Burton Ripcord Snowboard · 2023

$419.95

Solid deck for progressing on, with its flat profile, you'll get a catch-free ride so you get tons of room for freedom of trying new things and keeping your confidence levels up! The softer flex gives you a ton of opportunities to get jibby in the park if you so desire but keeps the ride as a whole, mellow. Not much this deck won't be able to do all over the mountain.

Directional flat camber allows you to turn easily and float when the mountains fill up! with a tiny bit of taper from nose to tail this board turns easily without and grabby feel. Great option for riding blues and greens and progressing to every part of the mountain.

Beginners primarily, if you want to take it into the park it will do a fantastic job there. The soft flex profile linked up with the flat bottom and rocker at the tip and tail make this an awesome starter!

Intermediate and advanced All-Mountain riders who like a playful, intuitive board that still rips hard when you need it to. This directional shape has a tapered nose for easy turning and plenty of rocker up front for endless float through pow. Directional medium flex allows for more pop in the tail with a resilient nose that's easy to control. A durable, sintered base keeps you going fast all day and holds tough when you're not being gentle. Riders who love to explore the entire mountain and hit a mix of terrain, will love this one!

This board is make for speed and carving, but still has a mellow enough flex to be playful when needed. Directional shape, with traditional set back camber for driving carves, and a long nose for those deep days in the pow and added float. Stiff nose blasts through chunder. This board can be ridden in any terrain!

Burton Stylus Snowboard · Women's · 2023

$399.95

Summary: This is a sweet board for the casual snowboarder who just wants to explore the whole mountain! It's forgiving enough to make a great first snowboard but resilient enough that it'll work for those who have been riding awhile and are still exploring more technical terrain! It's got a twin shape for experimenting with riding either way and soft and forgiving flex so you can spend more time riding and less time falling! It's also burton's most affordable board!

Notable Features:

  1. This board's profile (the shape of it when lying flat) is "rocker-flat-rocker" this is the most forgiving snowboard profile on the market and makes it very easy to experiment with new riding styles. It's what I've ridden for years even as an advanced rider because it's very confidence inspiring!
  2. The edges on this snowboard are lifted upwards ever so slightly which makes it very difficult to accidentally catch an edge and faceplant! Don't worry though, they aren't lifted enough to be able to feel the difference, all you'll notice is that you aren't randomly falling like you might on other boards!

This is one of Burton's best entry-level boards that is easy for learning on and forgiving...you won't be catching a bad edge! Soft flexing and very playful. Has a flat to rocker profile which is really nice for learning your first turns. It is a twin-shaped board so the nose and tail are the same width and shape. High quality construction...great first timer board!

Get straight to the fun part! The Instigator is made with the entry-level rider in mind but has the performance characteristics that even an advanced rider can appreciate. With a soft flex, this board is extremely forgiving or can be used to jib your way through the park. The Cruise Control convex base keeps it catch-free and allows riders to focus on the hill, not their edges. The Channel mounting system gives you the easiest, most adjustable setup, with bindings from all major brands- including Burton. Burton has been making boards since the inception of snowboarding, so they know how to make the best board for every type of rider.

All-mountain riders looking to ride a little bit of every type of terrain. The purepop camber will help the rider truly get the pop you need on jumps, rails, boxes, and tabletops. The camber underfoot will create a phenomenal edge for carving and digging into the snow for great edge hold. The rocker at the tip and tail will help with turn initiation and float in powder.

This would be a board that your son could progress into, since it is on the medium flex end, rather than softer and more forgiving, but I am going to put it out there for you to consider. It is the right length for his weight and height put together. Beginner to intermediate Riders who would like to take it in the park or all-mountain, and who would like to avoid catching an edge. He can ride both directions on this board.

All mountain, park riding. Geared toward intermediate/advanced riders. This is your standard camber true twin snowboard that will ride everything. The twin profile will ride switch well and have the same flex pattern for park features, spinning off jumps and for freeriding. The medium flex profile will hold an edge riding the rest of the mountain and if you ever travel to resorts with more vertical, it will still hold an edge there too.
