The Burton Rewind was one of the most aggressive boards tested, commended for its comfort and stability. "It was fun to feel the pop underfoot; I immediately felt comfortable and confident hitting jumps," a tester commented. Sporting a poppy positive camber profile that ends just outside of each channel, before transitioning to a bit of early rise in the nose and tail, the twin-tipped Rewind offered plenty of pop. When it came time to take this heavy hitter to metal—or wood, in Carinthia's case—some testers found it stiff. The consensus on the Rewind was that of solidity not softness.

Buying a new snowboard shouldn't be an arduous task. But with hundreds of options to choose from, narrowing down options can be an overwhelming process. The internal struggle boils down to the reality that these things aren't cheap. With that in mind, Good Wood's intent has always been to best serve you in your quest to purchase the deck most deserving of your money. This season, our diverse crew of testers returned to the steeps of Snowbird, Utah for the all-mountain category and the progressive features of Carinthia at Mount Snow, Vermont for the park division. In the end, we came back with a collection of boards that are worthy of TransWorld's esteemed Good Wood stamp of approval.
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.
