"Pretty stiff for park (i.e. jibbing), but it busts through the thick 'taters well."

About the 2014 Good Wood Snowboard Test

Looking for reviews of the best snowboards for the 2013/2014 season? For the 15th annual TransWorld SNOWboarding Good Wood Snowboard Test we split the test into two and took 16 experienced testers to Woodward Tahoe at Boreal, California for the park test and Sierra-at-Tahoe, California for the all-mountain portion. Our testers rode hundreds of decks to deliver the best boards from the most comprehensive snowboard test in the industry.
