Need help deciding, What burton would you choose?

I thought I would throw this out there..

Basically I am choosing Burton because, I can get it at cost..I am leaning towards the vrock,but I know they have amnny types.. Any other suggestions? If you were choosing a board from Burton with the same riding style, what would you choose?

6'2" 210, all mountain, powder, kickers, some of the time in the park.

If you want a rocker board I recommend the Joystick, Easy Livin Flying V, Flying V, or Custom v rocker. If you want traditional camber then I recommend the Custom, Custom X (if you want a stiff board), Love, Twin, or X8. I ride a Custom (regular camber) and love it, it can do everything all over the mountain.

It depends where are you going to be most of the time.

Without V-Rocker, and you go 50,50 park and mountain, get a twin. Which is a softer more for park board

if you like all mountain freestyle get the Custom, or Custom V-Rocker.


thats the best I can do until I get mountain percentages

you got it right, this board will mostly be for all mountain freestyle, I don't go in the park much anyway, I have hit the kickers, a rail or two, I guess I can use my old board for that..

Just having trouble deciding between the custom, custom rock, or something like the flying V.. herd that the rockers are hard to ride, and takes some getting use too, bit im sure ill like it as i get use to it

I would say take the Custom. The Custom v I cannot give an accuracte statement but from what I have heard from people I know who ride the board say that the custom is better.

I dont really know why.

The custom is a directional board but it will let you hit rails find, it is a usable park board, but most parkboards are twin tip shape, which makes riding switch a whole lot easier. But 180s isnt much of a worry on the rest of the mountain.


so my conclusion

Custom 10'- 549.99
EST Cartels 10'- 249.99

Great setup.

I'm the exact same build as you, 210 lb's 6'2", so I'm guessing your feet are around the same size as mine (11.5 snowboard boot, but I could be wrong). But if you do have large feet then the Custom V-Rocker is out of the question because it doesn't come in wide.

If I were you I'd go with the Custom setup suggest earlier or you could get a Joystick if you want the rocker

I run an 11 boot now, I think it would be the borderline size.. I will have to check the width on the custom v

I'm running on a 164 CSTM X Wide with Large EST Bindings, angles are at +12 -12 and the bindings span the entire width of the board. If you go with a regular waist width, pretty sure not only will your boots be hanging over, so will the bindings.
