Burton Blunt

Hello all,

I am going to purchase a snowboard and would like some input from experienced people. I am 5'1" and weigh 125lbs. I have rented and gone out about 10 times so I can ride, but there is a lot of room for improvement. I like to cruise and find jumps to jump off of. Not a speed demon or a huge rail guy (not yet anyway, but prob will change). I have been looking at the blunt 147. It seems flexible and forgiving, but what about cruising. Is it just a park board or can you still cruise the mountain on it without problems. Again I like to cruise, but I don't nee to go fast. Any info from people that have ridden the blunt would be appreciated.

Oh and you won't be going fast with it, it has an extruded base so pick up a few temperature specific waxes when you start to get comfortable.

The Blunt will be fine for you. At 147, it'll handle decent freeriding until you're comfortable enough to blast down the mountain. By that time, you can use this board for the park.

Legal, is there a diff between last year's board and this year's? I didn't think there were any major changes

I am looking at both: 09 because of the price and 10 because it seems they have made some improvements. Which would be a better choice. Thanks for the replies so far.

09 is a bottom-of-the-barrel beginner board
2010 is a respectable park stick

Any suggestions as far as some other boards that would be a better option than the blunt.

Im very impressed with the blunt this year. So much new tech without the price hike. Usually burton cant wait to raise the price when something new comes out but i commend them for this one. I probably will be picking one up.

Ive got the 2010 Blunt and it could be had for a good price through Sierra (30% off right now and if you type facebook10 into the coupon line you will recieve another 10% off as well).

Id say its a good beginner board and really flexy, maybe a little more flex than id like. As far as speed, if the run isnt nicely groomed you will feel the board flexing and bouncing you off of all the little bumps so be prepared for that.

Im a beginner so I dont have too much experience yet but I feel this board is good for jibbs and small kickers as well as going on nicely groomed runs. I went on my first black the other day with it and had to speed check myself due to me not being use to the speed and how the board jumps around. I rode my friends never summer (cant recall model) but definately a all mountain board and much stiffer which made all the little bumps I was talking about earlier not even noticeable.

So for what you stated youre into, I do think this board would fit your needs and like I said you get those discounts plus the board has a free LTR and lift ticket to select resorts you can use!!

Hope this helps.
