The Salomon Gypsy has been putting spells on our Good Wood testers for years. While it shines in the park, our ladies liked how it could also be ridden in any type of scenario. "This board was fun to turn and easy to ride switch on, and I felt like it was a great combo of stiff yet playful," a veteran park tester remarked. As a medium-flexing deck on Salomon's scale, it's park-oriented, but built for females that aren't afraid to sack up and send it. The Gypsy's profile is flat in the center and then dips out to smaller bits of camber on the contact points, with rocker underfoot through the nose and tail. As Desiree Melancon's pro model, it comes with your choice of top sheets, with one standard (pictured) and one designed by Des.
Flex: 6 /10
Camber: Hybrid—Flat camber with early-rise nose and tail
(Flex is not standardized and differs by brand. The rating here is the best estimate of the board's flex.)
