Default Flying V Question.

When i put my Burton 152 easy livin on flat area, the "forward" always is on the ground and not balanced. *the board has no bindings on it*
Is this normal?

Burton boards are mass produced in China. Ditch it and get a Never Summer. That's what I did, you won't regret it!

Snowboards are not precision instruments. There is a certain amount of variance in their manufacturing process. Its fine. Ride the piss out of it.

To mister NeverBoner regarding buy Neversummer cause Burton is mass produced, what do you think has better consistancy, hand ground, edged, and cut, or something done with more machines? My money is on machines for consistency. Oh and the EL is made in Europe. Fuck off. We dont need your useless sheep mentality bullshit.

thats because on that board there is more rocker than camber and my understanding is the EL is directional. if it was a true twin u would see both ends up in the air but due to more nose on the board, it causes it to rock forward in a sense and rest on the ground (like trying to balance a see-saw).

You might want to leave it under something heavy while you're sleeping tonight.
