Like most everything Bryan Iguchi does, his pro model board was designed with intent. 'Guch rides with a powerful form of grace that comes with decades spent on a board, strapped in and not. This authoritative finesse shines through in the stiff, traditionally cambered profile balanced out by slightly elevated contacts points. The board is an aggressive carver and booster with a forgiving side, which instills almost immediate confidence upon strapping in. One tester commented that, "It’s a hard-charging board that will make you a better rider if you have the strength to push it. It can get you out of a sketchy situation just as quickly as you can get into one." Multiple testers noted its weight—some felt the board could be lightened for optimal performance, while others appreciated the solid feel when charging through unpredictable terrain. Also notable of the Bryan Iguchi Pro is its minimal rise in the tip and tail. This helps the board plane in the pow and is somewhat of a hallmark characteristic of this model, along with its lift in the contact points, which also proved to be a polarizing characteristic of the board. One camp of riders praised the feature's forgiveness factor while another sect mentioned that they'd appreciate more traditional edge profiling.

Good Wood 2018 presented by

With hundreds of options available, how do you pick the best snowboard for you and your riding? The 2017-2018 Good Wood board test is a great place to start. Every board in here has been through rigorous rounds of testing in the environments it's intended for, and passed. Between the feature-filled freestyle terrain at Carinthia at Mount Snow in Vermont, and the rugged steeps of Snowbird, Utah, our eclectic and discerning testers rode and rated hundred of snowboards, ultimately concluding that these are the pinnacle of this season's freestyle and freeride offerings, respectively. Our crew is comprised of riders of riders of vastly varying sizes and backgrounds, with two commonalities: they're all experienced snowboarders with astute product knowledge. When a board stokes out the majority of this group, it means something. In addition to the park and all-mountain Good Wood accolades, we award two boards in each category with the “Bang for your Buck” designation, meaning they're the top-performers with the lowest price tags. Now in its 19th year, TransWorld SNOWboarding's Good Wood is the longest-running and most credible snowboard test on the planet.

How The Boards Are Scored

Shortly after ripping laps on each model, our testers score the board based on a comprehensive set of characteristics that include edgehold, pop, swingweight, turn initiation, stability, and flex. The scorecards for the park and all-mountain categories of the test each have unique and specific criteria designed to pinpoint the strengths and weakness of a snowboard in the setting respective to its category. Beyond the quantifiable scoring, we also ask testers to comments on each facet of the board's performance. These notes we refer to extensively when writing each review. Dive into the results and see what performed for our testers, then find what will work for you.
