MSRP: $449.95

The one word that nearly all testers used to describe the Board of Directors—B.O.D. for short—was "standard." But don't think that's a knock on this true-twin, traditionally cambered deck. One particular fan put it is this way: "Halfway down the first run I stopped and asked myself if there was anything I could critique. There wasn't." Another tester echoed the same sentiments, saying, "It felt like a pretty standard snowboard, which is actually a compliment." He added, "It was forgiving yet aggressive, and was capable of high-speed charging in addition to low-angle butters and carves." One thing some testers were wary of was the B.O.D.'s 3D shape in the nose and the tail—welcomed forgiveness for some and a looseness that took adjustment for others. General consensus was that this feature complemented the otherwise aggressive profile to create a balanced ride.

Good Wood 2019 presented by evo.com.

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.
