I gave a vague answer because you asked a vague question. I don't know what you're using the blunt for. Are you using it for park? Are you using it for pow? Steeps? Trees?

Is it a good board for doing what type of riding?

It can be a decent board depending on where you are riding.

If you will be mostly in the park with this board then it will do fine. Anywhere else, not so much as it is a rather flexible rocker board which is not ideal for riding with speed. Its manageable cruising at a good clip if you know what you are doing, but it won't be super stable outside of the park.

I think I had a Blunt in 2009, it lasted me about a month. I got it warrantied, but for a board to last one month is rough. I was a beginner back then, I hit small features in the park... No dents or dings, it just delaminated.

I got my new Blunt and sold it immediately. So unless Burton did some major over hauling in that board I would steer clear.

I have a Burton Blunt from 2012...and it's a snowboard. So far it's lasted me 10 days but I haven't put it to the test in the park. It's torsionally soft but not a noodle, at least not in my ever so slightly oversized version. Slow base. Unimpressive edge hold. Not very stable, I think it's sent me flying every single time I've tried flatbasing - but then again I'm not very skilled. And then again you're not supposed to carve or go fast with it. It's made for cruisin', jibbin', and butterin'.

The 2014 has changed a bit compared to the older versions - most notably it went from V-rocker to Flat Top (flat to rocker), which probably has made it a little more stable.
