Default 07/08 Burton Twin

Just a couple of questions for anyone who has ridden this board.

I was wondering if this would be a good choice for an all around board meaning a little all-mountain riding, a little park riding, and not much power riding. I know it is freestyle specific but I have heard that it is a little on the stiffer side than a regular park board. I'm 180lbs and have size 9 feet so I was also wondering if the board will be too wide seeing as it is described as a mid-wide board or if I even need to worry about that.

Do I need to worry about the width? I'm kind of the opinion that whatever is under my feet I'm sure I can figure out how to ride it.

i'm not big on burton boards, and the last board i owned was a rome anthem 156.. my local shop got rid of rome because they were to pricy and no one was buying them.. so now they have brought in forum young bloods/manual's and a few burtons one being the twin...

i don't know much about burton boards because i never really paid attention to them at all due to all the mainstreamness that they got.... plus i loved my rome... so now i've narrowed it down to the youngblood or the twin...

can anyone give me some pros and cons??? also with a size 11 boot a mid wide board, would it be big enough for me?

oh i ride a mix of everything.. park, street and mountin, not really any powder around here though.

thanks
Bryan

I wouldn't want to ride a wide board on size 9's. Seems like that would give you major control issues. Do you have any overhang at all?
