The Curated Take
In a recent session at a mountain resort, I tested the 2024 Burton Custom Snowboard across various terrains. Its carving ability stood out on groomed runs, offering smooth, controlled turns. The board transitioned seamlessly to rougher trails, maintaining stability, a testament to its versatility. However, in deeper powder, it fell short in flotation compared to specialized powder boards. This experience highlighted the Burton Custom's all-around reliability, adept for varied conditions but not specifically tailored for deep powder.
The Custom's versatility is a strong selling point. It adapts well to different riding styles, making it a great option for riders exploring various mountain parts. However, while it handles most conditions easily, I found its performance in deep powder to be moderate, lacking the exceptional flotation in specialized powder boards.
Overall, it's an excellent choice for those seeking a reliable, all-around board. Its responsiveness, durability, and versatility make it a worthy investment for casual and serious snowboarders.
- Responsive Carving Ability

Our most trusted board, backed by a cult following as snowboarding's one-answer to all terrain.
From its humble beginnings, innovation has defined the Burton Custom Snowboard 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™ combines camber's power with the relaxed float of rocker for the best of both worlds.
