Salomon Official ($559)
It’s official: this deck rules. Year after year, the Good Wood test crew has agreed that this board is tops. Is it because of the clinching and kinked “Equalizer” edges? The bump-absorbing, rubber-lined sidewalls? The profile-perfect, poppy core? The generously lifted and shaped twin-tips? All that and more. A solid choice for aggressive freestyle riding.
Sizes: 148, 152, 154W, 155, 158, 158W, 161, 162W
“Fun, fun, fun-I loved it. So good for jumping! On the stiffer side, but super stable, good edge control, and good sidecut.”
