The 98’s shape is progressive, with a curved top aimed for lightweight stability, yet it still values traditional edge grip—thanks to that proud Austrian heritage—over a loose, slarvy feel. To that end, it preferred quick carves on groomers over crud, where testers complained it made their thighs burn. It’s not an easy ride—last in Forgiveness—but experts will appreciate its stability. (Testers also complained that its name smacks of Euro dudes sitting around a table brainstorming what “feminine” means.) But in pow, it surfs just fine. It has a wood core with air channels milled out to save weight and sheets of vibration-calming metal. “Solid, predictable feel,” said Gibbons.

Strengths: Flotation, Quickness/Maneuverability
