2008-2009 TWS Good Wood/Future Snowboarding Boards Tests
14 May, 2008
Each year two snowboard tests come out from respective magazines, Future Snowboarding and Transworld Snowboarding Magazine.
These board tests are talked about and people do listen to them. I say with any board test or review, remember the people riding these boards are not you…you might interpret boards differently than a pro rider or test rider. Here’s my take on the list for 2009.
I just started hearing about boards that have been placed in the lists this year.
So here’s a heads up on the 2008-2009 Transworld Good Wood and Future Snowboarding’s board’s of the Year.
