Everything about the Woodro was designed to optimize board feel on features. The 100% Paulownia wood core profile gets flexed out and pressy on anything in its path. We use our Ti base for fluid motion over obstacles and long lasting durability. ABS sidewalls run along the edge the whole board to protect your deck from dings. Independent channels run near the edge of the board just under the binding areas. This adds a little grip while keeping the prime sliding real-estate free and clean for a catch free ride.
