Don't let its powder-influenced shape deter you, the sweet, seductive Pillow Talk is a quiver killer. Camber dominant with slight rocker in the tail and especially the nose, this deck is tapered and tailored specifically for hard-charging femmes who want it all. Featuring a wider than average design that allows a shorter length for easy maneuverability and increased floatation, it also has superior edge control when slicing through groomers and crusty hardpack. Incredibly responsive with the perfect amount of flex for all-mountain applications, this board is geared for everything from backcountry booters and cliffs, to surf-inspired carves.

Testers Said: "I initially wrote this off as a powder board—and then I rode it. Definitely a surprising quiver killer.”
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.
