Signal Vita Park ($349)
This repeat Good Wood winner is making a name for itself in the test with an easy-to-ride park shape. It has a forgiving, two-way fiberglass weave with a urethane topsheet to reduce chatter and provide a consistent flex. The lightweight poplar core is thinned out at the tip and tail for easy presses, butters and jibs, but that doesn’t make it damp-the board’s got pop.
Sizes: 135, 143, 147, 151, 153
“Really easy to load up, pop, and jump or press. Super solid for cruisers as well.”
