The Mod Rocker is a board that has been thoroughly enjoyed by many since its inception. Its previous incarnations have been great snowboards. But for 2015 the minor tweaks that we felt when riding this have allowed it to finally rise to the top to be an award winner.
K2’s Fastplant gets a bit of an overhaul for 2015 and in my humble opinion it becomes the board it should have always been. I could sit here with this intro or you can just read the review for yourself and come to your own conclusion.

The powder twin revolution of snowboarding has been great for those that don’t want an aggressive set back directional deck. The K2 Ultra Dream has been one of our favorites since the first time we strapped it in. Here’s what we had to say about it for 2015.

After a whole summer of reviews we’re down to the final award winners which will be announced soon. For now take a look back through the boards that were tested and do your research as the season is soon upon us.
