He's probably riding his board from next year. Leo got to ride them IIRC, he'd know.

Burton and just about every other snowboard company have temporarily disaffiliated themselves with any of their team members competing in the Olympics and more likely than not, their gear too. On March 8th, I'd look again. For all we know, it could be custom, but there's a chance it's not and it's just waiting to be unveiled.

suppsedly, it's a 2011 TWC Pro (the white collection) with a 3D insert customization

The consumer version of the TWC Pro will have ICS channel inserts

Yeah a lot of people have notice. The topside of everybody's boards are solid though - nothing on top was visible. Also, a lot of competitors would wave their boards in front of news cameras to show off what little they could.

Its most likely next year's burton operator, which is the board that he rides regularly. There is no graphic on the top because they probably havent decided on a topsheet graphic yet, just like you could see on the custom x's that kokubo (japanese rider, whatever his name is) was riding.

I think the operator turned into the TWC for 2011:



...though, don't know why SW decided to stick with 3D inserts on his personal board

At his level I wouldn't be changing a thing as I imagine even the little things could throw him off. I imagine his snowboard is no different than a sock for the rest of us.

By that I mean. Once you find a sock style/brand/size that fits you. You will go out of your way to get more of the same when the time comes to replace the old ones.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!
