2009 Good Wood: Nitro T1

Photo: Nick Hamilton

Nitro improved on last year's T1 by adding thicker edges and beech wood stringers. The result is a board that's snappier and stronger than ever. The slimmed up wood-core profile also reduces the swing weight at the tips, while still maintaining enough strength to disperse chatter at high speeds.

Tester feedback:

"No gimmicks, just a sweet-ass board perfect for everything."

"This board is the bomb!"
