Default Burton Custom VRocker '54

Hey all

Im reso New to Boarding Started During June Last Year

Picked up a Ride Societ 57' at the end of the Season

and Picked up a Burton Custom V Rocker 54' two days ago for half of new price..

Opps Didnt realise the Custom was a Set back Board.. i just saw it was cheap and grabbed it for use as a Jib Stick for the Local Snow Dome

I set up the Bindings using the Reference Point Eek 21inch felt super narrow.. and running setback was an sensation I haven't experienced in a while.. board felt super quick but not easy carve hard or play on

Are These Boards Twin Tip even tho they are Directional.. It States Twin Flex on the website... but this is something im yet to confirm...

and can i use the EST to run a Centered Stance (as possible) with Duck 15/15

On my society I have my Stance widest possible and 15/15

The Custom V-Rocker is more of an all-mountain freestyle board. Its still pretty soft so you can bring it into the park for some fun, but it would not be my first choice for such a use.

To clear up the flex issue. The board is a direction shape, set-back stance, and twin flex. The V-Rocker takes some getting used to you. You'll feel a lot better on it after some adjustment. Read my thread (click follow my season) for more info.

Cheers mate she was cheap at the time so I thought what the hell. I'm not really a park monkey I like carving down the hill switching etc... I like hitting the odd jump but can only pull basic 180s .. Can I get way with centering the bindings and riding both ways.. The set back is only .4 inch after all. She seems way more lively and responsive than the society assuming the RC is the reasoning behind that

I have measured tip and tail bit can't see a visible difference
