Loaded with a healthy dose of positive camber, an aggressive flex pattern, and deep sidecut, testers heralded the Deep Thinker for its explosive pop and lazer-fast reaction time. One of two Danny Davis-endorsed boards for 2018, this directional creation is what you'll find beneath his feet when there's not a bib on his chest. In the way that Danny's freeriding has a freestyle soul, so too does the Deep Thinker. This board is ready to hit warp speed and take flight on variable terrain. As one tester explained after a morning hotlap on Chip's Run, "Conditions were firm and crusty, and this board charged right through, as stable as could be," continuing, "The narrow waist and deep sidecut combo allows it turn on a dime, and the heavy camber profile makes it super snappy—it's an ideal jumper. It’s got tons of pop, and I’d wager that you’d have a tough time pushing it past its maximum capabilities on any sized feature."

Good Wood 2018 presented by evo.com

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.
