Best Park Snowboards 2019-2020

Chosen by the Whitelines Test Team

What defines Park snowboarding? It’s hard to pin down, because there are so many sub-categories that live under that umbrella term. Are you a big old jib kid? Are you looking for a board to quad cork on? Do you only like riding half pipe? Freestyle snowboarding doesn’t even have to take place within the park ropes, street riding has long been the preference of some of the most prolific freestylers in the game.

As a general rule of thumb, a park board will be based around a true twin outline, so you can feel just as at home taking off or landing switch. It’ll also help to balance out the swing weight of the board, keeping you steadier when you’re throwing it around.

The profile of the board is completely dependent on your riding style. A positive camber profile will offer a more explosive pop for boosting off of kickers and gives more aggressive ride for riding and gripping in an icy pipe. The camber dominant profile can sometimes be a drawback if you’re a really playful jib kid, a bit of rocker in the nose and tail will mellow out the ride. You could even look towards a fully flat board which will give a real loose skate-style feeling.

The flex of your park snowboard is also super subjective. Stiffer boards will be more stable when you’re hitting bigger features and can help you to stomp those huge landings. A softer flex is generally the preference for those who love buttering and flatland. The softer board will also be a gentler introduction to those who’re newer to freestyle and don’t want a board that’s gonna kick their butt quite as much.

So, there’s no right answer to what makes a great park snowboard, it’s completely decided by your riding style. To give you a helping hand our Test Team put a whole bunch of boards to the test, and these were their top picks for get tricky.

Capita Super DOA Snowboard 2019-2020

PRICE: £600/ €650

Though this board is capable of taming the whole mountain, its undisputed stomping ground is within the park ropes. Capita place positive camber between the feet keeping the board lively, aggressive and spring loaded, with longer flat sections that blend into rocker at the tip and tail. The result is all the pressing flatland versatility of its predecessor, but with added snap and crackle.

K2 Medium Snowboard 2019-2020

PRICE: £470/ €530

The camber section acts as a springboard and offers a boost for when you’re wanting to ollie and jump about the place. The early rise rocker in the nose and tail make the board a little more mellow, while the slight lifts make the board a bit less catchy. A slightly stiffer flex underfoot makes the board a bit more responsive but not to the detriment of the overall softer flex.

Rome Agent Snowboard 2019-2020

PRICE: £370/ €430

A bamboo rod is buried in the board at either end, starting between the inserts and heading out towards the tip and tail. These lil’ hotrods shoot power from underfoot outwards, so you can load up ollies and slashes without messing with the torsional stiffness. The blunted nose and tail are perfect for reducing swing weight as you’re locking down those spins and give the board a shorter running length whilst keeping the same effective edge.

Salomon Huck Knife Pro Snowboard 2019-2020

PRICE: £470

The added Popster Boosters give the board an almost skateboard-ish feel, making your ollies feel more snappy.

Bataleon Global Warmer Snowboard 2019-2020

Endeavor BOD Snowboard 2019-2020

PRICE: £499

The 3D camber is a full tip to tail camber, but the contact points have been slightly scooped up, to give a very subtle “spoon” shape in the nose and tail. This offers the best of both worlds. You get a snappy, powerful feel and all the rebound normally associated with traditional camber with a more forgiving feel at the ends that doesn’t compromise the overall pop.

Gnu Riders Choice Snowboard 2019-2020

Good Novum Snowboard 2019-2020

PRICE: €559

The Novum has the characteristic freestyle shape and profile – a true twin with a camrock profile – but the outline looks like just about nothing else out there on the market. The extra width underfoot will keep the Novum stable when stomping bigger landings in the park. Triax fibreglas and a dual wood core keep the board stable and responsive, while carbon and Kevlar stringers will add pop into the ends of the board and keep some of the chatter at bay.

Jones Aviator Snowboard 2019-2020

PRICE: £535/ €600

Out of all the Jones lineup, the Aviator is the most at home going switch. That’s partly down to the 3D contours in the base of nose and tail, which loosen up the contact points just enough to prevent the deadliest hookups. Given its name, there are no surprises this one’s performance is tailored to the air. The takeoff and landing gears are equally impressive.

Lib Tech Titty Fish Snowboard 2019-2020

PRICE: £520/ €580

This year the Titty Fish has lost the crescent-cutaway nose in favour of a more twin-styled shape at either end, so it gives bumps up the freestyle characteristics without detracting from any of its freeride performance.

PRICE: £420/ €480

A bamboo rod runs outwards towards the tip between each set of inserts, this rod packs the board with the pop it might have lost by eschewing a camber profile.
