Custom X *thoughts*
so ive been riding my park board ( Burton X8 ) all season long and totally neglected by Custom X, due to the playfulness and softness of my X8.
I learned A LOOTT on the X8, never really messed with it at the park, but just dialed in my carves, dynamic turns and also landing jumps better and flat basing it.
So yday i decided to take out my custom X so that i could get used to it again after a yr of not riding it, and to also prepare me for when i take it to UTAH in 3 weeks.
The first run was scary, because i rememebr how fast this board was from last yr of riding.
After my first run, i got accustommed to its stiffness and how much feel u have for the ICS/EST sys.
Oh baby what a joy ride...I never slayed the double blacks as fast as yday.
the first thing i noticed is how much wider my sidecut turns were due to the carving nature of this board...i never knew abt this last yr cuz i didnt know what **Carving** was.
This board is truly a piece of Snowboarding Engineering.
Moral of the story
Guys, if ur planning on getting a custom x as ur first board, then dont, first learn how to master the basics on a soft board and then set ur sights on the custom X...Trust me, you will appreciate your progression in this sport more, as well as this boards capability
Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless
