The Curated Take
I have gotten a new one each year, for the last 3 years. Once you get a flying V Custom, you won't need anything else ever again. For those who aspire to race down the mountain at break neck speeds, get the camber version. For those that want a board that can ride park, powder, groomed runs, trees, side hits, this is it. The flying V shape allows the board to maintain good edge contact when carving and going fast, and the rocker in between your feet allows the board to loosen up a bit when you want it. Make sure to get the size that fits your weight range best, these are great, but if you size up too much and you don't have the weight to flex the board, they can be difficult to maneuver around. If you slide your bindings back and point both toes towards the nose of the board, they make great powder boards too!
- Great for all mountain, intermediate-advanced riders.
- Very explosive, flexes well for side hits and larger park features
- All mountain qualities, with terrain park capabilities.
- Can be a little "grabby" for advanced beginners. Can catch edges easily.
From its humble beginnings, innovation has defined the Burton Custom series and set it apart as the most popular, versatile, and mimicked board in snowboarding. Since 1996, this icon has reigned supreme and constantly evolved with a proven formula that combines time-honored design with envelope-pushing ingredients to create a lightweight, poppy, and highly versatile board. Offered in two versions, the precision and stability of the Custom camber is the top choice for many pro riders, while the Custom Flying V Snowboard combines camber's power with the relaxed float of rocker for the best of both worlds.
