The Wooden is designed for freeriders after a slightly stiffer flex than the Apikal who appreciate the stunning wood topsheet. Like the Apikal the shorter boards are slightly softer and use a hybrid rocker/camber profile and a standard directional shape offering a more all-mountain versatile ride. The longer lengths are slightly tapered and use traditional camber, providing float without sacrificing edge hold and power out of carves.

It would be understandable if you took the Good Boards Legends under your arm with a pair of boardies on and tried to paddle out the nearest break. The wood topsheet with its Hawaii inspired flower motif screams surfing.

Good Boards are new to the market for this season. Based in Germany and heavily supported by German shops you’ll be hard pressed to find these limited production boards outside of Europe. The Apikal is the softest board in the Good line and is available with two different profiles, the 59 and 162 use a profile with rockered tips and camber between the feet as well as a 10mm setback stance and a standard directional shape. The 165 and 170 have traditional camber for power out of turns and edge hold with a 30mm setback stance and 10mm of taper for float in the deepest of powder.
