Newbie: Infinite ride

Hello all, first time poster here. Just a newbie snowboarder and have a question.

What exactly is an "infinite" board. My friend is telling me that usually you need to buy a new board every 2-3 years, but with a so called "infinite-ride' board you wont need to buy a new board everytime. Now is that true?

thanks much.

Essentially what the poster above stated. According to Burton they "over build" the board and then put it through a process that simulates a couple years of riding...so when u get it its broken in. Whether its marketing I dont know. I have an 07 Custom but i've only used it for 1 season so far...so i cant make a judgment on its "durability"
