Best Women’s Park Snowboard 2015-2016
Words: Heather Hendricks
Back as a Good Wood winner for the second year in a row, this deck has rocker between the feet and elliptical cambers out to the contact points, so it was snappy, yet forgiving. The asymmetrical shape was designed specifically for female frames, and its deeper heelside sidecut provided better balance and overall ergonomics. "This board is super sick, poppy, and oh so butterific!" exclaimed a Good Wooder. "From jumping, jibbing, and even boosting out of the pipe, this deck destroyed." Our girls loved this deck, and not just because it's the board of choice for Jamie Anderson.
From our testers: "If you like to do it all, this is the board that needs to be under your feet. Ideal for anyone who wants a kick ass snowboard!"
Length (cm) -- Sidecut Radius (m) -- Waist Width (cm)
145.5 -- 8.1/7.8 -- 24
148.5 -- 8.2/7.9 -- 24.2

153.5 -- 8.3/8.0 -- 24.4
Camber: Hybrid (reverse between inserts, camber to tips)
(Flex is not standardized and differs by brand. The rating here is the best estimate of the board's flex.)
(Sidecut Radius: The measure of how deep or shallow the arc of a board's edge is from the tips to the middle, in meters. A smaller radius, around six to seven meters means a board will generally turn tighter. As the radius number increases, a board can be expected to make wider turns. Multiple numbers on the same length board means the radius is blended.)
