OK, I’ll cut to the chase – Burton’s 09/10 marketing tact annoys me. Their catalogue – The Good Book – implying it’s the bible of snowboarding, is self-indulgent and alienating.
Gentemstick and Dupraz have been making boards with rocker for years, while Burton and the rest made snow/skate cambered boards that don’t perform well in the pow.
What redeems Burton is their V-shaped Custom Rocker.
This rocker under your feet energises edge control, while disengaging tip and tail contact points for a catch-free feel with added stability and pop.
All is forgiven.
