2009 Good Wood: Stepchild Powder Sucks

Photo: Nick Hamilton

With its softer flex and true-twin shape, this board is built for the park--hence the name. With extra layers of fiberglass over the inserts for added stability, it'll do just as good all over the mountain, and maybe even in, god forbid, the powder.

Tester feedback:

"This board is super fun. If you really want to press, it presses, but it's still very stable on jumps."

"FUN. Sweet on rails--good park board."
