2009 Burton Operator

Just a quick question about the operator. It is my understanding it is more geared towards freestyle (due to the fact that it kind of says that on the description on the back and that it is Shaun Whites board and he is all about freestlye.) I was wondering why it has all the qualities of an all mountain board, like directional flex and a low flex?

Thanks, GoofyRider

It's a pipe board.

It's slightly softer than an all mountain board. Also, doesn't have a setback.

The Operator is a really fun park board. It's got the right mix of flex and sidecut to let you get shradical with it. One of the few burton boards in a while I was pleasantly surprised with. The full review is somewhere on my blog I'm too lazy to directly link it.

Ok thanks a lot. I guess all I am wondering now is how it will hold up in switch with its directional flex. Because Im in switch a lot just because Im not that great and I can only do 180s
