reverse camber 143 and 146.

Tester Feedback:

“Great board all around. Feels stable on take-offs and landings. Slow, mellow, turn initiation. Really fun for pressing!”

Sizes: 140, 145, 150
