"Case in point: the surf-inspired Weston Japow was our top-rated board this year, which is remarkable since we never got the chance to ride it in the deep fluff it’s designed for. Instead, testers made do with corduroy groomers, leftover stashes, and slush, and still the retro wide swallowtail “railed responsive turns like an Indy car,” as one rider put it. The Japow’s carving abilities “made groomer runs an art form,” said another."
