The Armada is made for those who prefer a board with the performance of a professional competition board but with the comfort of a freeride twin tip. It is light, durable and aggressive while providing the right flex to protect your knees by design. Version 8 of Best's famous performance board comes in lightest possible materials with a 3D top deck which is both thin and strong. The Armada is fully equipped with our Prime pads and straps.

Freeride, Freestyle and New School – Ride It Your Way
The Armada is an incredibly versatile board that easily adapts to the conditions at the spot as well as to the rider’s style and abilities. It delivers highest performance on demand, no matter if you go for a mellow freeride session or an action packed freestyle shred. The Armada will help you break your limits and soar to new heights.

Quality – Lightness Meets Durability
Eight years have passed since the first version had been launched and in this time the materials grew better, the knowledge and experience advanced and high tech manufacturing became available. Today’s version of the Armada is made by skilled hands in Europe using high tech machinery. The Supremo Paulownia wood core is cut with a laser guided CNC machine to provide a precise base to be merged with a rare unidirectional Carbon Tech Fiber. This construction tangibly enhances the board control while keeping the weight at a minimum. All that combined with our bomb proof block inserts allow the rider to even use the Armada with boots. The Armada passed intense long term tests and is matter of strict quality control.

Grip and Control – Stay Ahead Of Your Game
To ride with speed in choppy and gusty conditions and also to master sketchy landings, you need a board with grip. The Armada’s sharp step rail and channel design offers incredible control by steering the water flow. Combined with the 45 mm G10 fins it provides a remarkable grip. Going upwind and holding the edge to power up your take-offs suddenly comes natural and you will always stay in control.

Features – Advanced Technology For Greater Performance
The innovative reversed 3D torsion shock absorber constructed into the top layer of this board make the Armada a smooth ride. Especially when landing tricks or riding chop the 3D shock absorber structure protects your knees and adds more comfort. We optimized our Torsion-X reinforcement to increase the board’s stability and tweaked the 3-stage rocker line to perfection. Our new Prime straps are super light, avoid soaking up water, are anti-slippery while the damping foam clings to your feet. The Armada provides everything you need to perform!
