Burton Mystery

***Update: I bought it***

Im curious to know if anyone has or knows someone who has had a chance to try this board. Its ridiculously expensive I know, so im not asking if its "worth the price", but rather if its great or not.

I can get one for 20% off and im thinking of just saying what the heck and getting it. I spend money on dumber things.

haha, i guess, but still i like to do research as much as possible on bigger ticket purchases. I cant find a single review or comment on this board anywhere. Apparently they only made 250 of them so maybe thats why.

I have not ridden it. But isn't 20% off still $1K? Still not worth it.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

The Method and Mystery are superfluous snowboards. They are less about catering to riders and more about the level of R&D that can go into a snowboard.

It probably rides great. I know the Method was super duper light and expect the Mystery to be no different. However, the Custom X and Vapor are plenty light themselves if what you want is a stiff, damp, light board.

Personally, I can't say I would buy it even if I were rich. There's just so much you can get with that money. We're talking an entire setup - board, boots, bindings, jacket, pants, and gloves - for that price.

Thats a fairly good description of what the board is. Maybe ill see if it drops a bit more before swooping in.

If not for the performance of the board, then at least you can get it for keepsake and collecting.

Haha.

Thats true acutally. Its a bit of a colelctors item. Would look cool just hanging on the wall. In person I have to see the graphics BARELY shows. It really looks more pure black then how that pic shows it. Its freaking light.

I heard the core is made from sparkling goat vaginas on this board, and that is what makes it special.

Buy it if you want OP. Personally, I would buy a nice board, and a shitty board intended for use on rocks, then go have a beer and still have some change.
