Transworld Snowboard Mag recently released their highly anticipated “Good Wood” Snowboard Test results. The crew reviewed and tested over 400 boards at Mt. Bachelor and narrowed them down to the best thirty. These remaining boards represent the best in the industry for 2013. Here are five of our favorite boards to make the list:
K2 – Happy Hour – $480
“Don’t let the simple graphics fool you. There’s more than meets the eye in this pointy pick. A pre-curved carbon Ollie Bar between the feet helps you load up on Ollies, and carbon stringers toward the tips add pop and stability. The new Tweakend tip shape creates longer rockered zones to float, press, and land on. With a straight-up flat board profile, you get a smooth feel that’s neither too loose nor too catchy.”
Nitro – Rook – $500
“Your chariot de shred. The Rook is built with a flat camber profile that’s easy to press, float, pop, and still hold an edge when you have to dig in. Those edges are also 50 percent thicker than the standard, so they can take hits without cracking. New this year is thinner core profiling between the feet for better board feel and flex, and thicker zones outside the feet for ollie and landing power. Another additive for 2013 is a tip-to-tail slab of fiberglass for added pop.”
Capita – Defenders of Awesome – $380
“New to Capita’s line, this is your all-mountain destroyer. You’ve got good ol’ camber beneath your feet extending five centimeters past the outer inserts, flat camber out to the end of the effective edge, then a light rise of reverse camber into Capita’s Flat Kick nose and tail. With the kinky twin tip shape and that black metal graphic, you’ll be murdering it from the highest peaks to the lowliest of jibs.”
Lib Tech – TRS C2BTX – $560
“A total ripper—nothing less. One of the winningest Good Wood boards in history is back again. The stiffer flex and C2 Power Banana camber combo give this Lib team-favorite solid-edge feel and pop when and where you need it. The serrated Magne-Traction edges grip and grab in the most bulletproof of ice. Add in the top-shelf wood core, basalt blended fiberglass, and twin geometry, and you’re ready to send this thing anywhere.”
K2 – Raygun – $360
“An all-mountain maniac. It hacks it down steeps, through trees, and it can slay it in the park. It has a mellow reverse camber—flat under your feet to the outer inserts, with a smooth early rise in the tip and more flat in the tail—great for float in pow and quick, effortless turns. With its slightly tapered shape and setback stance, you’ll be making carves a ski racer would envy.”

The 2012/13 season is right around the corner. Here are three more, highly anticipated boards from our favorite brands including Lib Tech, Never Summer, and GNU. All of these boards can currently be found on BuySnow.com and are ready to ship today. Be sure to hit us up with any questions concerning binding compatibility, features, or shipping.
Lib Tech – T. Rice Pro C2BTX
Art of Flight tested, King of the Hill winning, valley leaping, Alaska ripping, Jackson Hole freeride & jib sticks. 100% shredtassium for sliding in and out of tricky situations with ease in all types of riding conditions: hardpack, park, pipe, pow, rails, and even ice. For psychoLOGICAL shredding advantages, Travis continues to have two shapes: a pow-specific pointy 161.5 & 164.5 and a park/jib-specific blunt 150, 153 & 157. And of course, factory de-tuned to Travis’ specs!
Never Summer – Proto CT
The 2012/13 Proto will continue to dominate! We’ve taken the powerful flex of the time tested SL, and blended it with the responsive dampening of the Evo to create the ultimate all mountain true twin. This board has the versatility of Never Summer’s patented Rocker & Camber Technology, our new Superlight wood core, graphite impregnated Sintered 5501 base and added a whole new element into the proven Never Summer Carbonium Series of boards.
GNU- Park Pickle
The Park Pickle takes the next step in snowboard specific geometries. Banana between your feet for easy riding, catch-free park freestyle performance, and unreal float in powder. Magne-Traction for unreal edge-hold everywhere. Asymmetric sidecuts and construction to balance the different turning mechanics required for heel side turns and toe side turns. Your body is asymmetric, your snowboard should be asymmetric. Park Pickles with a deeper heel side sidecut and unique asym core, are designed around progressive riding and modern freestyle duck stances in all terrain.
Our staff has been working diligently to get the new 2012 products in our catalog and live on our site. For those of us who still have a couple months before take-off, now is the time to take advantage of stocked shelves. As you know, the closer we get to white stuff, the harder it will be to purchase the snowboard you want…like the 2012 Lib-Tech Travis Rice Pro C2BTX, for example. You can also see this board and Travis Rice in the upcoming release, “The Art of Flight”. We already have the 2012 T. Rice Pro Model in stock and ready to go, and will be carrying “The Art of Flight” once it’s released in the Fall. With all this talk about the upcoming “Winter Storm Advisory”, we want to make sure that you are ready! Check out the short clip of the T.Rice Pro C2BTX from Lib-Tech Below.
