The custom is a good board and you can also get it pretty cheap. My local shop has it for $230.

Custom is a great board for everything from learning to park to all mountain. The only area where it is a little weak (like 95% of all boards) is high speed carving on firm snow/ice.

Since you're new to the sport, save yourself some money and get last year's model or a used one in good condition. Also - try to demo a board or two.

i rode a custom ics all last season. i loved it.. great board. Its only weakness as mentioned, I found was edgehold on ice wasnt great. ICS makes adjusting your stance to suit conditions a snap.

Is there such thing as a board that holds a good edge on ice? That is more a mechanic of the ice than the board.

I have exactly the board you are looking at, it does pretty much everything well. The only other board I would consider getting at this stage (Given I am locked into Burton because of ICS) is a malolo, and that wouldn't replace my custom. It would be just for powder days.

i picked up a 2009 custom x last month for 280.00. I am told it should work a little better on ice because A) its stiffer and B) the X has PDE (pressure distribution edge).. similar to magnatraction. I havent tried it yet, nor can i comment on magnatraction.. but i hear it actually helps. I looked closely at the malolo but decided to get a Fish Ltd for pow days.
