The General Public proves to be a fitting name for this board that aims to please just about everyone – from our veteran park testers looking for a deck that's versatile from the rails to the pipe, to the beginner in search of a forgiving ride that they won't quickly grow out of after a season. It's all thanks to Public's Alert profile, which features regular camber between the feet and rocker on the tip and tail, creating a responsive, yet loose enough ride that our testers praised for its ability to lock into presses while still remaining both poppy and stable. "It was definitely poppy, stable and predictable," claimed one pleased tester. "It locked into presses, held an edge well, and generally (no pun intended) did everything I wanted it to – all while providing an aggressive ride that could be playful at times, too." So regardless of your expertise, don't hesitate to conform with the General Public.

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.
