Arbor’s aptly named Woodie model¿garnished with the brand’s trademark Hawai’ian koa topsheet¿was revamped for this year’s Top 25 with help from teamrider Jason Schutz.

“We wanted to create a series of boards that have all the necessary qualities for big-mountain riding, yet are supple in transitions and sensitive underfoot,” Jason said.

Seems the formula worked¿especially for Jonathan, who labeled the Woodie his “board for all things.”

Kevin and Kurt also got behind the koa cruiser, calling it respectively “great for long lazy arcs or fast all-mountain lines,” and “a fun, easy-to-ride board.”The Woodie’s not-too-stiff but still stable manner, along with its versatility, make the grade for medium-size riders of all abilities.
