As a past Good Wood queen, the Stria delivers a royal dose of park technology with a featherlight Park Fly III core, sintered base, and perfectly manicured edge tune. It’s rounded out with a buttery tip and tail, and the infinite number of stance options offered by the ICS system.

Tester feedback:

“Riding the Stria is like driving a Mercedes. It’s so responsive, give it an inch and it gives you a mile. Jumping this board is amazing.”

“This was probably the best board I’ve ridden for turning. It was so responsive and fun! I would use this as a jump board for sure.”

Available sizes: 146, 149, 153
