Salomon isn't afraid to boast about its Sick Stick board -- the description ends with the line, "We are claiming it right here; the Sick Stick is the best powboard in the world!"

But what makes them so confident? The combination of performance -- try it in deep powder -- and eco-friendly construction, from its use of bamboo laminates to the bamboo and cork side rails. (Sick Stick, $600)
