Fischer Koa 84 (2012)
**Review courtesy of our sister publication SKI Magazine.** The Fischer Koa line has the perfect recipe for a ripping yet friendly ride: a wood-core construction with light carbon inserts. It' s responsive but not twitchy, and aggressive but not punishing. It carves on groomed like a traditional-camber board but, on the flip side, it can nosedive a bit in the dry Utah fluff.
