2009 Good Wood: Forum Substance

The Substance is essentially a beefed-up version of Forum's popular Youngblood series. Its dual-density sidewalls, medium flex, and four-way weave of fiberglass make it a real workhorse of a park board.

Tester feedback:

"This board was the sickness! Right away I was able to get dirty on it."

"Super stable switch and at high speeds, and tons of pop to get you to the landing on slow days."

Available sizes: 152, 154, 156
