"OMG, I am in love with the XOXO," cooed one of our Good Wood gals after an action-packed park lap. "It's everything I want in a park board— Fun, easy to flex, easy to turn, great edge hold without being too much, predictable and stable!" While seemingly good to go when doing it all, this deck shined especially when hitting jumps and party lapping the pipe. Designed by golden gal, Torah Bright, it features a quirky shape with a blunted nose and tail. Made with sustainable Columbian Gold wood blends, the XOXO has fierce, snappy pop. There's rocker between the feet, and camber just outside for added control. "This deck soared off jumps and was extra solid on landings, but I think it's a little on the stiff side for park girls just getting started, but I actually liked the added girth." For ladies looking to flirt with a stiffer, dependable park stick, that won't noodle out on landings, then the XOXO could be for you.

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.
