What should i do? burton snowboard

I'm from Argentina, After snowbaording for 10 years I'm going to buy a burton snowboard. I think i've U$S450 to spend on this snowboard. I was thinking on buying the custom, Shaun White, Jeremy or Jussi... what do you think is the best one and why?
Size isn't a problem.

thanks a lot

I would also suggest other brands. You can get the same quality, if not better for a lot less. Also, what type of riding would you be doing? The custom and the Shaun White (from what I know, I don't know much about Burton) are two totally different boards

life IS good.

Burton has a higher manufacturing defect rate than other brands simply because their boards are almost oversaturating the market. Personally, I'd look into these brands:

- Rome (I personally support this over any other brand, their boards have proven consistantly to be amazing.)
- Graft
- Agent
- Solution

- Bataleon
- Riot
-
Nitro

- Team
- T1
- T2
- The Eero

- Elan
- Answer
- Prodigy
- Tribe

- Salomon
- Prospect
- Special

These are my suggestions. Here you go.

Personally I have the 08 burton twin and i love it. Graffics are awsome and the board rides sweet in the park on on the trail.
