A Good Wood regular at this point, testers were attracted to this twin-tipped hybrid camber board for its versatility and easy maneuverability. With positive camber between the inserts, and a transition from zero camber to a slight rocker outside, testers found the Birds to be a forgiving and easy ride. Certainly not as aggressive as other boards that made this list, testers deemed it a prime choice for intermediate riders looking to progress. From party laps with your crew, to spinning, jumping, and laying down carves, the Birds of a Feather is ready to take you under its wing.

Good Wood 2019 presented by

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.
