Smokin’s Awesym is a freestyle asymmetric twin shape capable of taking tricks to higher grounds. The medium flex, forgiving rocker, and positive camber hybrid profile make it easy manipulate and drive, and perfect for more freestyle riders. “This board has a really comfortable flex and feel, and a big part of it is the reverse camber between the feet that allows a lot of control between the bindings, letting you steer with your feet and lift up the nose,” one tester described. Another simply called it an “awesome bomber.” Many of our testers found it capable at both slow and fast riding, saying, “It’s playful for a big-mountain crusher, but very confident in the chunder-gnar,” and “It was buttery and fun, but stiff enough to still cruise at high speeds.” Elements of its design that make it playful yet stable at speed are the hemp stringer additives in the tips and added dampening materials. Another in the crew explained, “It turned like a charm in slush and harder stuff, and held a great edge at high speeds. It was really fun on the side hits. Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and this board was just that.”

Flex: 6/10

Camber: CTX Rocker Dominant Camber Combo—rocker center with raised camber tips.

(Flex is not standardized and differs by brand. The rating here is the best estimate of
the board’s flex.)

(Sidecut Radius: If you arced the tightest turn possible to make a complete circle, the sidecut radius would be the distance between the direct center of that circle and its rim, in meters. A board with a deeper sidecut would have a smaller radius and would generally make tighter turns. 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.)

Good Wood 2017 Presented by evo.com

With hundreds of snowboards out there, how do you pick the best deck perfectly suited to the way you ride? Drop into our 2016-2017 Good Wood Board Test for the winning snowboards of the season. Our 30 unique testers spent eight days riding and rating more than 300 boards at Carinthia Parks of Mount Snow, Vermont, and the pistes and glades of Aspen Mountain, Colorado, and came to the consensus that these are the best boards. Each tester rides differently, so there's something to be said when a board stokes all who tried it. We've done away with the old price groupings and instead highlighted the two top-scoring boards in each category with the lowest prices and awarded them “Bang for your Buck” badges of approval. Now in its 18th year, our TransWorld SNOWboarding Good Wood test is the longest running and most prestigious board test on the planet.

How The Boards Are Scored

Shortly after shredding laps on each board, our testers input scores for different characteristics that measure each deck on a sliding scale. The Park and All-Mountain scorecards each have different criteria to pinpoint the strengths and weakness of each snowboard. We don't cut the boards open and examine the details, but the crew may have broken a deck or two… Go on, dive into the results and see all the winners.
