BEST FOR: PARK

“The only negative: most other boards I rode couldn’t live up to it,” one tester scribbled after a test run, during which she noticed how nimble and lightweight the Velvet Guru was in the park. Its camber-rocker-camber profile (the inverse of the Scarlet) and soft flex give it tons of pop and a low, fun swing weight. We were surprised at how well it plowed through chunder, but as expected, it was too noodly to hold an edge on hard-packed steeps.
