Nitro Woodcarver 2018 Review by The Good Ride

The Nitro Woodcarver was a super fun ride and it really lives up to it’s name it’s a super fun board to turn and has a really dynamic feel underfoot. It’s not as directional as it looks compared to most with a similar look.  It’s very close to being a double ender in terms of tip/tail width, has only a -20mm set back on side cut and it carves well between the feet and off the tail.  It’s got more set back on board though so it’s going to do well in powder too. We also liked the play on side cut and it did feel like it not only enhanced the grip but the turn as well. We only had a few runs on this but we really wanted to spend more time on this and compare it to some of our favorites. It’s definitely a board that shines for those that like a springy rewarding turn to carve but the early rise rocker in the tip/tail seems to round out the ride so it’s a good ride from hard snow to powder.
