Burton Twin 2010

I am 5'5" 120 lbs, and I ride a burton twin 151. The twin is a mid flex board, which is great anywhere in the mountain. It has a negative profile core unlike boards like the custom X, allowing more control at non flying speeds.

The twin has a midflex rating at 4/10 which is a little stiffer than most ideal park boards since this board is supposed to be made for more than just the park. It is twin shape and twin flexible making switch riding, and switch jumps as easy as doing it normal. (if you can ride switch just as well). The board is a park beast, and can handle most of the mountain well. It took me a while to get used to when I first bought it, but you catch on fast.


Unfortunately, unlike what is made for, challenging runs are horrible on this board if you like to go fast. My first experience of this when I was doing Martis at lookout mnt at northstar, and once at high speeds, I was bouncing around everywhere, it didnt feel solid, and created an unstable, bumpy ride. On the other hand, my custom X that i rode 2 months later there was much easier to ride, and in fact I was able to ride straight down the whole mountain with small carves. At speed the twin doesnt have fast enough edge transition, grip, and stability. I dont know if the bindings I use have anything to do with this though (Mission ESTs) on the CstmX (cartel ests)

A little thing that isnt that big of a deal, the living color doesnt work very well. it works when you put a block of refridgerator ice on it, but not in the snow.

I do recommend this board to a person who is a intermediate rider and doesnt ride aggressively. A stiffer board helps when picking up speed and having control for a jump, but it doesnt make much of a difference when riding fast.

Sorry for the bad grammar and 3rd grade level sentances. Im tired and cant write for shit right now.

Please comment any questions and what you think of the review

if this goes well ill post a review on the Cstm X the Easy Livin the Punch and the custom

Well since I never rated this board, i would give it a 9/10,

It isnt meant for high speeds, but does everything else well.
