Smile 2013 Burton Custom Smalls 145W review

First post happens to be a review! Alright, (Mickey Mouse voice) Here we go!

Alright, I got this board brand spanking new on the 11th of January, straight from Burton. Unlike most things I get delivered, this one came on time. One week later, I went to my home mountain, Welch Village in Welch Minnesota, to test it out. I was BLOWN AWAY! My former ride, a 2010 Chopper 130, had NOTHING on the Custom Smalls. The conditions were kind of icy that day, so I was a little apprehensive, but this thing cut through it like a knife through butter. The Chopper allowed me to just do the basics, but now, my formerly unstable heel turn is perfect, and I'm even carving. A week later, I decided to take it to the park. This board, surprisingly, makes a wonderful park board. Bench boxes, rails, even those n'er-do-well mailboxes were a breeze. The next day I went, it was snowing like heck, powder EVERYWHERE . Though I expected a little drag, I was carving through the powder, and I never loved pow days this much. Most recently, I took it through a more advanced terrain park, a couple kink rails, a rainbow box, a dragon tail, and I was impressed on how well it was able to rocket all 111 pounds of my short frame over and across the park, because, well, I'm pretty speed scared normally, but the playful Flying V has kept me upright, even while bombing full bore, and has boosted my confidence as well. Can't wait to take it down a few black diamonds next time, its supposed to be a pow day!

What I like: Flexible, multipurpose, stable, rides wonderful both regular and switch, progression friendly.

What I could do without: Nothing, I love this board.

What I use it for: Park, freestyle, freeriding.

Tests conducted with 2010 Custom Smalls bindings and 2011 Hail boots.
