Flexing a new board??

I just got a new Burton Custom (first REAL board.. w00p w00p) and I'm hearing that I should flex the sh*t out of it so I can get that stiffness out.. I've been doing it for about 10 minutes with my boots on and am just wondering how long and how hard should I be flexing it? I'm kind of scared to break it.. but I do notice it getting a little less stiff.. Still pretty hard to get that front foot in the air for an olley...

yeah pretty much bullshit i mean you can get the initial stiffness out it wont do much until you ride it for a while. and the burton coustom has what they call infinite ride. basically they over pack the board and then break it in for you at the factory. this gives it the same feel throughout its life, they claim it gives it more pop but ive never ridden a board with it so idk

Like everyone has said, it's pretty much bs. However, you can actually benefit by practicing soem tricks or something. That way you get better at a trick and you can spend some time breaking in the board
