The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The Burton Ripcord Snowboard is a versatile and user-friendly board designed to cater to a wide range of snowboarders, from beginners to intermediate riders. Its construction and features suit those looking to develop and refine their skills on various terrains.

The Ripcord is ideal for beginners due to its forgiving nature and easy turn initiation. The board features a flat profile with a slight rocker at the tip and tail, which reduces the chance of catching an edge – a common issue for new riders. Intermediate riders will also appreciate the board's stability and responsive feel, which aids in building confidence on more challenging slopes.

During my time with the Burton Ripcord, I found it to be exceptionally accommodating in helping me progress from easy green runs to more challenging blue slopes. The ease with which I could initiate turns and maintain control was particularly noticeable. On one occasion, in light powder conditions, the board floated better than expected, making the experience enjoyable rather than intimidating.

Ideal for
  • Exceptional Turn Ease
  • Durable Construction
  • Effective Carving Ability
Not ideal for
  • Limited for Advanced Freestyle
  • Good but Not Exceptional Flotation

The Burton Ripcord is a great option for snowboarders on the rise who are still looking to progress their skillset. The Ripcord's tip and tail kick up with an early rise outside the feet for a catch-free confidence inducing feel. An increased pop in the tail and a more resilient nose allows for riders to easily maintain control through all terrain and conditions.

Key Features:

  • Easy Bevel Edges – The design gives riders an incredibly soft and forgiving board that’s difficult to catch an edge on.
  • Fly 900G Core – The simplest of Burton’s cores, the Fly is made up of two wood species that lighten the core, but still give it strength, pop and flex.
  • Extruded Base – This base requires little maintenance and provides a speedy feel without the need for waxing.

Daniela was very good at incorporating her experiences with equipment to answer my questions. She was very responsive to my concerns and all of the interactions were helpful. She knows the Curated resources very well and also shared many of those throughout my search. I highly recommend her.

Alex is the best!!! 💯🙌🏻
5 /5
I’m brand new to snowboarding (but have done other board sports🏄🏻‍♀️🛹) and know nothing about snowboarding! I’m so thankful for Alex because he was able to find me the perfect board, bindings and boots - all within my budget! He also was able to answer all my questions and get back to me fast! On top of which he checked on me after I received my products to ensure everything fit right and was to my liking which I really appreciate! 😊 Lastly he reminded me of my credits that I had from my first purchase and recommend multiple options for things I can spend it on that are easily forgotten about when your new to snowboarding (even though they’re kinda important - such as gloves, goggles, travel case, etc). Definitely will be recommending Alex to all my friends who are interested in getting into snowboarding and for other friends who are planning on changing snowboards but not sure what is best for them! And for sure will be a returning client - when it’s time to change my gear! 😊🏂
